My girlfriends and I really loved practicing Pilates on our boards. It definitely added some extra balance to the activity. The ambiance of being on the water along with the sunshine made the experience feel a lot more like fun than exercise.
The verdict came in quickly that we could not wait to schedule our next “paddle board girl- time”. Honestly, I donâ€™t see us entering the next local paddle board race in October (http://www.sarasotasupseries.com), or spending 1,000â€™s of dollars on high end paddle board gear. I don’t think we will be finding ourselves discovered as local Paddle board celebrities, and it’s also unlikely that we will be featuring our “Pilates-Paddleboard six- pack abs” in future videos. However, it is very likely that we will be putting on the sunscreen, packing a little cooler, and taking advantage of paddle boarding in beautiful Sarasota as a regular pastime. We found a new sport we love and let’s be honest…. our roller blades have collected dust for a long time. We needed to find this sport.. we love it and we are actually working out and having a lot of fun!
If you are interested in renting paddleboards on Siesta Key contact Siesta Sport Rentals at www.siestasportrentals.com TIP: Point of Rocks has many beautiful rock formations and colorful fish.
If you would like to take a Pilates paddleboard class contact Studio RubyLake at www.studiorubylake.com
Guests staying at Tropical Beach Resorts can also have paddleboards dropped off right at the beach. Go ahead.. Dare to be a little adventurous… Encounter dolphins, manatees, and schools of fish while getting a full body workout while walking on water!

The south bridge, Stickney Point Road, provides access to south Sarasota County and a direct route to Interstate 75.
There are two main shopping districts right on Siesta Key, each with a wide variety of shops that carry merchandise ranging from seashells, and T-shirts to the upscale clothing, to ice cream. The Village on Siesta Key is located on the northwest side of the Key about one block from the Gulf. The Siesta South Shopping area begins at the Stickney Point Bridge and goes south along Midnight Pass Road. There are free shuttle services that run til 2am on the island that will pick you up at your vacation residence and deliver you to wherever you want to visit, these services run on gratuities, and are a great way to explore the hidden coves and real estate on the island!
