Pool exercises keep your muscles under constant resistance, which helps make them stronger and burn more kilojoules. Here’s why Charmaine Gianni, Planet Fitness , says it’s great for everyone.
You don’t need fancy equipment to get started. Plus it’s an activity that the whole family can enjoy and reap benefits from together.
Whether you’re recovering from an injury or suffer from painful joints, working out in water is a great way to get your heart pumping and tone your muscles without causing more damage or pain.
No more feeling sweaty and sticky after workouts. In summer, you can beat the heat and still enjoy a workout.
Did you know that swimming gives you an all-body workout? For example, when you swim freestyle, you engage your glutes, abs, shoulders and back muscles.
Exercise releases the feel-good chemical dopamine, which reduces feelings of stress and anxiety, and you’ll find the smooth and rhythmic movements relaxing too.
