An Indoor Surfing Workout in SoBe

None New Year’s resolutions.

Remember those...

Yeah, it’s okay, you don’t have to answer.

Anyway, here’s an excuse to try that whole gym thing again.

Oh, and this time, maybe bring a wetsuit.

Paddle out for SurfSET, an intense indoor workout that simulates surfing atop a landlocked longboard, available now at Crunch in South Beach.

Here’s the thing about surfing. It looks cool. Also, it’s kind of a great workout. Also also, it typically requires water. Typically.

See, some enterprising Californians figured out a way to bypass that whole ocean thing. Their solution: putting a custom-made board on top of some stability balls so that it feels like you’re actually riding a wave.

Okay, great, so now you can surf in a gym. Specifically, the Crunch in SoBe. Just show up for one of their twice-a-week classes (grab a guest pass if you’re not a member) and claim a board.

For the next 45 minutes, an instructor is going to show you some basic surfing moves (paddling, duck diving, shark kicks) and run you through a mini boot camp (yup, there’ll be sandbags). Then, when it’s time to wrap up, the lights will dim, ocean sounds will begin playing, and you’ll end with a bit of modified yoga.

Or, you know, a modified nap.
