Why I Love Water Aerobics
Monday, January 05, 2015
Water aerobics was wonderful this morning...The water was warm on this cold frigid day. I'm so glad I discovered water aerobics. It is the most painless way to exercise, since there is no stress on my joints. I also notice that it has improved my flexibility, because I am able to reach to areas that I can't out of water. I think it is great for people who are intimidated by exercise classes-granted you are in a swimming suit, but I put men's trunks and a t-shirt over mine. I feel like the water covers me and things aren't wiggling and jiggling while I try to jump about. I'm a nurse, so I'm on my feet lifting, twisting, bending 8 hours a day. My body hurts a lot and my legs swell, but you would not believe the improvement getting in that pool makes! If I'm hurting, I know it will be better afterwards. I go to the pool so that I'm in 15 minutes before class starts, then I start moving. The 45 minute class flies by, it's fun, great music and when I leave I've gotten 60 minutes of exercise in EASY PEASY! It is by far my favorite workout and the exercise I've stayed consistent with the most. I love water aerobics!
