This is a great option for you if you love the water, are trying to get back in shape, having trouble with arthritis or simply want to switch up your workout routine. It is appropriate for all fitness levels. According to the American Council on Exercise, water buoyancy reduces the “weight” of a person to 90 percent. This reduces the burden on stress-bearing joints and muscles. Water aerobics also increases muscle strength. Instead of weights, the water provides a natural resistance to your movements. Being in the water also increases your lung capacity since your lungs are forced to work harder from the pressure of the water. Your long-term flexibility may be increased by performing difficult stretches, being underwater gives you a wider-range of motion.
The YMCA of Greater Williamson County offers a variety of suitable water classes for all skill levels and is safe for non-swimmers. The pool provides many benefits when used for aerobic exercise and resistance training. Check out some of the programs we offer.
