  • How do you calculate fitness points when walking in water and then again in an aqua track - against a current?
  • I first did water aerobics when my friend invited me to her gym 10yrs ago. didn't like it! Fast forward, 6yrs and because of a chronic ankle runnning injury my physical therapist prescribed water aerobics. I decided to go to the YMCA instead! They know about water aerobics! I do deep water aerobics/also known as Tabata 4x a week! helps my back too! I have a detachable swimming skirt to put on my bathing suit as well for modesty :D
  • I love water aerobics but I don't have access to a pool until summer
  • I have been trying to swim more as I live less than a Km from the beach. Biggest issue I have is watching the tide charts... low tide is only knee deep, high tide is almost chest deep. Can't do a lot knee deep ha ha
  • I went to a friends yesterday and did a lot of these suggested exercise. We ended up exercising an hour straight! Definitely going to use these moves again,
  • I L.O.V.E. being in the water. I grew up swimming, playing water polo and now I play underwater hockey. It is great! But it takes more time to burn the same amount of calories by swimming than hopping on the treadmill at home. So I only play underwater hockey once a week. Running and body weight strengthening exercise the rest of the week.
  • great ideas. I can't wait to hit the pool today!
  • I can't swim but I love getting in the water. It's a shame I don't use my apartment year round pool. I just hate going by myself.
  • I need to join a water exercise class, it sounds great especially for the hot summer ahead.
  • I would love to exercise in a pool, but I don't have access to a pool. The fitness center that does have a pool charges an arm and a leg, and the community center close to my house has pool hours that don't work with my schedule. Have to stick to being a landlubber.
  • About the only exercise I can do regularly due to joint and muscle pain. LOVE it! Only thing that would make it better would be salt water instead of chlorine.
  • Walking laps in chest-deep water (1 forward, 1 backward) was the first real exercise I could manage after both knee replacements. It strengthens muscles both front and back while supporting body weight. I still do 10 minutes as a warmup for lap swimming.

    I discovered deep water aerobics this summer and love it. I take two classes a week in the evening under the moon at the community aquatic center at an amazing low cost of $3 a lesson. As the weather cools, I hope to stick with it. We're talking central California winters, not Michigan, after all. There are people of all ages and abilities in the class, working at their own level. Even a few men!
  • I was born a Aquarius and hated to get out of the pool as a baby at the age of 64 I swim a hour daily and still hate to get out of the pool . I do push ups and push outs at the end of my
    laps I swim a hour a day and sometimes more and usually at least 5 times a week at aquatic
    center at the end of my street love it love it love it .
  • This might sound crazy, but my favorite part about swimming laps is the turns. It kills me that I can't do real laps in my parent's pool and that it has to be a vacation only treat for me until I spring for a membership at a gym with a pool. The underwater turn and kickoff is just so exhilarating.
