In addition to being a lot of fun, stand up paddle
boarding is all about pursuing an adventurous, active
lifestyle. To some, the fitness byproduct of stand
up paddle boarding and SUP surfing is just icing
on the cake, but to others this phenomenal core
workout a paddling session involves is one of the
main reasons they go out on the water on a frequent
basis. Until you’ve tried SUP, it’s
hard to understand the full body workout that is
involved while stand up paddle boarding. Just standing
on the board is a workout for your legs and butt
as your muscles are constantly adjusting to counterbalance
the movement of the board and the water beneath
it. Start paddling and you core body and upper arms
start getting a workout. You can paddle faster to
intensify the workout, or paddle slow and steady
over a long run to get a surprisingly effortless
workout. It’s the most fun you’ll have
exercising, and its low-impact unlike jogging so
it won’t beat up your joints.
The fitness industry is starting to clue into the
physical fitness benefits of stand up paddle boarding
and thus a number of companies are popping up offering
various forms of SUP fitness including: SUP yoga,
SUP Pilates, SUP cross training, SUP boot camps,
and just general SUP fitness classes. We’ve
listed some of these fitness companies below.
