Widely known as a competitive water sport, surfing has now taken a plunge into the world of fitness and is helping those looking for something new and challenging, ride the wave to a tighter, svelte body. “Surfset Fitness” uses the “RipSurfer X”, a surfboard designed for land, to melt away fat and build lean, toned muscle.
Surfset works by mimicking the demands required for traditional surfing. If you’ve water surfed before, then you know balance, core strength and a strong upper and lower body are required to get one from a flat on your tummy position to standing on top of the board in one fell swoop in a matter of seconds. RipSurfer X requires the same muscle control and agility sans the sharks and rip tides of course! The RipSurfer X board is versatile with adjustable levels from beginner to pro, and if you’re looking for some resistance training, the board has you covered with that also. There are four loops that allow one to attach resistance bands for maximum burn.
The “Surfset Fitness” workout is slowly washing across the country with studios in major markets such as LA, New York, Scottsdale, Miami as well as Canada. However, if classes aren’t your thing, or you’re simply not up for gaining your sea legs in front of a crowd of strangers, no worries. The creators of this awesome workout have made the 35 pound surfboard available for purchase to use at home for $550 as well as surfer workout videos. In my opinion, this is an awesome workout that uses compound movements to test endurance, build muscle, and get your cardio on in a single workout, and who knows, you might just pick up an awesome new talent along the way.
