PaddleFit Certification

Paddlefit is a certification program recognized throughout the world in the paddleboard community.


Our number one Guiding Principle is to teach people how to paddle correctly first. When we accomplish that we will limit the number of injuries and lay out the foundation for our clients to carve out their SUP and fitness Path.
— Brody Welte, Founder PaddleFit

After a life changing job on the island of Kaua’i, Brody Welte combined his love for the outdoors, fitness and Stand Up Paddleboarding and created Stand Up Fitness. Stand Up Fitness was a retail, lesson and fitness business serving the Tampa Bay area. Stand Up Fitness achieved a lot of success, but Brody realized that his calling was introducing people to SUP and getting them on a fun and healthy path. Paddling alone is a killer workout, but what Brody found is when you combine paddling, progressive technique, on-land exercises and a healthy dose of consistency, the results were amazing (and his clients were having a blast). From this process PaddleFit was born. PaddleFit has rolled out certified Affiliates throughout the US and will continue to develop programming that will push you to achieve your desired goals. All while maintaining a level of fun that makes PaddleFit a part of your lifestyle and not just something you do a few days a week. 


As your PaddleFit coach barry can introduce you to the wonderful sport of Paddleboarding and help to work on your technique and fitness.
