The Fitness Onboard Certification (FOC) is a Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) fitness program designed by fitness professionals. Developed to bridge the gap between the sport of SUP and traditional fitness programs, the FOC will provide instructors the tools to achieve a safe and effective workout for their clients.
The main focus of the FOC is to grow the sport of SUP by teaching SUP and fitness enthusiasts to be great SUP fitness instructors. There has been a recent influx of group fitness classes on paddleboards, but few have instructors who are trained in both SUP fundamentals and exercise physiology.
At Fitness Onboard, we strongly believe that all training programs for SUP fitness instructors should be based on education and knowledge of the human body. The core emphasis for FOC instructors is to better the lives of people in their communities by providing quality fitness programs through proper technique, exercise form and class execution.
