Love it! Even joined a SP team for it.
Love water, good on the joints and can be fun.
I just got back from water aerobics and also did some lap swimming. I love it. I've been doing this since June of this Year and it has changed my life. I have energy on my days off from dyalisis. I do recommend it highly to anyone.
I use to go the the local YMCA and do water aerobics 3 times a week. It was a great low impact way to exercise and helped greatly with my back pain. I would also do some swimming while I was there too! Unfortunately, where we have moved to there is no local YMCA with a pool so that I could continue and I have really noticed a big difference. I just keep hoping that the local YMCA will add an indoor pool.
Swimming is the best exercise!

I love water sports and activities.
Wish I had a pool.
