SURF-INSPIRED GROUP FITNESS.

WHERE CONCRETE MEETS THE SAND.

STRENGTH. BALANCE. CARDIO.

#NOBADDAYS

My hair salon moved across the street last year and in it’s place came a new fitness center, City Surf. I have been eyeing it up for months and finally decided to get online and see what it was all about.

Here in Denver they offer a first week of unlimited classes for free. So, my friend, Nina and I signed up for one of the several different classes they had available:

  • BEACH BODY BOOTCAMP

    CARDIO-BASED CLASS DESIGNED TO MAKE YOU SWEAT AND BURN CALORIES.

  • BIG KAHUNA

There are 11 boards available and classes definitely fill up, so signing up online is a good idea. The studio was beautiful and clean and the instructors were all very nice and helpful.

The workout is always written on a whiteboard at the front of the room so you know what’s coming next and the instructors are great at demonstrating and modifying moves.  They also project old surf competitions on the wall all through the class.

We did a beach body bootcamp class and it was a perfect mixture of strength, cardio, and core. We did a lot of bodyweight exercises, but also incorporated resistance bands and sand belts.

I took another class a couple days later that was more focused on strength and balance. All in all it was super fun to try out for a few days and was definitely a full body workout.
