“Water exercise can encompass all of the components of fitness: cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength and endurance, and flexibility. And, when done regularly, water exercise can help reduce body fat. Water works your heart – Aerobic workouts in the pool are perfect for those who find the same movements on land too jarring or painful: running, striding, kicking, leaping and even dancing. Water adds resistance -The resistance of water is perfect for a strength-training workout – instead of weights, the water itself provides the resistance.”
