Are you tired of the same old routine workouts? Why not try something new. Swimming and aqua aerobics is a great solution, and can be a different way to burn off those calories. We asked our instructor, Dawn, about the benefits of aqua aerobics and why you should join a class near you.
“As water lessens the effects of gravity, you’re able to move your body through a wider range of motion, which improves flexibility.
Swimming or Aqua Aerobics puts less strain on your muscles, which is a massive benefit for those who are overweight or obese, elderly, have arthritis, joint pain, osteoporosis, or an injury that makes weight-bearing exercise difficult or painful. It is also an ideal form of exercise for pregnant women.
