Water Exercise

We use hand weight and resistance noodles for toning.  We also do lite cardio as well.

Water exercise facts:

  • Your body is supported-making exercises easier and less painful while you’re performing movements.
  • The buoyancy provided by the water helps to protect your joints from the shocking impact usually associated with exercising on land.
  • Resistance of the water against all your motions resulting in high workout intensities as compared to land exercises.
  • A massaging effect is created when your muscles are surrounded by water.
  • Water provides 12 percent more resistance than movements on land-without the gravitational stress and pain. Water exercise is adaptable to everyone’s desires, needs and abilities.
  • Non-swimmers can safely participate.
  • Water visually shields your body-for those participants feeling uncomfortable or awkward in normal exercise environments.
  • High calorie burning during and after a workout.
  • Your heart rate is slower making water exercise beneficial for pregnancy, obese and heart disease participants.
  • Renews your energy level as it releases your stress and tension
  • Water exercise is wonderful for participants with arthritis, back or other joint problems
