Fitness Clubs and Recreation Departments
If you are the program or fitness director for a health club or rec department, I would love to talk to you about the ways in which SherriKayaks Outdoor Programs can partner with your business. There are several ways that we can benefit your organization:
SUP and kayaking can be an exciting activities to make additional use of pool facilities during the fall, winter, and spring months. Recently, there has been a real surge in interest in new stand-up paddling (SUP) which provides a great core body workout . There is a great deal of interest among the general population in learning more about this sport as well as kayaking and having an opportunity to try both. We can bring boats and/or boards into your pool to do an introductory survey class designed to satisfy this curiosity. You can also schedule a relaxing recreational trip on a local waterway during the summer as a non-threatening way to try kayaking or SUP for the first time.
Kayaking, SUP, and canoeing are low-impact fitness activities that are perfect for people who might otherwise not be able to participate in more traditional fitness activities. Even for those who have no such restrictions, paddle sports are an enjoyable work-out that can provide cross training benefits. Paddling is a lifetime sport that can continue to be enjoyed by people well into their senior years.
Adventure racing is also becoming more popular, and you may have many members competing in these events. Participants often need help to improve their paddling and/or navigation skills in order to turn in faster race times. For more extreme adventure races, safety becomes a greater concern since many competitors are lacking in important self-rescue skills. We can offer these skill courses to your members outdoors on a lake or in your club pool.
I can also offer a variety of seminars and clinics relating to kayaking, canoeing, and camping that may be of interest to your members. Most of these presentations are 1-2 hours in length, but can be customized to fit your situation. I invite you to look over the list of topics under “Seminars & Clinics”.
Are you looking for a new activity that you can plan for your employees to foster team building, improve morale, or encourage a healthy lifestyle? A relaxing and enjoyable kayak trip on a local lake or river could be the perfect answer. Contact Sherri to discuss group size and what kind of trip would might best suit your needs.
A private kayaking trip on a local lake can be a fun and unique activity to celebrate a birthday or an upcoming wedding. You can end your paddle at a nearby restaurant or bar. We can handle groups up to 10. Call 2620895-2008 or email Sherri for more information and special requirements for children’s parties.
