:: surfset on a roofdeck, hello august! ::

Surfset seems to be one of those things that everyone has heard of but not too many people have actually tried. I finally got on a board last week and I can tell you that it's a hard and wobbly workout, but so, SO fun.

It's an idea that is seriously straight out of Shark Tank, and uses a custom-made surfboard on an unstable surface. The result is a ton of exercises (many of which can be easily modified to the "surfer") that work the core simultaneously with each muscle group. And since I'm someone who gets bored with workouts pretty quickly, it's a great way to add something a little different and challenging into my normal yoga/pilates/spinning routine.

And if trying to keep myself upright on a surfboard wasn't hard enough, we had our lesson on the rooftop at the Revere Hotel. I'm calling extra calorie burn for the distraction. It was warm and windy and clear out, and I mentally saved the sights and the smells and the breeze as this summer slowly starts to creep into autumn (*weep*).

Astrid was our splendid instructor and we talked posture and food and Boston and LA and Ayurveda, and we took photos and WE DIDN'T FALL OFF THE SURFBOARD. Success all around.

There are still some classes left on the rooftop this summer! Slots (only 5 per class) are available for $25 and classes are held on Thursdays from 6:30-7:30pm and Saturdays from 10:30-11:30am. Click here for more info!
