Paddle Boarding and Pregnancy – A Perfect Mix

It wasn't until pregnancy that I really discovered the benefits of standup paddle boarding (SUP) and became slightly addicted. Although it doesn't provide the same adrenaline filled rush that I'm used to with downhill skiing and biking, it compliments those activities nicely, provides a different perspective from the water, tones the arm muscles (a body part … Continue reading Paddle Boarding and Pregnancy – A Perfect Mix
