The physical and mental benefits of practising Stand Up Paddle are well known: it provides a better equilibrium, increases strength and muscular endurance, improves body coordination and self-esteem, develops aerobic capacity, etc. But the beneficial effects of stand up paddle (SUP) go beyond that, or that was the conviction of Susanne Lier, an experienced fitness teacher with a passion for water sports. She invented the Paddlefit®method in 2011, which keeps you fit in a fun and safe way, mixing SUP and fitness. Paddlefit® is suitable for all levels.
The most outstanding contributions of the Paddlefit® method are the:
- Training of the whole body
- Fluid and smooth strengthening of back muscles, abdominals and legs
- Suitable exercises for people who suffer from ankle and knee problems
- Activation of our Proprioception and body consciousness
From the beginning, we supported the excellent idea to combine SUP and fitness, since it is a fantastic way to get fit outside the four walls of a gym whilst enjoying the weather and the sea. We already spend many hours of our day stuck at home or at work, so it is always better to seize the opportunity to enjoy leisure time outdoors.
Keeping our philosophy to offer more and better services to our consumers, we made contact with Susanne in order to learn from her and to become the ambassadors of Paddlefit® in Barcelona.
From June 1, you can enjoy Paddlefit® classes regularly. In the membership class schedule, you can find all our timetables, practically on a daily session. The activity is included within our Membership passes at no extra cost. Those that are not in Membership can join the activity with a contribution of 20€/each session.
Come to try it and have a great time getting in shape while enjoying the summer!
