Gisele and Tom Stay Fit Paddleboarding

February 06, 2014 1 min read

Since Tom Brady's Patriots didn't make it into the Super Bowl this year, it seems the Bundchen-Brady family took a Bahamas vacation instead.  Their exercise of choice turned out to be paddle-boarding or stand up paddling (SUP for short).  They were photographed SUPing all around the beach by their rented home. article-0-1B02851C00000578-344_634x394 SUPing has become immensely popular especially in land locked states of late because there isn't a need for any waves.  While you can SUP in the ocean, most will prefer calm seas, the boards are especially suited for lakes as well.  It turns out that SUPing also offers a great workout. If you are paddling hard it is possible to burn anywhere from 800-1000 calories an hour.  Paddleboarding has even been argued to be more efficient than other paddling water sports such as kayaking, canoeing, or Hawaiian outrigger because of the sheer volume of muscles used.  SUPing engages much more core strength in order to keep the body balanced that traditional seated paddling. The amount of calories burned by SUPing depends on the speed and tempo of the paddling.  A light recreational speed or rhythm will burn around 225-300 calories.  As the speed increases so does the calorie count.  In fact Surfinok.com says that, "completing, for example, a 13 nautical mile SUP race against headwinds of 15-20MPH feels like running an entire marathon or finishing a 40k cycling time trial." Definitely a reason to try out a paddle-board on your next trip to the beach or the lake.
