Friday Fitness: What’s SUP?

H3 is excited to “re-announce” our adventure fitness summer series activity: SUP! SUP is an acronym for “Stand Up Paddle”.  Stand Up Paddleboarding is a surface water sport, meaning it is a sport that is performed atop a body of water. Stand Up “paddling” differs from “surfing” because essentially you do not need a wave to propel you. Instead, you propel yourself by using a paddle.

Just like standing on the BOSU, standing on the board requires basic balancing abilities. By engaging in activities like SUP you are actively working to strengthen and tone muscles in your legs, buttocks and core. The “paddling” facilitates muscular gains in all the muscles of the back, shoulders, arms, as well as core too. Thus, it is a TOTAL body workout!

My motto for SUP is “Strength Unites Pleasure”. It is for many a new, challenging, FUN form of cross training. It’s low impact and people of any age, and/or any athletic ability level can participate. So what are you waiting for? Come back to H3 and join us! Next time someone asks you “WasSUP”, you can reply “I am what’s up” or “I SUP”!

Watch this video for a step-by-step tutorial on how to paddleboard. Look out for pictures on the Hilton Head Health Facebook page coming soon!
