Why confine your circuit training to the studio when it’s infinitely more fun right next to the ocean? Squat, jump and lift, all while feeling the breeze and taking in the scenic views. You’ll want to be as light on your feet as possible, so lace up in well-cushioned shoes and minimalist sports attire and find that perfect spot for your workout!

Thought jogging on asphalt was tough? Think again. Sprinting on hot sand and under the blazing sun will test your tenacity and build plenty of endurance. If you’re gonna subject yourself to the elements, it’s best to bring along 1) A cap to help keep your head up 2) Ultra-breathable apparel so you don’t suffer a heat stroke 3) All-weather running shoes that stay snug from start to finish. Ready? Let’s go!

Tried your hand at all land-based activities and need a new challenge? Set your eyes on swim and surf as you make the sea your new home for sports. For starters, put aside your usual gym attire and slip on some boardshorts and rashguards as you get acquainted with the waters. Don’t forget to throw in some skincare products as well to block out the sun’s harmful rays.

Hang loose with a sports-inspired top and casual shorts that will wick the sweat away while showing everyone else that yes, you’ve hit your fitness goals for the day.
