Water Exercise Makes Sense


                                                             Why is exercising in water better? Three factors play a role: water buoyancy, resistance,
                                                             and cooling effects. Together, these make exercising in water easier to accomplish,
                                                             much more beneficial, and less likely to result in stress or injury.

                                                                  •   Water buoyancy eliminates the normal pounding and jarring
                                                                    associated with aerobic movements.

                                                                  •   Water resistance – which is 12-14 times greater than on dry land –
                                                                    makes your workout more effective.
                                                                  •   Water also continuously cools the body, so there’s less chance of overheating.

                                                             Medical research shows that water’s stress-free and supportive environment can
                                                             also help heal, recover, and rehabilitate. Doctors often recommend hydrotherapy for

                                                             disease, and conditions associated with osteoarthritis. Water-based exercise can also help
