Fitness retreats in Florida Paddleboarding on the bay is 100 feet from your back door!
Fitness retreats in Florida are a wonderful way to enjoy Florida’s beautiful weather, stunning scenery and largely outdoor lifestyle. If you’re planning a fitness retreat or hoping to participate in one, here are three can’t miss activities to enjoy during your stay!
1) Snorkeling: Florida’s temperate climate and the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean with its miles of beaches make it the perfect place to snorkel. See tropical fish and live coral along with undersea rock formations and the occasional barracuda. Snorkeling is a whole-body workout that strengthens muscle tone and coordination and burns approximately 230 calories per hour!
2) Paddleboarding: If you want to be on the water rather than in it than paddleboarding is the way to go! This unique activity allows you to either sit or stand on your paddleboard while exploring the stunning scenery and waterways Florida has to offer. Paddleboarding burns anywhere between 250 – 1,000 calories per hour depending on the speed with which you paddle. Don’t have the gear? Don’t worry! We recommend renting all the needed equipment from YOLO Watersports – conveniently located right on Captiva Island.
3) Biking: If you didn’t bring your own set of wheels you can still take advantage of the excellent biking trails inland or along Florida’s sunny coast with the plethora of bike rental options available. An hour of biking burns approximately 400 calories and is an excellent conditioning exercise that also increases balance and muscle control.
