Four Wellness Ideas for Beach Tourney Athletes

Taking care of yourself and implementing a wellness program during your daily routine is crucial, especially when competing in sporting events.

Staying hydrated, completing workouts and preparing mentally are things athletes need to consider when participating in a beach tournament.

Time is of the essence during an active week, so to get the most out of your fitness level, we created a list of four mental and physical wellness suggestions for athletes competing on the Alabama Gulf Coast and friends and family, too!

Top 4 Wellness Ideas for Athletes

Beach yoga in Orange Beach, AL

1. Pamper yourself at one of the many Gulf Shores and Orange Beach spas. Take time during your visit to help those tense muscles and improve stress associated with the physical demands of being an athlete. Rejuvenate muscles with a hot stone massage that will also improve your mental stress and the overall well-being of your entire body. EnrG-IV in Orange Beach provides relaxation and quick rehydration at their oxygen bar. 

2. Beach yoga is the perfect activity for stretching and soothing muscles before or after a competition, and we have miles of space for it. Need some guidance? Opt for private lessons on the beach or traditional classes indoors. Whether practiced as a beginner or an expert, yoga can help restore balance, strength, flexibility and more.

Walks on the beach in Orange Beach, AL

3. Nature and relaxing outdoors is a great way to clear your mind. Gulf State Park offers a variety of activities that provide downtime for your body and mind. Take a leisurely paddle through Lake Shelby or take in a breath of fresh air and natural scenery along the 28-mile Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail.

4. A peaceful walk on the beach or meditating during sunset are also wonderful ways to destress after pushing your body to its limits. Soak up the beauty of the area to recharge your senses.
