#ACTIV8 - Get the Most Out of the Sun, Sand & Salt!
Whether you’re lucky enough to live near the beach or you just like to stay in shape while vacationing in paradise, hitting the sand and surf for a workout can be a fun challenge for your muscles – and you can build in a great sweatfest with no equipment!
A few things to keep in mind:
Make sure you’re wearing weather-appropriate clothes and shoes, slather on the sunscreen, and bring your sunglasses!
If you’re on soft sand or in the water, you’re going to be using your muscles in new ways. Even if these are postures or moves you’ve done before, make certain that you go at a slower pace or at half-strength until you know how your body is going to react.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! You’re going to be in the sun and certainly will be dealing with more humidity than you normally would have in your air-conditioned gym, so be smart and safe.
If you’re going to be working out in or near the water, please make sure you can swim – and it’s always a good idea to take a buddy to help in case you get a cramp or need assistance. By Katy Widrick @kwidrick
