Try something new: Stand-up paddle boarding

Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) is a new, unique, water sport that is growing in popularity.

Growing at a fast rate over the past three years, it provides substantial, beneficial exercise activity with a full-body workout.

Stand up paddle boarding will improve cardio respiratory endurance and positively affect your body composition when used. It is a fun, unique alternative to traditional cardiovascular endurance sports such as jogging, biking and swimming, while still achieving an intense workout.

The American College of Sports Medicine recommends 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise five days a week or 20 minutes of vigorous-intensity exercise three days a week in order to achieve health benefits. Paddle boarding at the same physical level you would if you were running an 8-10 minute mile pace is sufficient effort to meet the physical activity guidelines.
