PaddleFit is a unique fitness system that combines land and water fitness to give you the ultimate workout! 

I’m excited to share that My Aloha Paddle Sports and Fitness and my great friend, Dana, are now offering PaddleFit 3 classes right here on Lake Norman

What is it Like?  I’ve heard it explained like this…. Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) meets boot camp!  You get to do both land and water fitness activities which targets your whole body, especially your core.

Do you have to know how to SUP?  Absolutley not!  You will take an assessment and get a customized program based on your own personal goals.

OK, so I’m a little behind!  With the holidays and a new puppy things have been kind of crazy, but I have to share with you this gem of a place that Spencer and I love going to!  It’s called Galway Hooker and every Tuesday night there is a comedy show upstairs at the Comedy Zone.  Just a few days ago Spencer wrote on his blog that laughter is the best medicine and he is so right!  Being the smarty pants he is he went on about all of the health benefits, but I’m going to just say…GO.  You will laugh you butt off and be so glad that you did.
