Is Paddleboarding a good workout? Paddleboarding is becoming one of the fastest growing water sports in the country. This great outdoor activity is not only easy to learn, but also stimulates the mind and body for a full body workout. If you're looking for an amazing full body workout, look no further. These types of classes are highly regarded as one of the best core, strength training and balance workouts you can perform. Some of our Paddle Board instructors are Yoga certified and they may choose to incorporate some various Yoga poses into the class. Other instructors who are not Yoga certified may choose to practice more traditional strength exercises on the board such as squats, lunges, push ups & sit ups. Our biggest suggestion to you is to come try out different classes and figure out what you like!
No matter your age or ability, Paddle Fitness and Paddle Yoga are both easy to learn. As your paddling technique and skills increase, you can expand your workout potential. Come experience the benefits of this class at our beautiful lakefront YMCA.
Come dressed in clothes you don’t mind getting wet if you do happen to go swimming. Many participants wear comfortable shorts and shirt over top of a swim suit. Sunglasses for evening classes are recommended.
