Stand Up Paddling as fitness training
In addition to the aspect that stand up paddling is great fun, it is also ideal as a fitness training. The fact that the balance must always be maintained, both the coordination ability is trained, as well as the legs, stomach and buttocks. Furthermore, the paddle movements train the arms, back and shoulders. And the nice thing about standing up paddling is that you're out in the open air in nature, rather than just monotonously doing the same exercises in the stuffy gym.
