Sweat it Out Surf Style
Let’s be honest folks, once Queen Bey says something it spreads like wildfire so it’s no wonder we’ve all got “surfboardts” on our mind… well, at least surf-style fitness classes (minds out of the gutter!). Surf style classes have been growing in popularity for some time now – whether it’s a Paddle Fitness class (which I recently enjoyed at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Oahu, Hawaii!) or a SurfSet class, offered at many locations including Spa Montage, at the Montage Laguna Beach. The exciting workout takes you out of the water and onto the SurfSet surf board to really work out, shape, and tone your entire core in 60 minutes!
