Do you feel like your workout has fallen into a rut? Have you stopped looking forward to going to the gym? Are you bored of using the same treadmill or doing sit-ups on the same mat every week? How about taking your workout to the water? The Mission Bay Aquatic Center, an Aztec Recreation facility located in Mission beach, has several classes to help breathe life back into your workout and get you excited about exercising.
Stand Up Paddling is an example of a fun and effective way to combine core strength with cardio. This dual workout technique works to increase your heart rate and help get you faster results! We offer four types of Stand Up Paddling classes: Stand Up Paddling-Basic Skills, SUPcore Yoga, SUPcore Fit and SUPcore Train. For first time paddlers, Basic Skills is a great class to get you comfortable with the equipment! You will learn proper stroke technique, steering, standing position, etc. all while touring Mission Bay. Our SUPcore Yoga class takes your yoga practice outside and onto your paddleboard, all while challenging your flexibility, balance and focus. SUPcore Fit is a fun way to get in a rigorous full body workout. Starting with a warm-up paddle, this class will lead into exercises working every major muscle group in your body. Finally, SUPcore Train is the perfect course for those interested in SUP races. This class will improve your long distance paddling, get you moving with a soft sand run and sharpen your interval paddle strokes.
