Take Your Cardio Outside

Want to zap 200 calories in a half hour while sitting down? Hop in a kayak!

Pladdling works your body harder than a rowing machine....netting you a buffer back, flatter abs, and sexier shoulders. That's what the article said.

Thanks to MOC I'm paddling a red hurricane kayak that is perfect for long trips on the river.

We will paddle to Lake Austin Spa and back to the Low Water Bridge. Truly a beautiful strip of the Colorado River and a workout.

    I don't OWN a kayak (yet), but I was wondering if there was a place to rent some relatively inexpensive ones? Where's a good place to buy them from?
