Use your Swimming Pool for Excercise

Water aerobics is the performance of aerobic exercise in fairly shallow water such as in a swimming pool. Done mostly vertically and without swimming typically in waist deep or deeper water, it is a type of resistant training.  Most water aerobics is in a group fitness class setting with a trained professional teaching for about an hour, but there is no reason you can't do water aerobics in smaller groups in your back yard. Different forms of water aerobics include: aqua Zumba, water yoga, aqua aerobics, and aqua jog.

Water aerobics focuses on cardiac training and adds the component of water resistance and buoyancy. Although heart rate does not increase as much as in land-based aerobics, the heart is working just as hard and underwater exercise actually pumps more blood to the heart. Exercising in the water is not only aerobic, but also strength-training oriented due to the water resistance. Moving your body through the water creates a resistance that will activate muscle groups.

Benefits: An obvious benefit to water exercise is the cooling effect of the water on the system. The average temperature around 78 degrees in a group fitness pool, this temperature will force the body to burn calories to stay at homeostasis while also maintaining a cool, comfortable atmosphere with less sweat noticeable to the participant.

Benefits for the Elderly: The mitigation of gravity makes water aerobics safe for individuals able to keep their heads out of water, including the elderly. Exercise in water can also prevent overheating through continuous cooling of the body. Older people are more prone to arthritis, osteoporosis, and weak joints therefore water aerobics is the safest form of exercise for these conditions. The water also provides a stable environment for elderly with less balance control and therefore prevents injury.
