Over the years, our Aqua Fitness classes have remained a popular spot for scores of happy fans to gather for a great workout. And with good reason: they’re fun, they’re full of energy, and they work just about every muscle in your body! Similarly, many members enjoy using our pools for water walking or jogging: ensuring them an aquatic workout that’s refreshing, revitalizing, and strengthening, all at the same time.

Below, we’ve shared three reasons why Aqua Fitness makes a great all-around workout, with plenty of serious benefits for people at any age or stage of life. You may be inspired to begin incorporating a class or two into your regular routine!

1. Combine a strength and cardio session in less than one hour. As you participate in your Aqua Fitness workout, your muscles are working against the water’s natural resistance, building your strength, increasing your circulation, and raising your heart rate to the workout zone, all while putting less strain on your joints and your heart. Another plus: during the warmer summer days, you’re less likely to overheat or overexert yourself, thanks to the moderate temperature of the pool.

2. Achieve high-impact results with a low-impact workout. Because of the water’s buoyancy, you can achieve a greater range of motion than you might in a dry-land workout. This makes Aqua Fitness workouts a great solution if you’re experiencing joint or balance issues, or if you’re interested in an active-recovery workout session that keeps you moving without placing further strain on your muscles and joints. 

3. Refresh your mindset. Our Aqua Fitness classes are more than just a workout… they’re a party with lively music, a committed and supportive community, and plenty of smiles and laughter! You’re sure to finish your workout in an upbeat frame of mind. Are solo workouts more your thing? Head to the pool for some water walking or jogging, and use the time to gently work your muscles, tune in to your body’s rhythm and movement, and release the stresses of the day. A twenty to forty-five minute session should do the trick.
