SUP Equipment Needed Recommendation

Station X Online

New to SUP? This blog is here to point you in the right direction. I spent hours finding the best setup & accessories for the beginner. Hope this helps, I found the inflatable to be more convenient & accessories that came with it well worth the money. The only extras you WILL NEED is a tether & life vest.

This is the board I researched & purchased. Excellent quality & very surprised how sturdy when properly inflated. Comes with a gauged pump, case & everything to make my 1st voyage the “Perfect Adventure”! Best, best value for the affordable price.

I purchased the following accessories to complete my mission:

Yes, turn your SUP into a Kayak in seconds. Was a must have!

This is just 1 of many tethers, of course I went with this one for the quality, value, included a waterproof phone case (Yes, it fits my Note 9) & it matches the board!

As I travel on my ventures there will be more blogs on tips, product evaluations & more!

RV Fitness On The Go

Traveling by RV is amazing, home on the open road, stopping to rest wherever you like, campgrounds friends & nature…did I mention camping food & goodies?

Home Sweet Home, RV Life

Of course; most of us gain those few extra pounds while on vacation & it’s so easy to focus on that R & R, that we forget about our bodies.

I fully recognize that dilemma & am here to give you some tips & product ideas for your RV – no more travel excuses…

My goals for this blog is to show you with convenient packing & storage of fitness items, how to keep it fun & to keep/get in shape on the road.

My 1st item is a good quality Yoga/Fitness Mat. They easily roll or fold for very simple storage. Can be used for several regimens including meditation. I chose this Roam mat not only for its quality but the folding & carry bag. Perfectly priced & bag can be used to carry other items as well.

The Perfect Mat

Be sure to view the various bands & even jump ropes that can be stored in bag too!

The “Yoga Wheel” is a definite must have! After hours on the road theres nothing better than an extensive stretch with this wheel. I stop every couple hours & do some “RV Wheeling” – feels so great I do longer trips with little to no toll on my body.

The Wheel is a little more challenging to store, but overall value is a must!

Teal Yoga Wheel, color coordinated with my mat & SUP!

Another unique item I recently found is the portable & easily storable “Lifeline Jungle Gym”!!! So perfect to attach to a tree, RV anchor & more. This unit switches between body weight work & tension…can’t wait to get this for my next RV Adventure! Go to my shop & see all about this one…

Dream Machine of the Wild!

With these 3 items you can be in better shape when you gather home. Next blog will focus on basic moves introducing my new course: Fitness on the Road; RV Style!!!

SUP Outdoor & Indoor Fitness?

Stand Up Paddle Boarding has been growing in popularity as a fun & adventurous fitness activity.

My Board & I

Station X Online

I am so totally addicted for SUP for it allows one to enjoy the water, get an awesome total body workout, relax, can incorporate Yoga & other stretching regimens just to name a few!

Some boards can be customized for fishing, yoga/stretching, seating & passengers – even for our furry friends.

I’ve taught group fitness classes since 2005 & loved my Surf-n-Tone Classes…with use of small simulated surf boards. I found taking this regimen to the water has added so much more excitement & challenges.

Being a fitness professional I offer my recommendation on the following:

Energy based attire that helps increase energy with energy return fibers. The fibers convert natural thermo energy from your body into Far Infrared Ray’s to push your anaerobic limits!

Energy Shirt
Energy Pants

Gnarly is loaded with electrolytes & B Vitamins, is low in sugar but big on flavor – I love the pink grapefruit!

Gnarly Hydration

In the title I mentioned “Indoor Paddle Boarding…YES!!! I found an amazing indoor board! And it’s not just for paddling…from beginner to pro this board is to maximize your mobility, flexibility & balance.

Perfect for “Indoor” Paddle Boarding, yoga, pilates, weight training & all other boarding sports!

This move is great if you travel or sit a lot & helps open hips & relieves lower back pain. Is kind of fun too watching expressions on people’s faces!

All you have to do is get up & walk; however backwards!

Stand straight & take steps backwards.

When I travel & stop for fuel or rest I walk backwards around my vehicle 4 – 5 times…YES instant relief & I can go on for many miles!!!..
