Kayaking is the most fun way to lose weight

You probably have friends talking your ear off about the benefits and fast results that high-intensity interval training can yield. But, instead of getting stuck in a stuffy box throwing medicine balls and swinging kettle bells, get your butt in a kayak, and we’ll show you some REAL high-intensity interval training. Plus, you’ll be laughing, screaming, and cheering the whole way.

With all the indoor options available, sometimes we forget how much fun – and how challenging – it can be to take on the river rapids in a kayak. This type of physical activity is rewarding on so many levels. There will be tranquil moments when you can breathe the fresh air and take in the scenery, but then you’ll need to engage every muscle group to take on the upcoming Class II-V+ rapids.

You’re going to have so much fun on our kayaking trips that you won’t even realize how many calories you are burning.

One day and multiple days kayaking trips in Colorado

Okay, you want us to give you some numbers. Take a one-day kayaking trip, for instance. You can easily burn between 300-400 calories in an hour, and for a full day trip, you can probably burn up to 1600 calories!! So, if calorie counting is your thing, then it’s time you took the kayak out for a spin – or a float?!

The fresh air, scenery, and sounds of the rushing river will also help you de-stress, and if you need to get completely zen to feel you are getting the most out of your “workout,” add a little fly fishing to your trip.
