Water exercises are a great way to include a little ‘healthy physical activity in our lives … while having fun! They will help you lose weight, burn calories faster and get you into shape, without feeling very fatigued.
In water our every movement exerts a resistance 800 times greater than that of air; and with splashes, music and laughter in the company of others, you can strengthen both the agonist and antagonist muscles. This is all possible thanks to the variety of exercises that water exercises offers us and an innovative and versatile tool, the water Acquapole®.
Water exercises also help to improve blood circulation and fight cellulite: the whirlpool created by the movements in the water and the pressure it exerts on the body stimulates the return of blood to the heart and drainage of those parts of the body where excess fluid accumulates. Promoting the elimination of toxins, reducing water retention and, consequently, the elimination of fat deposits and cellulite.
Water exercises also help to improve joint mobility and the development of co-ordination by enhancing flexibility, dexterity and rhythm that can be strongly penalized by a sedentary lifestyle.
Depending on their function we can classify water exercises into three basic groups
