Lagoon Watersports announces the launch of Lagoon Fitness in April 2012, with both land and water based fitness classes being introduced to Hove Lagoon, Brighton.
Hove Lagoon is a stone’s throw from the beach, with large open areas for outdoor exercise. The enclosed, shallow lagoon is the perfect environment for water sports enthusiasts to learn and improve their skills whilst the sea offers limitless opportunities for the more advanced windsurfers and stand up paddle boarders.
Aiming to provide a one-stop centre for fitness and water sports training, the new classes will focus on the exciting world of SUP Fitness which offers a full body workout to meet the personal training requirements of every client. The classes will use Stand Up Paddle boards (SUP) and Indo Boards, combined with traditional exercises, to give a new effective and unique workout experience. Lagoon Fitness aims to use the outside surroundings of the beach and the water whilst getting fit and having fun at the same time.
Harvey Dawkins, Owner of Lagoon Watersports commented: - ‘I am really excited about the programmes our fitness coach Lucy has developed. It is great to be able to combine the perfect venue of Hove Lagoon with water sports and land based activities. Combining these with the skills of a professional watersports instructor and fitness coach I feel we are to offer a new fun and exciting fitness package’.
Land-based fitness classes include Beach Fit, Watersports Ready, and Indo Board Classes whilst water-based SUP fitness classes include Cardio SUP, Strength SUP and Flexi SUP. Beginner SUP sessions, intermediate SUP clinics, one to one lessons and SUP river trips will also be run throughout the season. Classes are on drop in basis and limited to 10 per session, with prices starting from £10 per class for the land based fitness classes and from £15 for the SUP fitness classes. Various fitness and membership packages will be available soon, with the SUP Fitness Membership starting from £37.50 a month.
Lucy McCormick, RYA Intermediate Windsurf, System 2 Wakeboard and BSUPA level one SUP Instructor at Lagoon Watersports, will be heading up the fitness session. On top of her water sports qualifications Lucy is also an Indo Board Fitness Instructor and REPS Level 3 Personal Trainer.
The 2012 season at Lagoon Watersports will kick off on Friday 6th April (Good Friday). Visit the website for more information and details about Lagoon Fitness.
