Workouts for the Sand

beach-exercise-female-1199607

Even though summer break is coming to an end, you don’t have to quit hitting the beach for your workouts. While cooler temperatures may keep you out of the water, the benefits of working out in the sand are still worth the trip to the shore. By combining a beautiful view with a sandy surface, you will be completing one enjoyable yet challenging workout. Working out in the sand is a great way to switch up your routine. When you work out on an unstable surface, even moves that you have easily completed in the past will seem much more difficult.

Sand Workout Tips
  1. Choose a flat area of loose, dry sand to complete your workout. Remember, instability is the goal. The wet, packed sand just won’t do.
  2. Ditch your shoes. It feels great and helps you strengthen and work your feet and lower legs in new ways.
  3. Bring a mat, but only for moves that cause you to lie down. If you don’t mind getting sandy, though, you’re good to go.
  4. Keep it simple. This isn’t the time to try that crazy new workout you saw on YouTube®. Stick with workouts that include moves you’re already comfortable completing.

    Discovered sand workouts last winter(2017). Since I love the cold and the volleyball area is vacant I can get in a great workout. I began with barefoot jogging for a few minutes. This year( Dec. 2018) did some slam balling (20lbs.) and jogging and had a fab workout! This works wonders for me since I am a full time care giver for my mom.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
