PADDLING...GREAT FUN, GREAT WORKOUT!There are so many benefits to "Being On Water" on a kayak or paddle board. For starters, it's great fun, and you can catch some sun! It's also extremely beneficial to your body...it's a great workout, yet it's a fairly easy activity. Stand up paddleboards offer a great workout because the paddling motion while standing up is driven by your core. It's also a way to get killer arms! Depending on the effort being put into stand up paddleboarding, a person can burn between 225 to 800 calories an hour. That's broken down into 3 common categories of paddleboarding: recreational light, adventure touring, and competition racing. Recreational light takes the smallest amount of effort, and burns the least amount of calories. Competition racing is the most energy intense level, and can burn around 800 calories per hour. Kayaking can have the same benefits, depending on how much effort is being put into the movement.
When choosing a paddleboard or kayak to purchase, there are many factors to consider, including the condition of the waters you'll be using it on, your ability level, your size and weight, and your personal paddling goals. When buying a board or kayak locally, Pentwater Outfitters has a knowledgeable staff that can help you choose the best board to fit the variables that effect your needs.
