Surf’s Up, Austin!
Fitness meets surfing is the name of the game at this S. Lamar boutique studio. Owner’s Joy and Andrew Heller are “stoked to bring the City Surf concept to Austin. City Surf is a group fitness concept utilizing Surfset Surfboards as seen on Shark Tank. Essentially, you have a surfboard on three stability balls that challenges the activator and stability muscles that are not found in traditional work out methods.”
Hard Work Pays Off
The 50 minute workouts will not only test your strength and endurance, but also your balance and stability. Each class was designed and created by the original City Surf family, and I’ll be honest, the classes are no joke.
They currently offer several class classes; CITY SURF and BUDDHA BOARD, PIPELINE, a unique take on the traditional Barre class and CITY SURF CIRCUITS, a rad interpretation of HIIT (high intensity interval training), RIP CORE and BEACH BODY BOOT CAMP so there is something for everyone.
The signature CITY SURF class focuses on cardio, balance, and strength training, incorporating classic surf moves like duck dives, surf push-ups, pop-ups, and carving with traditional power moves like squats, lunges, core work, and cardio.
During the BUDDHA BOARD class you’ll be challenged to fuse traditional vinyasa/power yoga with the classic CITY SURF moves listed above. If you think yoga is challenging on the mat, try it on a surfboard!
