Now that the weather is finally starting to fine up and the sun has come out of hiding after what felt like a very long and chilly winter, it’s time to tone up in preparation for summer! Rather than visiting the gym, you’ll find us hitting the pristine sand of WA’s beaches to workout (for free!) while soaking in some much needed Vitamin D!
Don’t forget to look after your skin and be sun smart when exercising outdoors. Throw some SPF 30 Sun Bum Spray into your beach bag and slap on your favourite New Era Australia cap before you head out into the sunshine.
Not sure where to start with a beach workout? Follow our handy guide and don’t forget to stock up on all of your activewear essentials at HyperLuxe!
You may not be able to surf (props if you can!) but there’s nothing stopping you from taking inspiration from the buff surfers hitting the waves at North Beach and Dunsborough!
Commence your surfer jumps by planking on the sand with your hands under your shoulders (as if you’re about to do a push up). Push up from the sand with your arms and jump into a squat with one leg in front of the other as if you’re about to ride a wave into shore. Don’t forget to engage your core and squeeze those glutes. Repeat for 20 seconds before taking a 10 second break.
It won’t take long for you to work up a serious sweat doing this move! Keep your cool wearing a cute crop and leggings combo like The Upside’s Wunderland Anna crop and matching midi pants, or P.E. Nation’s Strike Out crop with the Time Out leggings.
Put your fitness to the ultimate test with some beach sprints. More challenging than running on pavement and therefore better for burning calories, beach sprints aren’t for the faint of heart! Kick off your shoes and feel the sand between your toes as you run along the beach with the wind in your hair.
Mark your start and end points with a seashell or piece of seaweed and keep track of how many laps you do, or, let your Garmin Forerunner 35 GPS Watch keep count for you! With a built-in GPS to track how far, how fast and where you run, plus a handy heart rate monitor, the Garmin Forerunner 35 GPS Watch is perfect for daily runs, training and racing. View our extensive range of Garmin fitness trackers.
The only thing comparable to the crunch of fish and chips enjoyed on the beach while watching the sunset is the sense of satisfaction you feel after completing a set of ab crunches! Less painful than crunching on a hard surface, crunching on the sand will help get you closer to that dream six pack!
If you don’t like the feel of sand on your bare back, get your crunch on top of one of our lux Knotty Turkish Towels, or select from our huge range of singlets, including the Spiritual Gangster SG Varsity Chakra tank in clay with gold lettering.
