Getting your hair wet and having swimming skills are not required!

Exercise in the Water!

Exercise in the Water!
  Why Exercise?
  • Increase your cardiovascular endurance (the heart and lungs put forth more effort to meet the increased demand by the muscles for more oxygen
  • Decreases heart rate
  • Lowers cholesterol and blood pressure


  • Water helps cool the body during exercise - workouts in the water are refreshing
  • Exercise in the warm water eases muscle spasms and relaxes tight muscles
  • Increases blood circulation
  • Promotes more fluid joint motion

How Often Should You Exercise?

The American College of Sports Medicine suggest rhythmic, continuous exercise 3-5 days a week for 20 to 60 minutes - depending on the exercise.

  Regular aerobic exercise...
  • Increases fitness levels
  • Helps reduce stress
  • Increases energy throughout the day
  • Improves quality of sleep
  • Decreases appetite and anxiety
  • Improves focus and concentration
  • Supports weight loss and weight maintenance

Why Exercise in the Water?

  • Water cushions the impact, reducing stress on joints
  • Water is 12 times more resistant than air, allowing tripled strength gains over land aerobics
  • Heart rates are lower in the water (water helps cool the body) - this allows for optimal fat burning from muscles with less fatigue.
  • Water supports muscles - promoting more efficient toning
