The benefits of exercising in a water

Exercising in water intensifies your workout, as the added resistance requires more effort to move, helping build strong, lean muscles. This increased effort also boosts physical endurance and leads to greater fat burning, with up to 2 or 3 times more calories burned compared to land-based exercises. Additionally, water-based activities promote flexibility by allowing joints to move through a wider range of motion.

Aquagym is part of the low-impact activities. It means that the workout doesn't affect your joints (or at least that the effect is not as violent) as much as a normal activity because there are no harmful landings even for the most cardio exercises. It is then ideal for people with rheumatism such as elderly people and for pregnant women who need to avoid jumping as well as people who follow a rehabilitation program.

Being immersed in water is proven to reduce anxiety and stress. As physical activity is known to secrete endorphins, you will quickly notice a positive effect on your general mood. Similarly, it will boost your confidence because people with every level of fitness can follow the classes without feeling ashamed for making a movement wrong. Indeed, the gym is performed in the water.
