Exercise On board?

Curious...how do most people stay fit when crusing for long periods of time?

I''ve heard people dropping anchor and going for a swim.
Are there other ways people have?

There always seems to be a shortage of space, so it doesnt seem feasable to bring wieghts and other exercise equipment.

Do people jury-rig something to keep in shape?

just curious. :O)

Yoga is wonderful...little space required but lots of good stretching!

Yoga...hmm...never would have thought of that. Yeah, you can''t beat the space involved, huh? :O)

I guess in that manner, something like Tai-Chi would work as well, right?

I wonder if there''s something for runners...if they''ve found something compatible they could do on-board.

Exercise On board?

I do yoga on board. To be frank, it is very hard to do under way. Even in comparatively flat water there is a tendancy for there to be enough motion that rather than move slowly in a pose the motion tends to cause you jerk into a position in a way that can over strain beyond where you would like to be. Of course it is extremely difficult to do any of the positions that require balance.

I would guess that some of the exercises that you do with the elastic bands would work...laying on your back with a band for each foot you can simulate riding a bike and that is working both legs in the same motion as biking or running...with the tension.
To do yoga that is working with balance is hard on a boat...but the yoga stretches that are concentrating on flexibility can be done just about anywhere. I like to do them on the bow while the sun is coming up.

Where there''s a will there''s a way!
