Burning Calories on a Bodyboard
Living two hours away from Myrtle Beach, bodyboarding is a hobby of mine.
Also commonly called boogie boarding, bodyboarding is like surfing but instead of standing you’re just lying across a board and waiting for a wave to break. It’s not hard, it just takes practice. The waves in the southeast aren’t the biggest, but you’re easily able to ride 100+ feet to the shore if you catch a wave just right on a bodyboard.
Bodyboarding is a lot more fun than walking on a treadmill on a Sunday afternoon.
I preach to my Biggest Loser team that I’d never stop going to the gym — it’s imperative to have a sound workout routine Monday through Friday that involves the gym and uses its various weight equipment, classes, and other resources. But don’t live in one. Get to the gym, get to work, and get out within an hour 4-5 days a week.
Then go bodyboarding, if that’s your thing. Just burn calories, and have fun.
