[Fitness] Sexy Surfer Body Workout

I believe that exercising is just as important as eating nutrient dense food if you want to have a healthy body. Excerising results in better sleep, more energy, beautiful skin, higher confidence levels, a stronger body, healthier digestion, better moods and an overall happier life. I also believe it is just as important to find exercises that you enjoy. You should be able to look forward to working out, not dread it. So I've decided to start sharing some of my favorite workouts in an attempt to help people find what works for them.

First up is the Sexy Surfer Body Workout designed by Amanda Russell. I love this workout because you can do it anywhere as they demonstrate in the video -they do the entire workout on a surfboard! It's fast, it's simple and it's fun! I also love that it's a full body workout with an emphasis on arms, shoulders, back and obliques; I'm as guilty as anyone when it comes to just doing a bunch of squats and lunges and no push-ups. Unfortunately, this isn't the type of video that you can workout alongside; they just demonstrate the different exercises. I found it worked best for me to watch the video and practice the different moves, then watch it again and write down the sequence so I could do the workout by myself. Below the video I've listed the exercises so you can jump right in and do it after watching the video. Happy exercising!

Sexy Surfer Body Workout
Chair Pose -10 Reps
One Leg Push-up to Downward Dog -10 Reps each
Jump Switch -10 Reps
Breast Stroke -20 reps
Right Leg Reptile -10 Reps
Front Crawl -20 Reps
Left Leg Reptile -10 Reps
Right Side Plank with Extended Arm -10 Reps
Hand Stand Kicks -8 Reps
Left Side Plank with Extended Arm -10 Reps

Repeat 3-4 times.

My arms were definitely shaking by the end, but it felt great! My favorite move is definitely the reptile.

What was your favorite move? Do you have a favorite workout?

Peace & Love,


  1. “ I believe that exercising is just as important as eating nutrient dense food" - This is correct since exercise plays a big role in burning unwanted fat and calories. Accompanying proper diet and regular physical exercise is a recipe for a good outcome. Just remember to have fun whilst doing a workout! :)

  2. Nice! Seeing the sun and the sea makes me realize that the worst of winter is, indeed, behind us. You seem to have had a really enjoyable time. I think surfing is one of the best ways to bond as a family, especially if you have teenagers. Not only are you spending time with them, they also gain confidence, as well as other positive traits from engaging in sports.
