City Surf Fitness Studio X The Fit Atlanta Event Recap!

The latest Fit Atlanta event was held at City Surf Fitness in Midtown. If you haven’t been, City Surf is exactly what you think it might be… a fitness class on a surfboard! I promise it’s not as crazy as it seems.

The event was also my first class and I honestly had no idea what to expect (although I had thoroughly stalked on IG). Now that I think about it, I’ve been introduced to quite a few studios through The Fit Atlanta.

When you walk into City Surf, you are greeted with an inviting beach-y smell and gorgeous palm leaf wall. Talk about #InstaGoals!

After mingling for a few, we headed into the studio.

The class incorporated exercises for the whole body all while engaging the core. It takes a lot of core strength to balance on the board while lunging and jumping around! We used a bungee cord for resistance training and weights for more of a push. Totally a full body workout.  

I will admit, I was nervous I was going to fall off of the board while doing a move and then embarrass myself. Luckily, I got the hang of the board super quick and everyone was so welcoming that if I did fall off it wouldn’t have been embarrassing at all!

Our instructor, Sara Ellen, was super engaging, funny and helpful. She often provided modifications for injuries and more advanced options of seasoned surfers. On a more personal note, I loved her playlist!

After the class there were 2 awesome vendors there for us to sample their product. Golda Kombucha brought growlers of their yummy buch for us to taste. Kea Beverages also brought their juices and a few cold brew coffees for us to take home! My favorite juice was carrot! Of course, there was a great swag bag and I can’t wait to get into those samples and coupons.

Oh, the best part was Amber McDonnell was there taking pics! Always love having fun fitness pics to post.

Hope you see you all at the next event!
