Two things we love: working out and the beach.
Today we had an amazing opportunity to put both of those things together plus ten of our girlfriends joined us! BeachFIT Long Island set up a great bootcamp workout. It was a private group training session down on the beach in Long Beach. Our instructor, Mike, led us through a total body circuit that included both strength and cardio exercises. If you haven’t tried BeachFIT, you definitely should! Their studio is located in Oceanside where they offer small group training classes such as: bootcamps, pilates, and a variety of TRX-based workouts. When the weather is warm they also do classes in the morning down on the beach. Check them out here!
Our workout started with an introduction to our stations:
- Medicine Ball Slams
- TRX Crunches
- Battle Ropes and Hurdle Jumps
- High Plank with Sand Bag Pulls
- Farmer’s Carry with Buckets of Sand
- Kettlebell Goblet Squats with an Upright Row
- Hopscotch Ladders
- TRX Rip Trainer Jump + Press
- TRX Rows
- TRX Pushups
We did a group warmup with jumping jacks, squats, and running among other things. Once our bodies were warm and ready to go, we paired up and picked a station to start. Forty-five seconds of work with about 15 seconds to switch stations. Mike and Christina really encouraged everyone throughout the entire circuit. It is so important to have a cheer squad when challenging yourself! Quick water break then Round 2 of the same exercise circuit. Definitely broke a sweat! We finished up the workout with more group activities including: lateral squat walks, broad jump burpees, wall sits (bonus med ball pass!), and one final sprint down to the water and back! We high fived and stretched it out.
Thank you so much to Mike and Christina for the amazing workout! You guys definitely challenged us and we loved every minute of it! We had such a great experience and can’t wait to come take a class in your studio.
