Aqyagym is suitable for everyone; experienced or novice exercisers, fit and unfit, young and old, swimmers and non-swimmers and those wanting a zero impact or rehabilitative exercise. It is far more social than other workouts, but equally can be more focused if you prefer to work alone.
Exercising in water is less likely to cause injury and muscle soreness by reducing the weight of a person by 90%, reducing the burden on stress bearing joints & muscles. Capitalising on the natural properties of buoyancy and resistance, the Aquagym creates a zero impact workout.
An Aquagym workout can improve provide muscular strength, endurance, body composition, aerobic capacity, flexibility and co-ordination. Additionally water based physical activity can relieve tension, anxiety, depression and anger and promote a sense of wellbeing. The health benefits are vast and regular exercise on the Aquagym can improve health problems such as arthristis, mental illness, heart failure and stroke.
