Swim Your Way to Better Health

By Donna Stark

Are you having trouble finding the motivation to exercise because you have lost interest in your usual fitness routine? Do you feel the need to switch things up a bit but aren't sure which direction to take? Do you want to improve your cardio but hate working out in the blistering heat? There are a ton of excuses you can use to avoid exercise but if you really want to make a change, there is a perfect solution that will address all of the above. This solution will increase your motivation and get you moving while keeping you totally cool in the process. It's aquatic exercise and you won't believe the difference it will make!

Benefits of Aquatic Exercise

Aquatic exercise is one of the safest, most effective, all-body workouts you can find. And contrary to popular belief, it's not just for people who have had years of swimming experience or who have reached a certain age group. Aquatic exercise is for everyone and it can be for you too! Take a look at how it can benefit your life.

  • Decreases pain and discomfort
  • Increases circulation
  • Aids in weight loss
  • Improves joint function
  • Eases muscle tightness
  • Increases strength
  • Improves range of motion, balance, and mobility
  • Increases endurance

Why Aquatic Exercise?

There are many reasons why people choose aquatic exercise, but one of the most popular is that it is easy on the body's joints. This makes aquatic exercise a great choice if you have joint problems, chronic back pain, are coming off an injury, or are pregnant. But make no mistake ... even though it is low-impact, that doesn't mean it can't be an intense workout. You are in control and you can make the workout as hard as you want by increasing the speed, doing more repetitions, or choosing harder movements.

So, are you ready to take the plunge? If so, it's time to take the first step. Start calling around to see which community pools offer classes and then pencil it on your calendar. Or watch some videos online and do the exercises yourself! Doing it on your own is perfectly fine but keep in mind that you may need to invest in some pool noodles, kick-boards, and foam weights designed for water to reach all your fitness goals. In addition to those few items, the only other thing you will need is a bottle of sunscreen. Don't forget that!

Swim Your Way to Better Health

Getting on the path to improved health and wellness is easy when you take a dip in the pool so throw on your suit and jump in! The water is waiting for you.
