Now that summer is here you’re out of excuses to get outside and get some exercise, especially when you have options like this!
June of 2013 marked the start of the third season for Get Up Stand Up NY, a stand-up paddleboarding and fitness outfit run by Meaghan Shannon of Bellport, NY. Meaghan is a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist, a World Paddle Association Instructor, and a Certified PaddleFit Coach. This combination of certifications means that you get a lot more than just a paddleboard experience, with one of the favorites being a combo beach-training & paddleboarding session.
GUSU operates mainly out of two locations, Mother’s Beach in Bellport and Willetts Point Beach in West Islip. Meaghan offers both group and private lessons, personal and semi-private strength training, and a variety of unique paddleboard options including full-moon, destination, youth, and special event paddles, and even annual paddle and beach clean-ups to local beaches.
Pricing is available for those who need equipment or at a discounted rate for BYOB’ers (bring your own board), and trial sessions for first-timers are available for only $20. Be sure to visit the website for full pricing and schedule details, and hopefully we’ll see you on the water!
