All New MASTER Certification Program!


EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT!  This October, we are rolling out a Master Training program.  As a PIF Master Trainer, you will be able to run your OWN Paddle Into Fitness teacher trainings (SUP, SUP Yoga and SUP Fitness) through your company using our certification materials. You could also be selected to join the PIF traveling certification team and lead teacher trainings internationally! (***There will be a licensing fee for use of materials***)

We will cover presentation skills, different environments (beach, pools, marinas), teach backs, and mock trainings to get you prepared to run your OWN certifications successfully! The training will also certify you as a WPA Level 2 Instructor, which will allow you to certify students in WPA Level 1. There will be a SUP skills and water safety test before completion. To see more details on the Master Trainer criteria, click here!

If you are looking to get certified this fall, we are running another SUP, SUP Yoga, and SUP Fitness teacher training in San Diego. Spots are filling up, so sign up soon!


We hope everyone is enjoying a summer full of SUP! Feel free to share your paddle adventures and pics with us by email or on instagram by tagging us. (@paddlefitness #livelaughpaddle) We love to see where our PIF Ambassadors and fellow paddlers are floating around!

Featured Affiliate – Leilani Gibson

Born and raised in Hawaii, Leilani loves being on, in, and near water. Combining her knowledge as personal trainer with certifications from Corepower Yoga in both Vinyasa and Hot Yoga helps her create a fun and challenging experience on the water.

As a PSUPA, WPA, and Paddle into Fitness SUP instructor Leilani teaches introductory SUP lessons, yoga/fitness classes, and leads adventure tours around the beautiful waterways of the PNW. This summer she introduced her students to SUP barre; a challenging workout combining ballet barre and Pilates on the paddle board.

Leilani loves to inspire people to get outside, connect with nature, and live their healthiest lives. Her smile is contagious and sharing SUP stoke comes naturally to her. As a former triathlete, she developed a love for distance paddling and recently paddled the 100 miles from Portland to Astoria, Oregon. Even in the rainy PNW you’ll find Leilani paddling 365 days of the year!
