Wave Jet, Indo Yoga, and Wave Shape: Three Warm Fitness Products and Activities I Want to Try as Soon as the Weather Gets Warmer

With the all of the snow we have had this winter, I am already dreaming about warmer days. Since spring is only a few months away I found some cool new products that would be awesome to try!

(video above found on Youtube…I did not shoot this one.)

1.  Wave Jet  

Surfers some times have to deal with days when there are no waves or the waves are so-called “mushy” and hard to paddle into. Those days may be a thing of the past thanks to the, Wave Jet, it is a new jet powered surfboard that does most of the hard work for you.  It will power you through big waves that you would normally need a jet ski to tow you in or it can push you through small waves that otherwise would be near impossible to paddle and catch.

A wrist controller powers the surfboard and is completely waterproof. One of the best parts is if you fall off the board the wrist controller shuts down when the surfboard is farther than about 10 feet away, according to the website.

As of now it looks like they are only available to rent at four locations, three in the United States and one in South Africa. Until then I will keep researching until I find a place that I can actually try it.

2.     INDO Yoga Board 

One of my first posts on my blog was on SUP Yoga. I loved it, it was so different and a great workout. Now that it’s colder and the bay has had sheets of ice on it, SUP Yoga is on hold until the spring.

However, I found the next best thing. Indo yoga, Check it Out.

It does not look like there are any classes close by, but you can buy an indo board for $390.00 or you can buy a SUP Yoga package, which is a little different from the Indo Yoga Board. It will only cost you about  $140.00 which is cheaper but it’s a little bit bigger and might be harder to store in your house.

3.     Wave Shape Fitness 

To go along with the  spring/summer fitness products, I found a new workout called Wave Shape. It brings the movements of surfing into a fitness class. And the best part is there are classes available online that are free. So you can start the Wave Shape class now!


Happy 2014! To Make a New Year Resolution or Set a Goal that is the Question

Happy New Year or is it Happy Resolution. It seems to me that the New Year  is always over shadowed by the daunting New Year Resolution. It almost feels like every time someone says Happy New Year it is immediately followed by the question, what is your New Year Resolution? Jeesh put me on the spot why don’t you. Honestly, I have never made ” a New Year resolution.” I set goals every year throughout the year and try to accomplish them.

A friend of mine made a good point about writing down work goals, personal goals, and spiritual goals you want to make throughout the year. This allows you to stay focused and realize what you have accomplished and what you have left. A big problem is some of us are too busy to realize that we may complete more goals throughout the year than we think. So make sure to write your goals down.

Finally, most of us regular gym goers dread the first two weeks of January because it will be crowded with new members who are trying to lose weight and get healthy for their New Year Resolution. Try not to be that person that puts down the new gym goers, yes it can be annoying but they are making the right step towards a healthy life. A little encouragement never hurt anyone. So be a gym buddy or show some one how to use the fitness equipment at the gym this year!

Hope you have a Happy and Healthy New Year.
