Tic Tac Toes #ROXYsandals DIY

Tic Tac Toe(s) #ROXYsandalsPlaying games on the beach between surf breaks and surf snacks is one of our favorite things to do in the summertime. We decided to start DIY’ing and came up with ‘Tic Tac Toes(s) in the sand #ROXYsandals’ and put our creativity to good use!

This DIY is super easy and well worth the 20 minutes it takes to make! All you need is a remnant piece of fabric (about the size of a pillow case or an old shirt), masking tape, paint, a straight edge, pencil, and some game pieces. We used some starfish and seashells in place of our X’s and O’s.

Roxy Outdoor Fitness: Take the Long Road

As the days draw out and get warmer, why not take the long road to the beach? Roxy ambassador and blogger Devon DeMint of ‘The Mermaid Chronicles” looks for diverse trails to bike because the various terrains help work a variety of muscles. Plus, surf spots and beaches that require an effort to get to are usually less crowded and lead to more quality time with Mother Nature.

Here’s how to prepare for taking the road less traveled:

1.    Wear layers.  I Always include a quick dry bikini, form fitting pants that won’t get caught in my bike chain, a tank top like the Perfectly Seamless Tank with built in ventilation, flexible boardshorts and a top with long sleeves just in case.

2.    Pack smart. Bring only what you think you’ll need and distribute the weight of these items evenly to balance out the load. Bring a wet bag to carry your sea-soaked suit after you get out of the ocean.

3.    Plan ahead. Know what to expect before you get there. Of course, Mother Nature likes to keep us on our toes us, but checking surf and weather forecasts before you go will help you know what you’re in for.

4.   Be resourceful and utilize the environment around you. Driftwood found on the beach makes for a great shelter or changing room!

5.    Don’t forget food, water and sunscreen! When I’m packing a snack, I love to bring something light and high in vitamins like kale chips.

Here’s a basic recipe you might want to try:

 

Kale Chips

Serves: 2

  • 1 bunch of kale, washed and dried well
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • A few pinches of Himalayan sea salt
  • Preheat oven to 300º F.
  • Tear large pieces of Kale off the center rib. Place the leaves in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and toss until coated.
  • Place the kale on 2 baking sheets. Arrange it in a single layer and sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until crisp. Place in a container you can easily seal and transport in your pack. Enjoy!

Roxy Outdoor Fitness: Exercise your appreciation for mother nature this Earth Day

#ROXYOutdoorFitness

Earth Day is on April 22nd, and we’d like to celebrate it by exercising in nature and caring for the earth the way it has taken care of us! Running sprints on the beach while picking up trash not only cleans the beaches, but it helps the sea life like pelicans and sandpipers have a cleaner, safer home. It’s not their fault there’s a hair clip and a lobster trap line on their dinner table.

#ROXYOutdoorFitness

#ROXYOutdoorFitness

#ROXYOutdoorFitness

Here’s a fun Earth minded workout routine:

Start by picking two trashcans on the beach that are at least 100 yards apart from one another. Sprint all out from one trashcan to the other. On the way back, do a casual jog, giving yourself time to recover while bending down to pick up any pieces of trash you see on your way. This will help the beach and your beach body. The squatting motion you adopt while picking up trash will help work practically every muscle and the sprints are a great cardio exercise that will benefit your heart and give you noticeable results in a shorter amount of time than long distance running would. Once you arrive back at the first trashcan, dump your trash. Repeat this at least five times until you are exhausted and the beach looks clean.

#ROXYOutdoorFitness

Once you’re done, cool off with a swim, do some cool down stretches and maybe add in a few crunches while lying in the sand, if you feel like taking on a full body workout.

Earth Day Beach Sprint Gear:

Roxy Outdoor Fitness Ambassador and blogger for The Mermaid Chronicles Devon DeMint likes to take on her Earth Day workout in form-fitting clothing like the Hot Competition Shorts and the Dawn Run Tee, because they won’t slow her down. If you’re planning on going for a swim, Devon recommends wearing a sports bra that can double as a bathing suit and is quick to dry.

Roxy Outdoor Fitness: Ace your workout with Gillian Gilbree’s SUP Fitness Tips!

Looking to find a fitness workout that you can stick with? Then get your paddle on! No matter what sport you’re into, or what level you are at, there is a modality of SUP that you can enjoy…surfing, whitewater, racing, yoga, downwind, or just exploring! The great thing about SUP is it can be done anywhere there’s water—lakes, oceans, rivers, marshes, or bays!

Being on an unstable surface is very effective for building better balance and coordination, andfires different muscle groups you may have never worked before (I commonly hear about sore foot muscles after teaching a beginner SUP lesson!).  The rotational movements target the obliques and spinal rotators, and with the correct paddle technique, you should feel your abs burning! The pulling motion from paddling helps develop the upper back and shoulder muscles, which is great cross training. There are different kinds of results you can achieve from the sport of SUP as well—sprints will help build speed, and long slow paddles can be great for fat metabolism and building endurance. At either intensity, you’re getting a fun and exciting cardio workout while experiencing nature!

Some of my favorite ways to use paddleboarding to stay fit are SUP surfing, yoga, and exploring the beautiful California coastline. The Roxy Outdoor Fitness Ace bikini is perfect for all three! It’s form fitting, and stays on while I’m pushing the limits on my board.

Check out the photos from Gillian Gibree‘s latest California adventure, and join her on her next adventure to Mexico! Gillian will be offering a training for future SUP yoga teachers next month on a Mexico Retreat April 28-May 1! The health benefits and simplicity of SUP and yoga make them the perfect match. SUP is the fastest growing sport in the world—what better way to learn something new than to learn from the best in beautiful Punta Mita, Mexico? Learn more here.
