We've all heard it around this time of year - new year, new you. We don't mean fad diets or a total makeover: we're talking about new hobbies and activities to get the most out of life. No matter the season, it's always a great idea to expand your horizons and try new things!
Hit The Green
From the first tee to the final putt on the 18th hole, golf is the ideal sport to capture your competitive spirit. Make your game your own; play a scramble with friends or a solo game, practice on the putting green and driving range, or even choose to walk the course to get your steps in. Plus, finishing a round with crisp, cold beers and savory pimento cheese at the clubhouse doesn’t sound like a bad idea! This is your year to perfect your long game or pick up a set of clubs and give golf a real shot. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just getting into the swing of things, check out our golf shop for apparel with technical features that won’t restrict your swing.
Is the stress of your 9-to-5 finally catching up to you? Or maybe you’re just looking to prioritize your health in the new year? We’re going to go out on a limb to suggest that you stretch your horizons and give yoga a try. Whether you want to visit the new trendy studio in town or enjoy a class in the comfort of your home, yoga can be flexible to meet your goals (pun intended). With varying levels and styles, you can work on balance, deep stretches, core work, or just simple meditation to add some zen in your life. Whether you're starting your day with hot yoga or ending your night with restorative yoga, even as little as 5 minutes of practice per day is proven to allow you to refocus and be more productive. Kickstart your mindfulness in our women’s activewear which is built with lightweight, wicking fabrics to take you seamlessly from downward dog to warrior pose.
In A Pickle
What do you get when you combine tennis, ping pong and badminton? Pickleball. Deemed America’s new favorite game, pickleball is played on sand, grass, or pavement, is fast-paced, and is the perfect activity to liven up the party for ages 8 to 80. Serve up style and play with a paddle from our exclusive collaboration with Recess Pickleball. Featuring coastal-inspired prints and highly acclaimed technical features, these paddles are great for all skill levels. But don’t just take our word for it - they were even featured in UsWeekly, Good Housekeeping & Yahoo! Entertainment. Grab some friends, get outside and serve up new skills!
Walk, Don’t Run
Did you know that 30 minutes of cardio a day can lead to improving not only physical health but mental health as well? Needless to say, you don’t have to train for a marathon to be active - if running isn’t your thing, laps around the block are a great way to get moving that’s as simple as it is effective. Find a walking buddy or go solo and turn up the tunes. If humans aren’t your preferred company, get your furry friend moving with you! Take your dog on a walk, or adventure to a local dog park to meet fellow four-legged friends. Regular activity is good for both of you. Check out our brrr° Collection to stay cool no matter the activity.
One With Nature
If walking or running isn’t challenging enough for you, try hiking! Find a walking trail or a popular hiking spot for views to add to your weekend bucket list. Take in the surroundings, filled with greenery, little critters, and the grand finale - like a waterfall or beautiful, scenic landscape. We recommend dressing in layers so you are prepared for the weather. Pack a performance quarter-zip to keep you dry and protected from the elements.
Branch out and take a class - bonus points for something you’ve never tried before! There’s something for everyone, from pottery to photography to paddleboarding. A group atmosphere is great for family nights, creative dates, or simply catching up with friends. Do a quick search on the internet or ask your friends for recommendations to learn about exciting activities offered near you.
Give back to the environment and community with sustainable practices & volunteer work. Whether it’s becoming involved in a beach cleanup, tutoring, fundraising, or something as simple as recycling, we believe it's important to devote your time to causes that support and invest in meaningful endeavors. As a brand with an affinity for our ocean and environment, we’re continually working to reduce our footprint by sourcing more sustainable, organic and recycled materials for our products.
