Run, Paddle, Stretch! Girls’ Fitness Day Out!

ROXYs global outdoor fitness tour

It’s the ultimate girls’ fitness day out! Around 1300 women are expected to descend on beautiful Rainbow Bay Beach at Coolangatta for the ROXY Fitness event on Saturday March 12 – amping up all the excitement of the 2016 QUIKSILVER and ROXY Pros.

Geared towards participation, friendship and fun for women of all backgrounds and fitness levels, Roxy is inviting participants to run, stand-up paddleboard and stretch, with the beach as their backdrop.

Roxy ambassador and six-time world surfing champ Steph Gilmore will be saying ‘namaste’ in style, wearing pieces from the latest Roxy Fitness range and being on the turf to inspire participants.ROXYs global outdoor fitness tour steph gilmore 2

ROXY teamriders Rosy Hodge, Lisa Andersen, Kelia Moniz, Monyca Eleogram, Alyssa Lock and Bronte Macaulay will also be on the sand and in the surf for the epic day of fitness and fun.

So what can you expect? Well, with Rainbow Bay Beach as your very own outdoor studio and the sea as your soundtrack, you can kick off the day with a stretch and flow with ROXY instructor Crystal O’Rourke.

After warming up with your best downward dog, how about dusting the sand off your toes and joining a scenic 5km run along the track from Rainbow Bay Beach, looping around at Kirra? Or, perhaps you’d prefer to hit the water for the last leg of the event with a 1km stand-up paddle race at Coolangatta Beach? Take your pick – or join in all three!ROXYs global outdoor fitness tour 1300 women

If your fitness levels are a little rusty, don’t panic! For those who want to brush up on their skills, beginner stand-up paddle boarding lessons will be held from 12.30pm – 4.30pm. Lessons will run for one hour of awesomeness for just $5.

And remember, the early bird catches the wave, err, worm. Arrive early to pick up your #ROXYfitness packs on the day, or if you’re super organised, collect it prior to the event.

Packs include a running BIB, cap, rashie, yoga mat, and a light breakfast card supplied by Blue Dinosaur Paleo Bars, and H2Coco. Pop-up tent wardrobe optional – get race ready by visiting the ROXY retail tent on site!ROXYs global outdoor fitness tour steph gilmore
