Paddle Fitness Club
Stand up paddleboarding is becoming more popular each year. In the last several years millions of people have begun to enjoy paddleboarding, while standing (SUP). People now engage in stand-up paddling to enjoy the water, spend time with friends, and to improve their fitness level.
The Paddle Fitness Club is intended to bring paddlers together on the water for a great full body workout, work on your technique, learn some new techniques, offer your own experience to others. Why paddle alone when you can join a Paddle Club! Please come join us for a regular weekly scheduled class to increase your paddling fitness skills while having fun! Workouts will include cardio, strength, endurance segments and Smiles! The goal is to prepare you to participate in an end-of-season paddling event and build our paddling community!
We will meet every Wednesday at 6:30pm and paddle for up to 2 hours (depending on weather and sunset)
The cost for a board for the paddle out is $35.00(includes board, paddle, leash and PFD)
BYOB (bring your own board) $25.00 – please bring your own leash and PFD.
Package 4 classes for $120.00

Paddleboarding will provide you with a great core workout as well. Almost every muscle in the body is used at some point. A large part of SUP is balance. Your leg muscles will be hard at work attempting to maintain your balance. In addition, paddling utilizes the arms, back, and shoulders to propel the paddleboard in the water. The core back and abdominal muscles are constantly at work to maintain your balance.
An additional benefit that SUP provides is that it is a very low impact exercise. Therefore, it is unlikely that you will do damage to the tendons and ligaments of your joints. If you lift weights in the gym or you engage in high impact sports, then your likelihood of injury is far higher than with stand-up paddling. SUP is particularly useful for runners that are experiencing shin splints or knee and hip pain. With this type of sport it is possible to use up a lot of calories without damaging your joints.
SUP Fitness Benefits
One of the clear benefits of SUP is the very fast and obvious improvement of the fitness level of its practitioners. It is a very good sport to engage in if you are cross-training since it uses almost all the muscles in the body. SUP is a form of simultaneous aerobic and strength training
There are numerous health benefits to paddleboarding and the best part is it will not cause any damage to your body while you enjoy it. The cardiovascular benefits are truly amazing. You will be able to substantially improve your level of cardio fitness. Of course this translates into many benefits for your body, including a decreased incidence of heart attack and stroke. In addition, you are going to burn a lot of calories. This will likely translate into a loss of weight. Most of us are aware of all of the adverse conditions that are associated with being overweight. You will reduce your chances of getting diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and joint problems by reducing your weight, and SUP can help you accomplish this. There is one more great benefit to be aware of… it is very relaxing and a great way to relieve stress. Stress, has countless adverse health consequences and negative effects on the body. I have personally found that stand-up paddling has always been an excellent stress coping method for me. Once I get out on the water and start paddling, I can literally feel my body and mind relaxing as I get into the paddling rhythm.
This is NOT A LESSON, so if you would like to start paddleboarding as a workout and have never paddled before then please sign up for one of my paddleboard lessons and I can get you started.
