Benefits of Beach Fitness
Barefoot in the Sand
Builds and strengthens the muscles in your feet differently than when in shoes,
on an uneven surface stabilizers in our feet engage and forcing different balance points
The sand acts as a wonderful natural resistance. It's obviously harder to walk or run on sand because of its density, movement when it shifts, and uneven levels. With extra resistance on our legs, they are forced to work harder, building muscle
The sand has less impact on your joints than pavement. This is great for preventing injury or causing any harsh impact on your joints like pavement can do over time.
