We Tried An Indoor Surfing Workout Class


– On my way here, I was like, I got this. I don’t got this. (playful music) – Today we’re going to be taking an indoor surfing class. – I’ve always wanted to surf
since I was a little kid. I was a big fan of Rocket Power. – Just the fact that it’s indoors, and not in the actual ocean, is quite alright with me. – I used to be really
athletic in high school, and even in college, I actually
worked out a little bit. – Two to three days a week I’ll work out, or at least that’s what I tell myself. – I have recently fallen out
of love with working out, and I’ve been trying to reignite my working out flame with classes. – I just wanna get a new skill set so I can have something
to do on the weekends, because I’m getting old, and I’m running out of things to do. – One side, get up, and now I’m standing up. – I’m ready. Let’s go do this. – We are currently walking
over to our surfing class. – Right. – You’re looking at
American’s best surfers. (Jade chuckles) – Thank you for coming in
to Surfset New York City. We do surf inspired fitness classes. So today we’re going to do a class that’s called The Blend Format, equal parts cardio, strength, and balance intervals. We like to focus on
working specific muscles and skills that you use
surfing in the ocean, but it’s not a learn to surf class, but what we can do it
work those similar muscles and skills that you use
to surf in the ocean, and also help you to prepare if you decide to take those skills out. – So for the class, is there anything in particular that we have to wear or not wear? – We’re gonna go barefoot today, like you’re going to the beach, so you get that good feel on the board just like you’re out on the water. – [Jade] Let’s do it. (Ashley laughs) (rock music) – [Aaron] In our first position. – Oh my god. (laughing) – We’re getting a feel for what we call our surf stance, okay? (clapping) – That was the warm up. I guess we got a little
bit more time left. – I think I would have
drowned a little while ago. – I’m really bad. – Wow, that was nice. – Oh, thank God. – This is a good test to see
what you need to work on, and for me that’s everything. – Oh yeah. – I might not look
stable, but I am stable. – [Jade] Graceful. (clapping) – [Ashley] Oh God. – [Jade] I’m just mirroring
you guys at this point. (clapping) – [Diana] Thank you. – That was awesome, thank you guys. – So encouraging. – [Jade] Yeah, you guys worked me out. Thank you, man. – The instructors are really encouraging, which is the biggest thing for me. I’m all about, I can’t really do this, but if you say it in the
right tone, I bet I can. – I loved it. I think it’s the closest
I’ll get to hitting a wave. – Surfset was awesome. Ten out of ten, would do it again. (rock music)
