Stand Up Paddle Fun Beach Fitness & Paddle Challenge
Naish Team SUP rider Suzie Cooney to host event on Maui.
Looking for a way to burn off those holiday meals? Head on over to Kihei on Saturday, Dec. 3, and join Naish Team SUP (stand up paddle) rider and Maui fitness trainer Suzie Cooney for the SUP Fun Beach Fitness & Paddle Challenge. The event will takes place at Mai Poina Ole La'u Beach Park on South Kihei Road.
Bring your board and bring your "grrr," for the first-of-its-kind beach fitness and SUP challenge. This non-competitive, all-levels event will put you to the test from the sand to each buoy turn. Suzie will guide participants through new training techniques and participants can demo the new Naish 2012 SUP boards.
All levels of SUP experience are welcome in this free event. "There will also be awesome door prizes from our generous sponsors for participants and finishers," said Cooney. (You must be registered, participate and finish to be eligible.)
The participant capacity is 75, so arrive early to sign up. Need to rent a board for the event? Call the Naish Maui Pro Center at (808) 871-1500.
Cooney is a certified personal trainer on Maui and a professional SUP athlete sponsored by Naish. She has trained numerous professional athletes, has been featured in "Shape" magazine, and is the creator of the world's first and largest International Women's SUP Event, which was held in January 2010 at the Four Seasons Maui.
