Water Aerobics

Water aerobics is not only a fun way to stay in shape but it also provides significant cardio and strength training benefits. We can all agree that fitting exercise into a busy schedule can be difficult, but engaging in a water aerobics class can give you the fitness credit you need in a quick and easy workout. Here are just a few of the health benefits from joining a water aerobics class.

Health Benefits

Strength training and aerobic exercise can provide major health benefits for your body, especially your heart. Water aerobics is a low impact exercise activity which means less stress on your joints and muscles. The low-impact, water aerobics programs are great for pregnant women and the elderly because the water takes the weight off of the legs and back making it more comfortable while obtaining the exercise a body needs.

By using the natural properties of water as resistance, you can burn calories and increase your heart rate. Your body is striving and creating new energy all while you are building a higher metabolism and healthier body. Over time, with regular exercise, this increase in heart rate can strengthen your heart. A stronger heart means more blood pumping through your body, which reduces your blood pressure and risks for heart disease.

Water Buoyancy

Water buoyancy reduces the “weight” of a person up to 90%, according to the American Council of Exercise. This equals less stress on joints and muscles and will less likely cause injury and muscle soreness like some higher impact out-of-water exercises might do. The water buoyancy in water aerobics is great for those with arthritic joints or those recovering from painful injuries. It also allows your heart to benefit from the exercise movements without the discomfort in joints like your knee and back.

When you combine water aerobics and a healthy diet to your traditional land exercise routine, you will see your overall health, attitude and energy increase. At Texas Swim Academy we are passionate about water aerobics and a healthy lifestyle!
