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
Bear Cub Swim Club
The Lake of the Woods School Community Ed sponsored an elementary swim club for students in grades K-6. There was an awesome turnout of enthusiastic swimmers with 61 students taking part. During the swim club, swimmers were introduced to how a swim practice is run, stroke development of competitive strokes and good sportsman-
ship. Due to the COVID-19 situation, the swim club was unable to complete their schedule and did not get to hold their much anticipated swim meet. It was amazing to see how the swimmers improved each week. The Bear Cub swim club was coached by Penny Mio and Lisa Beckstrand, with additional help from Jennelle Lowes, Jeni Krause
and Sierra Castle.
