Beach fitness

<b>Acrobatics</b><br>
<br>
<b>Names:</b> Ben Suvonnasupa, 20, left; Neal Cordova, 20<br>
<br>
<b>Benefits:</b> Increased muscle strength and power in lower body muscles, because of the dynamic nature of back flips and other stunts. Development of fast twitch muscle fibers. Good for balance training. Limited cardio benefits. Calories burned per hour (based on gymnastics): 280<br>
<br>
<b>Why the beach?:</b> Cordova: “This is the place where anybody who’s active can come and find something to entertain themselves, and where everybody can feed off each other’s energy, whether it’s people doing typical workouts or acrobats who do amazing stuff. This is like Disneyland.”<br>
