Paddle Board Pilates, is a great workout! So happy they thought of this. In Miami, you can find Paddle Board Pilates and Paddle Board Yoga classes that are offered year round. Now that the water is warming up, you can find more classes on a weekly/monthly bases. What to expect? A great workout with great instructors. How much? $40 for an hour long class which includes the paddle board rental provided by Adventure Sports Miami (come on! how many times have you spent $40 on a bar tab, why not spent it on something good for your soul and not to mention fun).
If you’re in town and you want to experience Florida’s natural beauty, ocean while getting a great unique workout in, then look no further then Paddle Board Pilates. Never been on a paddle board before? No worries, you are encouraged to arrive early to class (about 15 minutes before the start) to get the basics down. My instructors Leanne and Paula were great and super helpful. Below’s a pic of LeAnne Henry, C.P.T., she runs Fitness Express Miami and offers other types of fitness classes in Miami outside of Paddle Board Pilates. Click on her pic or the logo to have it take you back her site and sign up for a class! I promise you won’t be disappointed. Her bubbly personality will be sure to have you motivated to push yourself during any one of her classes. Plus she’s from Tennessee who doesn’t love a girl from Tennessee?
The class is one hour long and consists of a 15 minute paddle board warm up, in shallow water, followed by a 45 minute Pilates class all on the done on the paddle board, also in shallow water. No, the classes aren’t held in deep water shark infested waters or anything like that. The worse that can happen is you get a friendly shrimp that jumps on board with you.LeAnne walks you through all the moves and even gives you options on how to kick up your poses. Balancing on the ground is pretty tough now try to balance yourself on a wobbly paddle board and really feel your core become engaged. Kiss your fat good bye, and welcome a tone body that you’re proud to show off at any beach. And then brag to your friends about your awesome adventure.
