The term Aqua Fitness refers to an innovative form of water training that enhances muscle tone and improves joint mobility by performing a number of exercises developed ad hoc.
Exercises are often inherited from many ground training disciplines (from Boxing to Step to Nordic Walking) but performed at a reduced speed with regard to the nature of the workout environment.
Water, in fact, is a fluid like air, but, with respect to the latter, is much denser and has a resistance about 12 times greater than any pushing or pulling movement.
Hence the essence of Aqua Fitness itself, which exploits the power of aquatic resistance to enhance strength, coordination and mobility.
Thanks to the advent of Acquapole® Fitness, Aqua Fitness is successfully experimenting all over the world, the benefits of a workout that uses water not only as a resistance but also as a support. Due to the water principle of floatation (better known as the Archimedes Principle, according to which “A body immersed in a liquid receives a push from the bottom upwards equal to the weight of the liquid shifted”), bit by bit as the body part immersed goes deeper, the greater the force that pushes us upward with support and floatation.
Also, the ability to train in water “leaning” on the Aquapole® aquatic tool allows you to bring Aqua Fitness to those user classes that are often excluded. Like children, starting from the age of 3, with whom they can develop pre-game play instructions.
But even pregnant women, overweight people, those who have suffered a trauma, etc. And even those who are not able to swim.
Sometimes even getting them to workout in high water, where resistance increases and, with it, the benefits that we can gain from our workout.
The Aquapole® Aquatic Tool has contributed to a turning point in Aqua Fitness, not just for the absolutely innovative way to super-train in water, of which we have just talked about, but above all for its versatility.
With its 150 exercises and 20 possible holds, the Aquapole® Aquatic Tool is an extremely versatile workout apparatus. Adequate to develop workout programs that can be developed extensively regarding age, sex, and overall body fitness.
That’s why Aquapole® Fitness is an innovative to do Aqua Fitness!
