Heck yeah… the CFW beach workouts are serious workouts that leave the most fit of us run into the ground.  They typically take the fastest participants over 30 minutes.  They are not a quick little workout we throw together just to get a little sun rays.  They are sand in your crack, salt water in your eyes burning, smoke sessions.  We figure if we’re going to go through the troubles of getting equipment to the beach and fighting for parking, we are going to put on a challenging workout that we all can appreciate!

But they’re only as tough as you make them and they are loads of fun.  Like everything we do, the beach workouts are scalable to any fitness level.  For those who feel comfortable, we swim.   We look forward to the rough days when getting in and out of the surf is a workout in and of itself!  But if you’re not comfy in ocean, we have alternate exercises.  We don’t want anyone to think there’s any pressure to swim.

If you’ve not, come on out and try the best outside workout in Wilmington.  Don’t worry, after a few showers, the sand washes out.

    So what did everyone think of last nights mobility seminar? What are some other topics you are interested in learning more about? If you want to learn more about mobility visit our blog at http://www.blog.activecarewilm.com where you can learn about the affects of high fructose corn syrup all the way to poor mechanics.
