Get a Beach Body — Peggy’s SurfGirl Magazine Article

surf girl mag
I wrote the cover article on how to “Get a Beach Babe Body” — with exercises demonstrated by my good friend and fellow surfer Carolyn Ruiz!

We always say that the only thing better than surfing is surfing with your friends — and I’m so grateful for mine!

One night last week about seven of us paddled out (I can hear the groans now about bringing your own crowd …) but we were practically the only ones in the lineup.

Don’t you love it when you’re trading waves with your buddies, hooting for each other and claiming great rides?

Doesn’t get much better than that…

What do you think?!

Yoga for Surfers II: Fluid Power Voted Top Yoga Video!

Wow — check out this Yoga for Surfers review from http://isurf.com –  where Yoga for Surfers II: Fluid Power is voted the favorite out of 34 yoga/exercise DVDs!

Here’s just a snippet of what you’ll read:

“Why pick Yoga for Surfers II (YFS II) over the other three DVDs in the series, you ask? The staffers diligently, and (ahem) masterfully, followed all four of the yoga DVD series for four weeks and afterwards uninamously voted on reviewing the YFS II DVD as the overall best fit for all levels of surfers – despite the YFS 4 DVD being titled “board sports”. (In all honesty, two of the staffers were YFS followers, one having been following the training daily for over 3 years while the other performing 2 to 3 sessions a week over the last 2 years!)”

Thanks, iSurf! So glad to know that my YFS programs have had such a positive impact!
