We visited Paddle Dog Adventures in Westhaven, a neighborhood in west Franklin. Located in the neighborhood is a small lake that makes the perfect backdrop for a Paddle Fit class.
These classes utilize a paddle board combined with a boot camp type workout. Classes are lead by Mandy Oakes and Amy Smith where you begin on land with a warm-up followed by the paddle fit experience.
See our interview with instructor Amy Smith where we talk about skill level needed to take the class and the fact that no one has ever fallen into the lake.
Below is a small sample from the class.
Classes are 1 hour and include both land and board strength and cardio intervals so sneakers are needed. You will also need Please a water bottle and a towel to dry your feet off. Currently, classes are held Mondays & Wednesdays at 9a and Thursdays at 7p. Cost: of the class is $20 which includes the board rental.
