SUP Program

PDXstrength is proud to offer seasonal stand up paddle board classes. Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is low impact, a great workout, and gets you on the water enjoying nature.

Our SUP classes are not included in our PDXstrength monthly membership. Participants must be 18 years old, and know how to swim. Because class size is limited, cancellations must be made 24 hours prior to class.

If weather or river conditions are too unsafe to hold class, participants will be refunded or can use credit towards another class.

In order to participate in our SUP fitness classes, athletes must have prior SUP experience or be able to demonstrate understanding and use of fundamental movements from our introductory course.

Introductory Course

Our beginner series is a two hour class that’s not only going to give you a great workout, but also provide you the necessary skills and safety information to be able to do some pretty sweet stuff in our SUP fitness program. While stand up paddling might seem quite simple, many people do it incorrectly until taking one of our classes. Course covers the basics of SUP, equipment, water safety, stroke technique and turns. Course ends with an awesome workout, that will leave you craving your next SUP class! Price includes use of board, paddle, leash, whistle and life jacket. Cost is only $89 ( $59 with your own board and life jacket)

PDXstrength SUP Fitness

This full body 90 minute workout will combine paddling with strength and conditioning activities. Just like our PDXstrength strength and conditioning classes, each class is unique, fun and challenging for all levels. Intervals, battle of the paddle, relays, circuits, and balance challenges are just some of the fun that you will experience all summer long. Price includes  use of board, paddle, leash, whistle and life jacket. Our SUP fitness class requires graduation from our introductory course, or are for athletes that have prior experience with SUP. Cost is only $60 ( $35 with your own board and life jacket)

How to Sign up: To maximize everyone’s experience we appreciate that you sign up for classes online 24 hours prior to class start time. That way there will be an appropriate coach to student ratio,  help classes run smoothly so payment and waivers are taken care of, and we can prevent overcapacity during busy times.  We use the software Mindbody to register athletes and take payments.
