Exercise on the Sand!

I absolutely love exercising on the sand and one of my favourite work outs is beach volleyball.  Yes this is not a new exercise for myself but for some of you this may be something you haven’t tried! Image

Activity Description: 

Sand Exercising: There is a lot of different activities you can do on sand. My favourites include beach volleyball, sand soccer, running, and a little bit of tanning!! 

What I did:  This week I played volleyball on the sand! This includes blocking, hitting, diving, running and serving.

What you need: A good pair of shades and a bunch of friends to enjoy this activity.

Difficulty: It was hard to determine how difficult this activity was because like a lot of other exercises it depends on what you put into it. I also find this exercise is around a 7 for me because there is not as much cardio but I do find the quick pace of the game to be a great workout.

What I liked/disliked: I love volleyball, it is one of my biggest passions! It can be challenging to get in but it is an amazing game to play with friends!

About kristineewald

Hello! My name is Kristine Ewald and I am incredibly excited and honored to be one of the first Canadian women selected as an Oakley Ambassador! My Challenge for this year is to try a different excerise/activity once a week and write about my experiences! I also want to carry on with my regular sports that I love! A little bit about me : I have had an amazing life so far! I have wonderful family and friends who have supported my many journeys. I absolutely love sports, hiking, volleyball (indoor and beach), and swimming, among many other activities. I also played middle for the UFV Cascades volleyball team and was chosen as a league all-star. Not only do I LOVE sports, but I have a passion for adventure and I love helping others. I traveled to Costa Rica to play volleyball and work in orphanages, and also to Thailand with my husband to hike, do yoga, ride elephants and, most importantly, help at an AIDS Orphanage. My biggest, hardest and proudest accomplishment yet was having my daughter Leighton! I currently work for my local Food Bank, but my ultimate goal is to encourage people with special needs to get active, especially within the school districts! I have been told that I am stubborn, adventurous, hard working, fun, sensitive and maybe a bit crazy. I love Oakley because they are passionate about encouraging and supporting women to perform beautifully and to live a healthy and active lifestyle. They also make amazing products that encourage this healthy lifestyle through amazing performance while still looking absolutely beautiful! I hope to do the same by challenging myself and other women to perform beautifully by pushing themselves, to live a healthy and active lifestyle and step out of their comfort zones!
