I found the same thing - when on board and sailing you use muscles you never knew you had.

While I do not own a boat so I am probally not the best person to mention this, however would Pilates exercises be an alternative? I do Palates in a realtively small space and they really loosen me up as well as strenghten the muscle and add flexibility. No equipment is needed except maybe a rollup exercise mat and some 3 lbs exercise weights for advanced pilates.

Just a thought.

As far as exercise at sea is concerned... sail more and walk around the boat more. The steady rythm of the sea works your muscles more than you think.

Hi there - my first post to these forums! I'm learning the art of sailing, and am a bit of an exercise buff. I've found that pilates and yoga on deck is very doable. You sometimes have to get creative and adjust your moves, but otherwise works well with just a mat. I use the Theraband that someone else had previously mentioned as well.

The cockpit is a great place for dips, push-ups and crunches. I have a friend who installed a pull-up bar on board as well. You can use the boat itself as your equipment.
