The Inertia

Surf. Workout. Do yoga. Stretch. Eat plants.

Sounds simple. And plenty of gurus aim to walk the walk on all fronts, but few have as much experience in each realm as professional surfer and plant-based nutrition expert, Tia Blanco. Blanco, a Beyond Meat ambassador, has been vegan for nearly a decade, and she’s also been making a valiant run to qualify for the World Tour while releasing inspired edits along the way. In that spirit, we’re excited to partner with Tia on her new release from Inspire Courses, Tia Blanco’s Guide to Fitness and Plant-Based Nutrition.

“If you’re someone out there who has been curious about eating plant-based and interested in the vegan lifestyle overall, this course should be helpful for you,” says Blanco. “Even if it’s one meal a day that gets you eating more plants or fruits and veggies, that’s the goal. Surfing, working out consistently, and eating plants is healthy. I hope to inspire people to take a step in the right direction when it comes to happiness and health.”

In 25 video chapters, Blanco shares her philosophy on fitness and nutrition as well as her favorite surf-specific beach workouts, core exercises, yoga moves, yoga flows, and plant-based recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Blanco also shares insights and inspiration from her experience as an entrepreneur.

“You want to be the best athlete you can possibly be, and by training frequently and staying committed you are giving yourself the best chance to be the best surfer you can be,” she says.

In this course, Tia shares six yoga lessons, including nine variations of her favorite surf-specific yoga moves and two yoga flows. She shares six video lessons for surf-focused beach and core workouts as well as a static stretch routine. She also shares seven of her favorite plant-based recipes.

There are 14 downloadable PDFs as well, so you can take Tia’s recipes, workouts, stretches, and yoga tips with you anywhere.

“If I can inspire someone to surf more, get more active, or do more yoga, that’s the goal.”
