Living fit and healthy is a tricky game. In today’s day and age, there’s no shortage of information out there that can be pulled up in a Google search or taken off of a magazine cover with little regard to each audience member’s motivating factor. Some want to take their game to to the next level, while some want desperately to lose weight. Each requires a different focus, a different routine, and a different mindset.
But for pretty much every surfer, it can’t be denied that creating healthier habits, whether they are nutrition based or activity based, helps bring your surfing closer to its full potential.
