Personal Training In The Pool
One-to-One Personal Training in the Pool

Whether you are looking to improve your cardiovascular endurance or rehabilitate a chronic source of pain, working out in the water is the answer. Making aquatic exercise part of your training program allows you to work longer in your training zone and use more fat as a fuel source. Water’s buoyancy helps release you from the forces of gravity and lets your body move in ways that it could not move on land. Participants will enjoy the versatile workouts in the water – swimming knowledge is not required!

Take advantage of Personal Training in the pool and get a program that includes both resistance and aerobic training while reducing direct impact on the joints.

Aquatic Group Exercise


Why choose Water Exercise?

The water’s unique properties allow the pool to provide an environment for people of all abilities.  Buoyancy creates a reduced impact exercise alternative that is easy on the joints, while the water’s resistance challenges the muscles.  Water lends itself to a well-balanced workout that improves all major components of physical fitness — aerobic training, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility and body composition.

Water aerobics is often considered a low-intensity workout program appropriate only for pregnant women or the elderly. However, water aerobics actually offers multiple benefits for any fitness level. Water aerobics classes come in a variety of formats.

Low Impact
Exercising in water makes you feel about 90 percent lighter, reports the American Council on Exercise. When you jump or run in the water, your body does not experience the same impact that these moves cause on land. This makes water aerobics an ideal activity for those with arthritis, back problems, foot or leg injuries, and knee conditions. Pregnant women and the obese also benefit from the reduced impact.

More Discrete
If you find other group exercise classes intimidating because of complex choreography or windowed studios, the pool offers some discretion. Most moves are performed underwater so only you know if you missed a step.

Calorie Burn
Expect to burn between 400 and 500 calories per hour in a water aerobics class. The actual amount you burn will depend on your size, the intensity of your movements, as well as water temperature and depth. In general, faster movements incorporating the upper and lower body in deep water elicit the greatest calorie burn.

When exercising in water, you work against 12 times the resistance of air. Simply kicking and cupping the water helps contribute to muscle development, which translates into a higher metabolism and healthier body.
