SUP for the Summer!

Hey Everyone!
Happy to announce that my site is fully up and running again!
I recently moved back home to Chicago and I can’t tell you how amazing it feels!
There’s nothing better than summers in Chicago (Yes, I am a little biased).
With that said, I just acquired a (SUP) Stand Up Paddle Board and I am obsessed!
I love to incorporate a ton of outdoor activities into my workout routine and this one is truly a body blaster!

Stand up paddle boarding is an amazing total body workout that focuses on balance, stability, both core and upper body strength and some cardio as well!
Along with cruising down the beach I tried some SUP yoga… Definitely not easy but I am always up for a challenge!
Sup yoga takes regular yoga to a whole new level… SUP yoga takes away a major stability factor from regular yoga and forces you to constantly adjust your body to maintain balance!

Let me tell you, without balance, you’re going for a nice dip in the lake! (I learned this the hard way! haha)
Nonetheless, I absolutely loved every second of it and I will be back for more!
Here are some fun shots from my day on the lake!
