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!
