SWELL turns 14 today! Born in Orange County, CA in 1999, SWELL set out to create an online source for the beach lifestyle – offering the very best from established surf brands, as well as a hand-picked selection of styles from up-and-coming surf and lifestyle brands. We’re celebrating 14 years of curating the the very best of surf and beach lifestyle goods with some surf, some savings, and snapshots from the SWELL community… (more…)
When the weather is ohhhh so sweet, the last place you want to be is in a gym, on a treadmill, trying not to notice the dude next to you who just happens to be wearing running shorts (yes, THOSE kind) and a sweater under his too tight tank top. Although people watching in a gym is always entertaining (especially if you are at Gold’s gym in Venice, it’s unreal), I’d rather think of a way to be get some cardio in the great outdoors…particularly at the beach. So, walk your dog, go for a barefoot run, surf, paddle, swim, dive, cruise around on your bike, or splash around in the waves for a bit. Just get out, get creative, and get motivated by the mixture of some fresh air and a little sweat.

Pull-ups, squats, sprints, cardio, yoga, lunges, push ups, stretching, core work, warming up … the stairmaster. There is some exercise out there that you hate doing. Well, here’s some even better news. It’s probably what you need to be doing. Exercises in the “I hate doing” category are usually there because, well…you are weak at it. I used to hate pull-ups, because I couldn’t do any. Now I can do a bunch, and I must admit, I definitely don’t mind them anymore. I hate stretching, becasue I’m extremely inflexible. So yeah. I need to definitely stretch more.
My advice? If you hate it, you should probably be doing that exercise until you don’t hate it anymore. It has some pretty good results.
