Paddleboarding has become one of the trendiest water sports everywhere especially as a workout routine amongst celebs like Taylor Swift, Charlize Theron, Olivia Wilde and Maria Menounos to name a few. Not only do you get to enjoy the water, but it’s a great way to get a great bikini body for the Summer. But – what happens when it rains or the water temperature gets too cool?? In the winter months, the waters can get quite chilly especially for us locals.
Well, that’s no longer a problem! I discovered SUPtheworkout, an indoor SUP studio in Coconut Grove where you can train to paddle and paddle to train all year round… snow, rain or shine. SUPtheworkout offers the ultimate total body strength and conditioning experience.

The workout itself is done in a group setting in interval form. While half of the participants are on the SUP ergometers paddling, the other half are doing functional training and body weight exercises. The SUP Ergometer machine is the only one of its kind and allows for better fitness and strength than a board on the water. It is equipped with an adjustable shaft/paddle that allows you to replicate your own SUP board set up.
Stand up paddling is an activity that everyone, regardless of their fitness level can enjoy. Stand up paddling can be used to enhance strength, endurance, muscular and cardiovascular fitness, as a cross training method and as a complete workout. Although there is practically no impact, a stand up paddling workout can vary from a relaxing paddle to a high intensity workout. You can train to paddle and paddle to train in under an hour while burning up to 600 calories.
“I created SUPtheworkout to show that SUP can be more than just a relaxing water sport; it can be a great workout. On a personal level, it was also the only workout I could do after being in a major car accident that prohibited me from competing and training like I used to,” said Melina Cherry, founder of SUPtheworkout. “There are also no constraints like weather conditions, owning or transporting a paddle board, or how much time you will be on the water.”
The studio offers SUP indoor training as well as outdoor on the water experiences and can accommodate up to 12 participants.
