Is it a long time that you haven’t done sports but want to resume doing physical activity? Aqua Fitness, instead of the usual gym activity, might be the solution you were looking for.
When for lack of time, laziness, health problems, etc. we are blocked from doing a sport, going back to doing physical activity regularly (2 or 3 times a week) can be boring as well as very tiring.
That’s why, in this article, we thought of providing you with some useful tips to help you get back into shape, thanks to the benefits of Aqua Fitness.
- Proceed step by step. Aqua Fitness can help you greatly regarding this
It is true that, regardless of age and physical form, muscles tend to respond almost immediately to any regular sports activity. But, it is also true that a good level of tendon, ligament and joint efficiency can be longer to regain if a long time has passed since you last did a sport. Just as the fatigue that is felt at the beginning is much higher due to the mental laziness that drove us to the couch rather than the pool!
For this reason, when you start practicing physical activity, try to give yourself time before you increase the exercise repeat speed or the amplitude of the movements; to pass, in other words, from easy to tough. Otherwise you will risk injuring yourself and giving up after the first injury!
In this regard, Aqua Fitness can help greatly and in particular the Acquapole® method. With over 20 holds and 150 different exercises, Acquapole® Fitness allows you to develop sports protocols that are suitable for any physical form, offering a variety of training sessions that can work on all muscle bands – legs, arms, muscles and ‘core’.
Don’t forget that in water, unlike ground training, the joints are more protected from trauma and fractures. That’s why the pool is an ideal training venue to boost muscle mass and increase balance and flexibility, without “risks.”
Without risk and we would add … “without fatigue”. Yes, it’s true! Because in water we all weigh less. It is worthy of the water floating principle that, as recited by Archimedes, who first observed it, “everybody immersed in water receives an upward thrust equal to the weight of the shifted liquid.” This thrust is nothing more than the hydrostatic thrust that means a body immersed in water is actually lighter!
- Start with a varied and fun activity. Aqua Fitness
Aqua Fitness, like the gym, offers many training solutions ranging from water exercises to body training to water exercise equipment; such as the more traditional pool bikes, the aqua step or the latest generation such as Acquapole®, Acquapole® Elastic Pole, Acquapole® T-Traction and Acquapole® Boxing Bag. Offering a valid motivation, in addition to personal ones, to overcome fatigue and overcome the water: With splashing water and music not only are you having fun but also transforming any Aqua Fitness lesson into a moment of leisure and stress relief; in a moment, in other words, useful to relieve tensions and load energy.
- Better well-accompanied than alone!
Having a friend to share the adventure of returning to sport, pushing you when fatigue or laziness is trying to beat you, can be a valuable system to keep you safe from making a U-turn.
When this is not possible, however, doing a group activity like Aqua Fitness is an interesting alternative to not underestimate. The playful connotation that we all attribute to water will surely help to let go. Also, due to the fact that we are immersed up to our necks, we are less exposed to prying judgments and people looking at our cellulite and clumsy movements. With music and struggling together, a good aqua fitness instructor will do the rest: turning a class of students into a group of people who are delighted to meet up every two or three days to practice a healthy, enjoyable, and regular physical group activity.
