Happy Summer! It’s the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors with amazing weather, sunny skies and plenty of recreational activities to choose from. Become one with the sea as you escape to the beach. There’s nothing like the fresh ocean air to stimulate your senses and nourish your mind, body and soul.
Join me every weekend to play! Surfing is one of the most challenging activities out there. Not only do you need good core strength and balance, mobility is a key element as well. It’s a skill which takes time to learn, but the process can be accelerated by getting into shape specific for this activity.
I developed Surf Fit this summer as a way to help people have fun outdoors while getting into shape for surfing. Strength, mobility and posture is the main focus of this program. All too often, I don’t see people properly warm up which increases chances of injury. Due to the technologically advanced world we live in these days, poor posture contributes to a variety of aches and pains. This can be further exacerbated in activities, especially surfing. You need good extension of the spine to pop up as well as range of motion in your lower body. If your job requires sitting for hours, you will be extremely tight and out of alignment. If you do nothing to offset these issues, your limitations may lead you down a dark path.
Learn how to take care of your body with me every weekend at Beach 67th in Far Rockaway. We start with a 15-20 minute warmup before we hit the waves. One hour complimentary board rental provided by Breakwater Surf Co. Don’t miss out as classes will be held until the end of August. All details can be found at:
Make it an all day beach day. Bring your lunch, snacks and beverages. We can do a stretch/yoga session after, play volleyball or whatever your heart desires.
