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!

Shape Magazine Brings Rowing Workout to the Readers

This is a rowing machine. Some use it and some do not know what it is for. But this machine has the potential to burn a lot of calories if used right! Photo Credit: Alison Mastrangelo

Rowing classes are becoming more and more popular and are popping up in a lot of major cities. Since I am not patient enough to wait until a class will come to South Jersey or the Philadelphia area, I decided I had to take matters into my own hands and do some research.

That’s when I saw the tweet that Shape Magazine tweeted about the new rowing workout, that you can do on your own!

The workout is easy to follow and they give you a cheat sheet if you need more descriptions on the different rowing moves and techniques.

I really enjoyed it!  Some people at the gym stared as I rowed for a few minutes then got off and did weighted lunges at the side of the machine. Then I continued to row for a few minutes, and then got off again and did planks etc. However, it was a nice change to my workout routine.

Try it out and let me know what you think!
