Fast Fitness: Three Health Benefits of Kayaking

Rainy weekend ruining your outdoor workout? Not a problem! It's time to pick up a kayak or canoe and get some serious mental and physical benefits with water, as highlighted by Huffington Post: Have your cardio cake...and your strength one too. One hour can burn more than 350 calories while giving you the same core workout as the gym! Stress less. Being on the water can help put you in a meditative state, which is on top of the natural stress reduction benefits of the exercise itself. A (healthy) amount of sunshine. Of course, it's always important to lather on the sunscreen, but we could all use more outdoor time these days. Get out there and row! -Dan Mulcahey
