Shake up your routine with aquatic fitness!

By Megan Price | Posted February 7, 2019 in Going Places,Lifeguard Job,Lifestyle

Are you looking to change up your workout routine?

You’ve come to the right place! You’ve probably made some health and fitness goals for the new year: exercise more often, eat a healthy balanced diet, get a full eight hours of rest… you know the drill.

By now you may be bored of your regular workout and considering giving up on your health and fitness goals. Don’t do it just yet! We know you can only run, bike, swim and complete the same exercises so many times. But here’s a way that’s fun and easy to freshen up your favorite workout, take it to the pool! Pool workouts are fun and highly effective. Aquatic workouts allow you to burn just as many calories as you do at the gym. Aquatic workouts allow you to experience a range of benefits like increased circulation, stamina, and strength, with less impact on your joints and muscles. Aquatic fitness is a great option if you are recently recovering from an injury.

Interested? Great! Let’s take a look at some of the popular aquatic fitness options:

Aqua Cycling
Your standard cycling class takes to the water! The added resistance of the water in which you are submerged is proven to challenge your muscles including those tiny hard to target areas. Aqua cycling burns just as much, if not more, calories  as traditional cycling or spin classes.

H20 Boot Camp
The crowd favorite High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) just reached new heights by jumping into the pool with H20 Bootcamp. Your favorite fast and effective calorie burner just got a twist with the same toning, strengthening, and cardio intervals just without all of the impact.

Aqua Zumba
Challenge your muscles with Aqua Zumba. The added resistance will make your favorite dance moves more difficult while effectively toning your muscles.

Aquatic Yoga
Taking your yoga poses into the water helps develop your strength, balance, and range of motion. While already a low impact form of exercise, with Aquatic Yoga your body is able to reach its optimal stretch while relaxing, toning, and renewing energy.
