Motivational Monday: Plogging

Plogging at the River-- We’re joining Natural Restorations for The Day After Easter Clean-Up. We will be PLOGGING! It’s the newest fitness craze that saves the Earth! Jogging, running or walking while picking up trash! Every once in a while, someone will yell out 20 SQUATS, 10 LUNGES, etc.! It’s a whole new kind of river party! If you have a sweatband bring it!  FREE! Show up at Phon D Sutton between 8 and 9am Monday. 

Sarah, a personal trainer and yoga instructor for 20 years, just recently returned from Sweden where she heard about Plogging! When she saw a post from Natural Restorations on Instagram she knew it would be the perfect opportunity to start the new fitness craze sweeping Europe picking up trash and working out!

Clean up the river and restore the environment while getting your sweat on. Your spirit and body will both be happier!

Natural Restorations was started to remove trash, graffiti and anything foreign to the environment from natural areas throughout the state of Arizona. It's very good for the body to combine running with squatting to lift trash. 
You often get a good stretch in too, while reaching for trash in strange places.

When we finish, we'll float down the river on Paddleboards picking up cans and debris along the way.

Motivational Monday: Desert Paddleboarding

The majority of people on the salt River are tubers are fisherman, but did you know you can paddleboard down the Salt River? 

Is paddle boarding hard?
It takes a little bit of balance to start most people figure out quickly.
If all else fails, you can use it like a kayak! 

You can also fish off of a paddleboard! I've had a fly fishing instructor come and teach a bunch of ladies how to fly fish & then we practice on the board! 
It's kind of fun to tell your husband or boyfriend you're going fishing with your friends!
