FITNESS

  The benefits of working out aerobically in the water are numerous. One of the best features of water aerobics is the lack of stress placed on the joints due to the buoyancy of the water. This feature allows many who are injured or overweight to exercise in a way that they could not on land. Working out in the water is also beneficial in improving muscle tone and flexibility for those with arthritis or osteoporosis. Water aerobics is also a comfortable way to work out during hot weather.  

 There are a multitude of specific exercises that can be performed in the water. You can walk, jog, run, kick and jump to get started. We have a wonderful underwater treadmill that assists you in this regard. The side of the pool provides a perfect area for warm-up and cool-down stretches. For variety in exercises, try jumping jacks, kick-boxing moves and knee lifts. Work the upper body by remembering to pump your arms and doing specific exercises, such as pushing down on kickboards or lifting water barbells. In general, perform exercises in chest-high water.
