Aqua Fitness is an excellent practical training for seniors who, more and more often, want to better enjoy their “third age”, leading an active and distracted life and, above all, free from care and drugs.
As we all know a sedentary lifestyle is not conducive to health! But that, instead, is among the main reasons for premature body aging – due to a faster cellular degeneration – perhaps this is not yet known to most!
It is also true, however, that not to minimize the many benefits that exercise brings, in the case of the over 65s, exercise should be an important part of everyday life, beginning with the type of physical activity that is practiced.
Ground training, for example, may excessively stress the joints, because of sudden movements; which, is not a problem in Aqua Fitness or in Acquapole® Fitness, due to the buoyancy of water and the reduction of body weight, you can train effectively but much more delicately.
