Evening Water Aerobics Class

Consider the following if you are interested in taking a water aerobics class:

What water aerobics does for you: Water workouts give you moderate fitness. Because water is 12 to 14 times thicker than air and offers resistance in every direction, these classes can give you great muscle tone.

The exhaustion factor: Low. Most people won’t find water aerobics as hard as land-based aerobics. Although water is thicker and therefore harder to pull through than air, water really is a gentler medium. Still, look for an occasional water workout to get you off your feet and to give your muscles a balanced workout.

The coordination factor: Low. You’re forced to move so slowly that you have time to think about each move.

Who digs water aerobics: Anyone who likes the water, has injuries, or is in physical rehab. Water workouts are a terrific cross-training activity for runners, cyclists, and maniac aerobicizers. Water workouts are also great for pregnant women, older people, and people with multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, or other degenerative diseases because moving through the water is much easier on your body.
