Southern California is a play ground for sports enthusiasts and athletes, and those simply seeking leisurely fun, active events or activities. There are a range of outdoor locations where just about any sport or form of exercise can be performed, whether you just want to go for a stroll by the water in Mission Bay, or run along the boardwalk in Pacific Beach or Coronado, or if you prefer swimming there are plenty of bodies of water from the ocean to lakes and public swimming pools.
If you have a personal trainer, San Diego can be a particularly welcoming atmosphere to engage with your trainer in outdoors activities, instead of just sticking to an indoor, gym facility work out. If you enjoy running at beach or on the boardwalk, doing the same things with your San Diego personal fitness coach will make the workout that much more enjoyable. Plus, each day the sun is shining, whether you are a tourist in town or you live here, the great weather and outdoor attractions should always be enjoyed.
Besides more widely participated in fitness events or activities, a San Diego personal trainer might accompany their student for an extreme sports activity, such as paragliding, mountain biking, or surfing.
Specialized personal trainers in San Diego are becoming more popular as extreme sports enthusiasts increase in number and seek to improve their skills. Extreme mountain biking, for example, is an activity that does not have to take place on a mountain and there are many sites throughout San Diego where personal training can take place. Florida Canyon is near the Balboa Park area in town and has several hiking and biking trails where mountain bikers are welcome to explore and enjoy this full body, extreme workout. It is always recommended by a San Diego fitness coach to wear the proper gear when doing an extreme activity such as mountain biking, because it is not out of the ordinary for people to fall if they hit a rock.
As for surfing, this is considered an extreme sport because not everyone has the lung capacity nor cardiovascular stamina to paddle in the rough ocean, hold ones breath under water and then of course, actually catch a wave and surf. San Diego offers so many beaches along its coast where long board riders and short board riders can ride a variety of breaks. Reef breaks, beach breaks and point breaks are all accessible in different pats of town. Personal training San Diego surfers have been known to hire a San Diego fitness coach to help them improve their skills in the water and out. Several professional surfers, in addition to their specialized, extreme sport, often train on land as well.
