The Benefits Of Aqua Workouts

 

Besides it being fun Aqua Workouts add benefits not found in our usual routine. Water Workouts offer 12 times the resistance as land workouts and you don’t feel it. It is like being engulfed in weights which make it so much more beneficial and intense. I am sure as a child you have tried to run in water. It was difficult but it didn’t hurt.

You don’t feel gravity as much under water so you have more range of movement which dramatically enhances Flexibility. It is low-impact and easier on your joints, which lessens your chances of injury and strain. The water makes you feel like you aren’t working at all and what’s more fun than that plus it cools you, feels infinitely more relaxing.
