Water aerobics and other aqua fitness classes are some of our most popular group exercise classes. They offer a great range of benefits, without many of the drawbacks of intense exercise classes. They’ll help you lose weight, get stronger and improve your fitness too, without putting much strain through your joints. This makes them great for people with mobility issues as the water supports the joints, allowing you to get stronger without putting yourself at risk of injury, as well as helping recover from injury.
THE BENEFITS OF AQUA AEROBICS & AQUA CLASSES
There are loads of benefits to giving aqua classes a go. Not only will it help you burn off extra calories, but it does it in a way that’s gentle on your joints. This means you won’t hurt as much afterwards and will also help with all sorts of other fitness targets. These include improving your flexibility and range of movement, as well as helping to fend off osteoporosis.
One of the key benefits of aqua classes is that they are accessible to everyone, irrespective of their fitness levels, confidence or swimming ability. For starters, you’ll be spending most of the time standing in the water, so swimming isn’t required and you can even use floats to help keep yourself steady if needs be. Furthermore, each class can be taken at your own pace, so regardless of your fitness levels, you can either really go for it or take it more gently until you’re up to speed.
Fun and Sociable
As well as giving you a fantastic workout, aqua classes are a great way to meet new people. Meanwhile, the exercises themselves are great fun and the instructors go to great pains to ensure everyone in the class has a great time.
Aqua Aerobics Decreases Heart Rate & Blood Pressure
In the water, your heart rate is around 10-15% less than it is out of it, due to the increase in pressure. As a result, you can do more exercise thanks to this lower heart rate, while it also reduces your blood pressure while exercising.
Great for Burning fat & Calories
Although the exercise may look gentle, aqua classes are actually among the most effective for burning calories and fat. Most people will burn between 400 and 500 calories during a typical session, depending on how intense you are being.
Aqua Aerobics Improves Muscle Tone, Strength and Stamina.
Every move is working against the resistance of the water, which is between 10 and 12 times thicker than air, You are, therefore, constantly challenging your body, improving muscle tone, strength and stamina.
Low Impact for Joints
Being in the water means that all your joints are supported much more than they would be on land. This means you’re far less likely to have to endure any joint pain compared to, pounding the pavements running. Meanwhile, this extra support also helps in the avoidance of osteoporosis in later life.
Increased Flexibility & Range of Movement
As well as helping you burn calories, lose weight, tone muscles and improve stamina, aqua classes can also help you become more flexible and improve your range of movement. This is, once again, thanks to the resistance offered by the water, helping strengthen your joints and the muscles around them without putting anything like as much stress through them.
