Working out in the water…… it’s not just for your grandmother anymore. That old and not particularly accurate image of elderly people splashing it up has given way to women and men of all ages using the pool to exercise. Aquafit is a “fitness class in a pool” and can benefit everyone!
Aquafit classes offer similar benefits to aerobic exercise on land. You can walk or run or exercise in the water to reduce blood pressure, elevate your pulse rate, strengthen your heart and reduce weight. The natural resistance of the water enables you to do strength work and build muscle. The buoyancy of the water reduces the stress on your joints, especially your spine, knees and hips, allowing you to increase your flexibility and range of motion while lessening the risk of injury. Aquafit exercises include movements that both stretch and relax the body.
