With 2015 now well and truly behind us, it’s time to get serious about 2016. The Christmas trees are coming down, we’re getting back to work, and no doubt the new years resolution on the top of many a list is to get fit (and burn off those holiday pounds) in 2016.
You could start jogging - that’s a tried and true way of getting fit. Or perhaps you could start taking a spin class, that’s a good idea too. But if you ask us, the best way to get active this year is to slip on a pair of MerFins and get mermaiding!
You might not have known this, but mermaid swim schools are popping up all over the globe, from Montreal, to Florida, to the Philippines! Whilst you might assume it’s all for fun and games, more and more people are taking to swimming in mermaid fins as a way to get fit and keep in shape – and with good reason!
Elite swimmers and divers practice swimming with monofins as a means of increasing core strength and stability. The undulating motion of the dolphin kick utilizes muscles in your abdominals, lower back, hips, and legs from your buttocks all the way down to your toes! What would you rather be doing, sweating it out in a pump class or gracefully swimming laps as a mermaid?
Ok, you might not be that graceful at first, but if you take it slow there is no reason you won’t be mermaiding with the best of them in due time.
But first things first - you’re going to need a mermaid fin of your own. It just so happens we sell them! We have the new Black Water Woman series MerFin which is perfect for this kind of use. To be completely transparent, it’s the same as the aqua and orange versions of the adult MerFin except it’s black, but we’ve found many of our customers prefer the black version for use in the lap lane as it looks more like a serious fitness product.
But don’t let that hold you back. You rock whatever MerFin suits your personality! All the Mahina MerFins are high performance and perfect for all kinds of use, from fantasy play to lap swimming. So how about you get started on that new years resolution and get mermaiding today!
