SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) Fitness Classes at Lagoon Watersports will focus on the exciting world of SUP Fitness and SUP Yoga.
The classes will use Stand Up Paddle boards (SUP), and the beach combined with traditional exercises, to give a new effective and unique workout experience.
On the six week course you will start by learning the basics of SUPing through the BSUPA Ready to Ride Course. So no previous Standup Paddle boarding experience is required. You will then go on to improve skills and start SUP fitness and SUP yoga.
If wetsuits are required we will provided them. Just dress in sport clothing and trainers. just wear gear that you would not mind getting wet just in case you fall in ! Bring a towel.
Basically you perform different exercises on a SUP board. SUP fitness is a world away from your average workout – as you are on an unstable platform you increase the intensity of every exercise; whether it be a hardcore press up or a more gentle downward dog Yoga position, the options are endless. Exercises can be designed to meet any goal from improving your general fitness to more specific goals such as strength gains. Once you’ve had a go you’ll never set foot in a gym again!
SUPing can provide all over health benefits. It’s a great tool for increasing your core stability, strength and flexibility, it will also help with functional aspects such as balance, co-ordination and proprioception – all things that come in useful on a daily basis. Not only does it offer massive fitness benefits, but you will also feel better in yourself as it’s a great de-stress provider.
Single sessions are available to those that can already SUP – it does work out more expensive. Single sessions are free to Lagoon Beach Club Members.
