Get on board: Try stand-up paddling in the Hamptons


According to the New York Times, stand-up paddling is the new “it” workout. And the Hamptons have quickly become the front line for New Yorkers wanting to learn and enjoy this core-focused water workout.

stand-up paddling in the HamptonsAccording to the New York Times, stand-up paddling is the new “it” workout. I believe it: Last weekend in Burlington, Vermont, I noticed that SUPs (that’s stand up paddlers) outnumbered kayakers 2:1 on Lake Champlain. The new sport now even headlines retreats, as our friends at Social Workout pointed out, with dreamy-sounding sessions in Puerto Rico. And the fitness-forward Hamptons isn’t missing out. Two New York City fitness instructors are leading the “Ultimate Hamptons Workout” in Bridgehampton this month. And KamaDeva Yoga in East Hampton hosts full-moon paddles on Georgica Pond.

For beginners and group fitness enthusiasts, “Ultimate Hamptons Workout” sounds like an ideal way to get on water. This series of eight classes, hosted by Magen Banwart of Physique 57 and Orion, an Iron Man triathlete, will be a surf-and-turf combo of stand-up paddling and basic yoga stretches (on land).

And yes, stand-up paddling is exactly what it sounds like. You literally stand on a board that’s a little longer and wider than a surfboard and paddle, which engages the core while strengthening the muscles in your legs, glutes, back, shoulders, and arms.
