Making Fitness Fun - Water Sports!

April 01, 2016

Finding it hard to get motivated to go to the gym or do those exercises you mean to do every morning? You are not alone! Many people find the gym or home workouts monotonous or isolating. So how do you get in your exercise without feeling like it is a chore? Make fitness fun and pure pleasure with on water fitness activities: standup paddle boarding and SUP yoga and on-water spinning in pedal-powered kayaks to name 3 of the best. Keep exercise enjoyable by:
  1. Trying something NEW! Instead of doing the same-old crunches, lifts or miles on the treadmill, try something you have never done before and make outdoor choices in-season! We suggest something that gets you outside especially during these beautiful days of summer! Stand Up Paddleboarding is the number one growing water sport currently. It works all your major muscles while keeping you entertained as you enjoy the scenery.
  2. Embracing the Great Outdoors! Regular exercise is about staying active. Finding excuses to stay on your feet. The great outdoors are full of these excuses. The more you mix up your activities, the more fun you’re going to have while getting fit. Kayaking, Swimming, hiking, rowing, paddleboarding, rollerblading all are fun outdoor activities that promise to not be boring!
  3. Sharing the Fun! You get an extra exercise bonus when you share the fun. Bringing someone along makes all the difference. Sharing these activities with another person or group multiplies the fun and can actually boost your results. Spending the day with a friend out paddling or rowing can not only give you a great workout it can help boost your spirits and make you feel connected again.
Remember everyone is at a different fitness level when choosing an activity. Choose a fitness activity that will be fun, will keep you motivated and one that you want to share with family friends. Then it won’t even feel like a workout!
