Happiness through fitness

Exercising in water builds cardiovascular stamina, strength, and flexibility, helps burn body fat, increases circulation, and can help you rehabilitate healing muscles and joints.

Many benefits

Increases muscle strength, builds endurance, increases flexibility, alleviates pressure on the joints, relives stress and decreases anxiety, and reduces blood pressure.

“To appreciate why water training works so well, you need to understand water’s unique properties. In water, you have almost no gravity. You’re relieved of 90 percent of your body weight, so you become buoyant. This frees you to move in new ways.

You can float, bob and relax without feeling like you’re putting out an effort. Yet water provides 12 to 14 percent more resistance than air, so moving through it is like having weights all around your body”

– Dr Mercola
