Re: Fitness

I have a kayak for a dinghy. It gives you a pretty good workout. I also hike the cliffs at my favorite anchorage on the Chesapeake Bay which is Kiptopeke (during decent weather)

Then since my boat doesn't have a boarding ladder I have to do a pull up from the stern rail to board when the weather is warm enough to swim. You could do several as part of a workout (or use the dinghy which is too easy)

You can also scrub the bottom of your boat which includes diving and holding your breath in my case, but if you have a breathing apparatus you still get a workout...................just don't rub off all your ablative! (another workout awaits if you do)

On land, I do cycling, running, pushups, pull ups, and the gym, etc..

For cardio you may want to check out "seated exercise pedals" on Amazon. There are many different options based on budget and fitness level. I plan to get one if my cruising plans take off. I've also planned resistance bands for arms and legs. I'm still exploring abs and a replacement for my beloved yoga ball.
1 - Use the winch handles rather than the electric switch.

2 - Take the yoga ball.

3 - Get a folding bike for when you hit shore.
