Course Description

Aqua aerobics benefits any one looking for a different way of exercising. It’s fun, burns calories, relieves stress, improves cardiovascular fitness, and endurance without the use of equipment. Water based exercise classes provide less joint stress not only for healthy individuals, but also for those special populations affected by medical conditions such as arthritis, neck and back problems, strokes and obesity. This type of aerobics may also be more acceptable for the self-conscious overweight exerciser.
