Water Aerobics

Is Water Aerobics Right for Me?
Water aerobics is one of the most energizing forms of aerobics and can be enjoyed by everyone. Whether you are looking to kick start your fitness journey, increase flexibility and joint mobility, lose weight, or just have some fun, water aerobics is the exercise for you!

Many people refer to water aerobics as a "non-weight bearing exercise," because the water supports most of your weight rather than your hips, legs and feet. This relieves stress and resistance on the joints, allowing for greater flexibility and stamina than your body offers in exercises outside of the water.

Classes are held in waist-deep water so that you do not have to be able to swim to participate.

Doctors recommend water aerobics for patients with limited mobility due to injury, weight or disability, as well as for new moms and mommies to be! Please make sure to consult your doctor before beginning any type of exercise program as well as inform your instructor at the start of the first class.

What are the Benefits?

  1. Provides Buoyancy and Support:
    The water supports almost 80% of your weight, which in turn causes less strain and prevents injuries on your joints, back and torso.
  2. Improved Flexibility:
    When doing water aerobics, the joints can be moved easily and in a wide range of motion. This allows you to exercise with no joint pain.
  3. Helps Keep you Cool:
    Water aerobics is refreshing and helps keep your body cool, as well as lift your mood instantly.
  4. Quick Muscular Endurance:
    Due to water resistance, you will see a quicker build-up of toned and endured muscle mass.
  5. Burns Calories:
    Water aerobics helps you burn anywhere from 450 – 700 calories per hour!
  6. Improves Cardio Conditioning:
    During water aerobics your heart rate is maintained, which is beneficial to both the heart and lungs.
