The Condado Plaza Hilton Debuts Puerto Rico’s Only SURFSET® Fitness
Iconic San Juan Resort on Both Condado Lagoon and Atlantic Ocean Launches Puerto Rico’s First On-Land Surfing Workouts
June 09, 2015
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Surf's up at The Condado Plaza Hilton as it introduces Puerto Rico's first SURFSET® surf-inspired fitness classes, available now exclusively at the San Juan hotel. Featuring a custom unstable surfboard, guests and groups at the hotel can now get on board for a one-of-a-kind workout that delivers the total body physical benefits of surfing.
Made popular on ABC's "Shark Tank," the classes combine the benefits of cardio, strength and balance training through different surfer motions such as paddling, "duck-diving" through waves and the core-engaging "pop-up" maneuver. SURFSET® brings one of the world's most athletic and fun sports to group fitness.
Set on the resort's picturesque lawn overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the resort exclusive surf-inspired workouts feature instruction by Diana Carrero, the only certified SURFSET® Fitness trainer and ambassador on the island.
Single sessions, private training and team building activities for groups are available. Hotel guests may purchase a single hour-long session for $30 per person. Private classes cost $65 per person.

About SURFSET Fitness
SURFSET Fitness was born from a desire to bring extreme sports into the fitness world for people with a sense of adventure who love to challenge themselves every day. Founder Mike Hartwick, a former Pro Hockey player, found that a surf session was much more physically intense and mentally engaging than the standard gym routine. He created the board and SURFSET® method to deliver the full body benefits of surfing to anyone, anywhere, any time of the year. Visit www.surfsetfitness.com for more information on SURFSET®.
