For the first couple of years doing water aerobics I had problems with impact occasionally. I went to the point of doing the exercise in deep water with a flotation devise at times. I am not sure if it is due to water aerobics but in the last 3 or 4 years the impact has not been an issue. I think I did build up the muscles enough to prevent the aches and pains of a bad knee and osteoarthritis of the back.

That is a good idea. I have been just reducing the impact.

Hooray for water exercise! I'm glad discovered it and found some local classes. I'm an instructor--wanted to suggest that you check in with your instructor before or after class about the jumping. Jumping is great for some folks, not for others. She should be able to give you some good alternative moves. I'd suggest cross-country skiing, with shoulders under water, feet just barely skimming the floor.

Welcome to the team! Water exercises ARE great. There is a lot to learn here on Spark People. After 7 years here I would have to say tracking your food will be the biggest help.

Hello to all. I am thrilled to find this help with my water exercise. I am 67 and after 31 years retired teacher. My knees have little to no cartilage etc. I need to keep the muscles strong to be able to walk! I love doing my walk and exercise in the water. Visiting my daughter in Oregon I got hooked in the YMCA class. My NJ YMCA Has classes that seem to do a lot of jumping so I exercise using what I remember from Oregon. So glad to explore other routines to keep from getting bored. I go 3 days a week and need to work into a daily schedule to loose about 100lb. Happy to see all the help here. Have a good day! Pat
