The main interests of water exercise

It is said that when you work out in water, the exercise becomes 42 times more intense than usual. The reason of this is the additional resistance provided by the water which requires more effort to make a movement and, therefore, helps you build strong and lean muscles. The other benefits include an improvement of your physical endurance. Moreover, since you have to furnish a greater effort, that implies you will burn more fat. Indeed, you can expect to burn 2 or 3 times more calories than the same exercise out of water. Often, the activities that build muscles do not encourage flexibility. But thanks to the pull of water, the joints of your body have 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 a shame for making a movement wrong. Indeed, the gym is performed in the water.
