Aqua aerobics

by Super User

We offer aqua aerobics which is the performance of aerobic exercise in water. Done mostly vertically and without swimming typically in waist deep water, it is a type of resistance training and is a form of aerobic exercise that requires water-immersed participants.

While similar to land aerobics, in that it focuses on cardiac training, water aerobics differs in that it adds the component of water resistance and buoyancy. Although heart rate does not increase as much as in land-based aerobics, the heart is working just as hard and underwater exercise actually pumps more blood to the heart.

Exercising in the water is not only aerobic, but also strength-training oriented due to the water resistance. Moving your body through the water creates a resistance that will activate muscle groups. Hydro aerobics is a form of an aerobic exercise that requires water-immersed participants.

Another positive aspect of water aerobics is that it is easy on the joints, and thus good for people with arthritis or other mobility problems. The low impact on joints also makes water aerobics is a good exercise choice for people who are overweight. Weight loss can be achieved via water aerobics as it easily burns calories.
