I wanted to follow up on my previous post about fitness paddling to discuss some tips for making kayaking part of your daily routine. I feel that the biggest reason kayaking isn’t integrated into regular workouts is because the time it takes prep for a paddling outing but by streamlining the storage and launch processes, you can hopefully cut down the time it takes to get on the water.
Getting a good workout is important for a healthy lifestyle and something I try to do daily. I’ve been interested in ways to integrate paddling into my routine, but have found it difficult to do because I haven’t known exactly what kind of workout I get when I’m on a yak and the prep time/storage involved with using a boat.
When most people think of paddling a kayak, they imagine a peaceful morning setting composed of cool misty waters, lush vegetation along the shoreline and the soothing sounds of running water while others may have visions of a memorable family outing on a warm sunny afternoon. What many people don’t realize, or rather may not consider, is that they can utilize a kayak for a daily exercise routine.
