5 Ways to Stay Active in Surfside

The start of a new year is a great time to reboot and think about new goals and aspirations. Would you like to travel more? Perhaps try something new? Are you looking to stay active in 2018? If the answer is yes, then Surfside is the place! 

Though Surfside is often known as a destination for rest and relaxation, this Town has activities that will keep you fit and healthy, even if you’re here for just a few days. Here are five ways to stay active in Surfside in the new year. 

1. Go for a Walk/Run Along the Beach

Surfside is home to a mile of pristine beach featuring pure white sand, crystal clear water and beautiful vistas of sunrise and sunset. If you’re looking for a low-key, low-cost activity to keep you active, a walk or run along the beach is the answer. The beach path is the perfect way to see the sights and get a workout – take in the architecture, breathe the fresh sea air and feel the resistance benefits of exercising in the sand.

2. Bike Around Surfside

One of the easiest fitness activities you can do in Surfside is bike! As we outlined in an earlier blog about where to Bike Around Surfside, biking is an athletic activity that also lets you explore the neighborhood. Rent a Citibike for the day and burn calories at the same time!

4. Enroll in an Aqua Zumba Class

Are you ready to try a totally new workout? Aqua Zumba gives a fresh perspective to the addictive dance workout! A combination of Zumba philosophies with traditional aqua fitness, Aqua Zumba is a water-based workout that is a little bit of cardio, a little bit of dancing and a lot of fun! If you’re looking for a totally new way to get some exercise, be ready to splash, stretch, twist and even shout with other Aqua Zumba lovers at Surfside’s Community Center. There’s even an instructor with a worldwide following! 

Classes are held at the Surfside Community Center Pool and participation is available in 8-week packages, or participants can drop-in per class. You must register to attend.

6. Take a Beach Yoga Class 

If you’re already a fitness buff, we recommend trying Beach Yoga. Located right on the sand at the 95th Street beach, classes happen three days a week so you can keep your flow going while toning your muscles and improving balance. Join sun worshipers at sunrise on Mondays, sunset on Wednesdays or join the Power Vinyasa class on Saturday mornings  – all taught by experienced yogis. Don’t forget to bring your yoga mat!   Classes are $10 per class. Cancellations only happen if there is rain, thunder, or it is below 55 degrees. Follow updates on Instagram: @95thstreetbeachyoga
