Everybody loves a good inspirational story, especially when it involves SUP. Congratulations to Dyllan for getting out there and making a change.
In case you needed any reminding that stand up paddling is an amazing workout, take a look at this guy’s inspiring body transformation.
Two years ago, Dyllan Constable from Australia had never set foot on a paddle board. He was out of shape, overweight and had zero paddling experience. Fast forward 24 months and Dyllan is not only in amazing shape, he’s also mighty fast on a race board.
Thanks to the regular training sessions with his local SUP club, the Sunshine Coast paddler has lost 14kgs (30 pounds) while packing on the muscles — Dyllan’s body fat has dropped form 22% right down to about 8%.
I met Dyllan for the first time up at the Noosa Festival of Surfing last week (where he finished top 10 against a very solid field I might add). He seemed like just another one of the dozens of local guys up there who’ve spent their whole life in the ocean paddling and surfing; I never would have guessed he’d only been on the water for two years.
A few days later I saw the photos above on Instagram, so I messaged Dyllan and asked him for some insights into his SUP body transformation.
