Fitness Stand Up Paddle Boarding Series (SUP)

Join MST Adventures and the 2018 New Mexico Whitewater Stand Up Paddle Boarding Champion / Fitness Coach, Corey Spoores in our popular fitness SUP paddling series. This fitness series is broken down over 6 dates of on water training where we build a base level of fitness, mobility, and technique. This series will be capped off in time for the Eagle Nest Paddle It, event (Series 1) and the Southwest Outlaw SUP event (Series 2).

We begin each session with paddling based warm ups and mobility, then we transition to land based technique. Afterwards we paddle upstream for a resistance/ tempo-based workout. During this series you will improve your balance, stability, and learn to read the water like a pro.

This is great cross training for any athlete, fitness enthusiast, or those looking to just have a great time. We will be offering this in connection with Southwest Outlaw SUP.

Our fitness SUP series is broken down into 2 different session. The first session will begin in April and run through the end of June. Our second Session will begin in July and run into September. Session 2 will build on the strength and endurance built during the first session.

Paddling a SUP will work your core, obliques, back and shoulders. This is great cross training for any athlete and those looking to just have a great time.

Distance

Our fitness paddles have less to do with distance and more to do with time on the water. Sure we can cover 5 miles without much problem; but we will be working on 30-45 minutes of upstream paddling, once our warm up is complete. Then we will have a great cool down paddle back to our starting point. 

Physical Fitness Required

We are happy to accommodate any fitness or experience level, but a moderate level of fitness is suggested for this event. You will need to be able to carry 30 lbs (the SUP) from the parking lot to the river, with minimal breaks.

Where

Our fitness paddles will be on the mighty Rio Grande. We will launch in Corrales, NM, or Albuquerque, NM, and head down or upstream depending on the training plan. Please call or email for more details. (505) 717-2526 or email cspoores@mstadventures.com
