Changing up your exercise routine is the ideal way to embrace the beauty of summer. We adore soaking up the sun with workouts that that boost our summer spirit. Perfect for soothing the soul, summer fitness is the best kind. Get moving with these outdoor adventures, which we recommend trying on a fine summer’s day or while you’re on a tropical holiday.
Who doesn’t love the idea of being able to ride a sweet wave? Surfing brings out your inner beach babe and is also a killer workout. An invigorating natural stress relief, surfing also improves cardiovascular fitness, shoulder and back strength as well as leg and core strength.
Stand-up paddle boarding is a super fun sport, a fabulous tummy toner and a great arm work out. Paddle boarding is also the ideal way to get out and see some truly stunning scenery. Still water beaches or lakes, lagoons and rivers are ideal for paddle boarding – otherwise you may be in for a wild ride. This worldwide fitness craze is also amazingly uplifting.
Embracing the great outdoors nourishes the mind, body and soul. Simply hitting the water and swimming laps outdoors is a refreshing and stimulating way to get some cardio into your day. We love embracing our local Sydney beach pools for a breathtaking experience, such as the iconic Icebergs in Bondi. If you’re on holiday, snorkelling is a fantastic way to explore while being active.
Beach yoga is the ultimate way to develop your flexibility and strength. Practicing yoga on a hot day at the beach delivers similar benefits to a Bikram class, but with awesome visual benefits. The biggest perk of beach yoga is getting to dip in the ocean once you’re done. The healing and health benefits of yoga are endless. Yoga helps to clear the mind and remain balanced while improving your fitness, flexibility, strength and posture.
Training on the beach is a fun workout escape. Breathing that crisp, salty beach air will make you feel brand new. Our favourites include boxing, sprints, strength circuits and boot camp style training at the beach or your preferred outdoor location. You could also simply go for a long beach run to tone up those legs.
So what are you waiting for? Get active, soak up the sun and enjoy that never ending summer.
