The perfect, year round activity to tone your body and maintain your youthful look while achieving a healthier heart! Go ahead, take the plunge, and join a local aquatics class. You won’t regret it. Building lean muscle is the key to keeping your body in shape and in looking younger. Starting at age 30, we lose half a pound of body muscle per year. With less muscle, we in turn burn fewer calories, making it easier to put on weight. Even if you are one of the lucky ones, who has maintained a healthy weight, chances are you have lost muscle and replaced it with fat. Working out with the right exercises, can reverse this process and aqua aerobic exercises are a perfect choice!
Water Aerobic Exercises
Body–toning and gaining lean muscle are achieved most effectively by resistance training. To most, this means lifting weights. Many people hesitate when it comes to weight lifting for fear of injuring themselves by not doing the exercise correctly or because of preexisting conditions. There are no such fears with water aerobic exercises – working out in the water allows you to push against the resistance of the waters density and do so without the strains of actually lifting the weights.
