By taking the concept of stand-up paddling and incorporating fitness and low-impact core strengthening, you’ll understand the concept of the board, paddle and a workout for the body, mind and soul. Living and training in both California and Florida provided Mike Conlee the perfect opportunity to take up standup paddling as a fun, social activity, but after a few months of regular SUP sessions Mike noticed his favorite new pastime had toned his body more finely than it had been previously, and his clients were commenting on the changes. With the slogan, “There is nothing worse than a repetitive work-out” as his driving force, SUP was a natural fit for Mike’s lifestyle and drive for success. He began to incorporate regular SUP activities into his personal training and following an overwhelming response from his clients; SUP Core Fitness Classes were created. Urban Kai also offers private lessons where you get one on one training for stand up paddle boarding.
These classes are designed to improve paddling technique, efficiency and speed, as well as turning skills, agility, and balance. Additional strength training activities are practiced on the board and the classes also include SUP exercise land based training. Each attendee is provided with the necessary equipment to participate in the SUP Fitness Class including boards and paddles (if you have your own equipment, there is a lower cost to the class). Participants can expect to have fun while learning intermediate to advanced skills that will enable them to fully benefit from the health and fitness results of stand up paddling.

Sarah Lesch, a certified yoga instructor will lead this yoga and paddleboard class. Stand-up Paddleboarding is a wonderful adventure and a great chance to get out on the water, taking our yoga off the mat and onto the beach. We are utilizing both our core strength and increasing our ability to balance. We start off on the beach, warming up with a half-hour yoga and meditation practice, then we paddle for half an hour finishing up with a 15 minute cool down and stretch.
