SUP is the fastest growing sport across the world. Because you don’t need waves to propel yourself, you can do it on any open water. Not only SUP is fun and perfect for your entire family (anyone can do it), but SUP also has a huge benefit for you. A total core and cardiovascular workout, stand up paddling works your entire body and mind.
All the SUP classes include all the equipment needed (board, paddle, leash). Stand up paddleboarding is a combination of cross training and pilates. Totally low impact, it will improve your cardio - endurance, aerobic, and anaerobic but at the same time, you get a full body workout, targeting arms, abs, thighs, and butts. All at once!
