Paddlefit comes to New Zealand!

Welcome to PaddleFit from Encounter Creative on Vimeo.
PaddleFit Founder and Coach Brody Welte is heading to New Zealand and will be running an Instructor Training Certification Course here from 10-13 November!

PaddleFit combines outdoor fitness with stand up paddle training and techniques. Their goal is to provide you with a system that helps you achieve your fitness goals, improve your technique and guide you on your path to a healthy lifestyle. 

A recent Boarders Magazine article sums it up nicely:

Within the paddleboarding industry Brody Welte has been the foundation for fitness, from training programs to daily classes to a national and now worldwide SUP certification course called PaddleFit.  He has created a much needed foundation for the sport and a direction that is focused on teaching people how to paddle and a three level certification program for coaches to do the same.  "When people think of fitness they think of push ups on the board and that’s not what we are” says Brody.  "The number one incentive is teaching people how to paddle and the foundations of how to paddle.  If people are paddling right they will be less prone to injury.”

The PaddleFit program places emphasis on paddle progression and how to teach the proper technique.  There are three levels to the PaddleFit certification programs:

Level 1:  Water safety and rescue techniques

Level 2:  breaking down the stroke, teaching the fundamentals, basic training concepts, how to do an assessment

Level 3:  Advanced technique and advanced fitness concepts
