Description
What is a Water Workout?

People form all walks of life – fitness enthusiasts, athletes, professional, recreational, older adults, people with injuries or health issues and people who just want to have fun are discovering that something very special happens when you work out in water. IT WORKS!

A water workout moves your body through multidirectional resistance, while minimising joint stress and reducing the risk of injury, in an environment that keeps you cool.

Researchers have provided clear evidence over the past 10 years that claim water workouts produce health and fitness benefits while burning MORE CALORIES IN LESS TIME!


Why Workout in Water?

Water adds 12-14 percent more resistance than land, so every move you make in water improves strength and increases metabolism (the rate you burn calories, even during resting).

Water provides multidirectional resistance which means your muscle pairs work in balance during the same movement.
Water cushions your body and allows you to perform movements that would be difficult on land.
Water regulates your temperature and enables your heart rate to stay low while you work at intensity.
Water fitness participation has positive benefits for the following health challenges:
- Arthritis
- MS
- Back/Knee pain or rehabilitation
- Diabetes
- Fibromyalgia
- Pre/postnatal Conditions
- Cardiac Conditions
