Water is a refreshing and exhilarating medium for exercising in. Water Aerobics is very safe and enjoyable, providing the benefit and satisfaction of exercise, without the risk of injury. For the older, or less fit person who needs to exercise to keep healthy, it is the most effective and safe way to do it. Water Aerobics is ideal for all ages, and suitable for swimmers and non-swimmers alike.
Exercising in water is much kinder to the body, provided the depth is correct for the client. For example, if jumping in chest-high water, the compression forces to the spine, hips and knees when landing are virtually non-existent. It can be used either for support or as resistance, so that muscles can be made to work harder than on dry land, but without the risk of damage to the joints.
Clients wishing to push themselves a little harder, to train as opposed to keeping fit, will also benefit from Water Aerobics as the resistance can help provide a more intensive cardio vascular workout.
A Water Aerobics workout will involve the whole body. There are exercises for the heart and lungs, for the muscles to be strengthened and stretched, and for the joints to move through their entire possible range of movement.
After a session you will feel invigorated, clean, a little tired but not stiff and your body will be that little bit healthier!
Benefits of exercising in water can include improved blood circulation and lowering of blood pressure and heart rate, making it an ideal form of exercise during pregnancy.
