Tina, Jen and Sarah have put together a fantastic Fall and Spring SUP training program to help you maintain and build your fitness between paddling seasons which can help prevent injury once you return to spending more time on the water.
Jen provides her expertise in putting together an excellent 12-week interval training program specifically for paddlers that gradually builds up your endurance from one week to the next and can be done on the SUP or adapted for the bike, running or whatever your preferred cardio routine is.
Being a Registered Massage Therapist I found Sarah’s Movebetter & Restorebetter program effectively targets all the right muscle groups. The additional videos for myofascial rolling techniques and breathing techniques are extremely beneficial as this is the type of at home self-care I recommend to many of my clients.
The 4 weeks SUP On The Water program with Tina is based in Squamish and since I live on Vancouver Island Tina and I arranged weekly coaching calls which I found so helpful as she really inspired my motivation and provide me with a lot of excellent advice to keep me focused on my goals.
Within the first few weeks in the program I noticed an improvement with my bodies range of motion and an increase in my endurance during the High Intensity Interval Training workouts. Tinas supportive coaching and enthusiasm for my progress is a huge component for my success and her knowledge in guiding both the training on the water and on land is exceptional.
I look forward to continuing to build on these skills in the next sessions in March. I have found this to be an excellent program that you can adapt to fit your schedule and will keep your paddling body and mind fit for when SUP season gets busy.
Coastal Fit is a great program for any paddler who wants to take their skills to the next level. I did the program in the spring to get in paddling shape and I am so glad I did – I was able to paddle longer and more confidently than I ever did all through the summer and beyond.
The 3 aspects of the program (endurance, shoulder injury proofing and paddling coaching) really compliment each other, and touch on concepts that I hadn’t considered before but can apply now on my own. Each part is thoughtfully designed by the brilliant Jen, Sarah and Tina, and left me with precious nuggets of knowledge, training tips and paddling techniques that I’ve been using ever since.
I also liked having accountability buddies in the group – knowing we could share our progress and concerns each week gave me extra motivation to get on the water even when the weather was not at its best (brrrrr March weather).
All in all, it is a fantastic program that I would recommend without hesitation!
I took this program in the spring of 2022 and couldn’t recommend it enough. It’s great to have weekly accountability to get out and paddle, no matter what the conditions. Tina, Jen and the rest of the NHX team have developed an incredible program that builds strength, develops skill and adds mobility to your paddling routine. Thanks to this program I was able to improve my paddling and participate in some nice long paddling trips this year. I’d do it again in a heartbeat!
