If you’re looking, high and low, for a low-impact workout that is varying in intensity and fun fitness pool exercises then water aerobics is for you! Aerobic exercises are a phenomenal way of getting in shape while still enjoying the social aspect of working out in a class.

Aqua aerobics classes are a superb way of mixing up a traditional gym workout with the amazing benefits of water. It just takes a few aqua aerobics sessions and you’ll see a massive difference in your overall fitness levels.

Also termed as water aerobics or sometimes waterobics, the usual classes will involve all the exercises which you would expect in a ‘dry’ class. However, there are added bonuses when you exercise in water.

Improving Your Heart Rate

Regularly taking part in water aerobics or water exercise classes can assist with improving heart health as well as cardiovascular strength. The water’s pressure acts as your best friend in the pool and assists with  circulating the blood in your body more effectively. As your heart continues to beat and pump away with less strain and pressure over time, effectively you lower your risk of heart disease. Water exercises have even been shown to help lower high blood pressure.

Mental And Physical Wellness

he natural resistance of water has the effect of increasing strength while – at the same time – making sure that you are kept cool and comfortable. Only 150 minutes of a pool workout per week may help to decrease your risk of chronic illness.

Water aerobics may improve your cardiovascular and respiratory system in the same ways as cycling or running. Water is roughly 800 times denser as opposed to air, which means that it offers about 12 times more resistance. That means the moves you do in the pool can work your entire body, particularly your arms, legs, shoulders, and core.

Toning Muscles And Burning Calories

Exercising in the water is a terrific way to burn calories as well as to better tone your muscles. As water is thicker than air, and is more resistant, our bodies and muscles must work harder so ensuring more rounded and fuller workouts.

Confidence Booster

Pool exercise is able to boost your confidence if you are overwhelmed by conventional exercise routines. In the water, you are largely submerged, so no one is able to see if you get the moves wrong. If you are a beginner at water aerobics, you will be able to build a level of fitness which you can then carry over in order to feel more confident when you’re exercising on land.

Water is naturally reassuring. If you miss your footing on land, gravity will take over and then you will most likely fall and hurt yourself. In water there is no necessity to worry about falling as the water will not give you the opportunity to. It will support you during all of your exercises.
