Our Coaching Philosophies

Founded in 2008, Paddle 2 Fitness has successfully delivered a polarising training program regime, better known as ’80/20′ training. We believe it is essential for our paddlers to build a strong aerobic system where the body learns to burn fat as the main energy source utilising The 180 Formula. We have thirty years on the water experience and follow research from leading experts in the field like Dr Phil Maffetone and Dr Stephen Seiler. Trust us and we will improve your performance.

Why Should I Do This?

Paddle 2 Fitness programs will help answer the question most paddlers ask, “what should I do today and how should I do it”. With a professionally written and balanced training program, we will calculate your current training paces (KM/H and HR) through our speed calculator and your DOB. This will give you three training levels to train at. Our daily training sessions make your life simple by giving you the number of sets, minutes and training levels. All you have to do is paddle.


DD Fees: There might be a 1.9% transaction fee added for bank charges and administration. International cards: 4%
