Water Exercises FAQ

What about Water Exercise?

Water/Aquatic Exercise is a relaxing yet effective way to perform activities in an environment that is forgiving to the body.  All water activities are done in our enclosed, heated pool (86-88o).  Individual exercise programs can be established or participants can take part in organized water aerobics or lap swimming.


Who can participate in Water Exercise?

  • Water exercise is appropriate for most all fitness levels
  • Pregnant women who have been in some sort of exercise program prior to pregnancy can safely begin at any time
  • Pregnant women who have not been exercising should consult a physician prior to beginning a program

What are the Benefits of Water Exercise?

  • Decreases the force of gravity that stresses joints.
  • Increases circulation
  • Increases cardiovascular function
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Improve strength
  • Improve agility
  • Increase range of motion
  • Increased muscle tone
  • Improve balance
  • Decrease swelling


What if I Canít Swim?
 
Not to worry, activities can be performed in shallow water (4ft).  We also have floatation belts along with other floatation devices to keep you safe.
