SUPfit have been busy working hard over the last year and are now very excited to announce their new SUP Fitness Instructor Training specially designed for SUP instructors.
SUPfit Press Release:
Working alongside Active IQ they now offer a nationally recognised SUP fitness qualification, giving SUP Instructors the opportunity to spend three action packed days on the water learning how to teach SUP Fitness and enabling them to deliver three of SUPfit’s signature classes including SUP & Run, SUP Circuits, SUP Stretch & Strengthen. Upon successfully completion SUP Instructors will hold a nationally-recognised fitness qualification and be part of an exciting SUPfit network that is growing rapidly across the UK.
The last few years has seen Stand Up Paddle boarding in the UK grow rapidly. SUP Fitness has also seeing a massive rise this summer with national magazines and newspapers taking note and helping to push this exciting aspect of the sport.
As well as SUP being on the rise so is the fitness industry, the 2015 State of the UK Fitness Industry Report revealed the UK health and fitness industry has more clubs, more members and a greater market value than ever before.
With the fitness industry rise being linked to innovation and fresh thinking and consumers appreciating new experiences, maybe this can explain the growing popularity of SUP Fitness and SUP Yoga. Lucy McCormick founder of SUPfit tells us “Health conscious consumers are said to be looking for the most effective and fun ways to workout and performed the right way, Stand Up Paddle Boarding can offer a low impact workout and challenging exercise options wherever there is water”
Physical activity offers massive opportunities for individuals and society at large: improved health, but also huge potential social and economic benefits. Public Health England wants to drive a step change in the public’s health, as one in two women and a third of all men in England are damaging their health through a lack of physical activity. Tackling physical inactivity is a key part of making this change to reduce the burden of preventable death, disease and disability, and support people and their communities to achieve their potential. Having ran successful SUP Fitness classes herself in Brighton and Cornwall, Lucy tells us “By offering different options for people to get active, watersports centres can appeal to different markets and encourage people to partake in an active outdoor lifestyle, promoting physical activity”
