Their system can be used by people of all ages and fitness levels and consists of aquatic resistance equipment.
What makes our Aqua strength programming unique is that we are not just taking land based exercises and putting them in the water, which a lot of aquatic programs out there tend to do. Our bodies tend to function so much differently in the water than they do on land because of the waters properties of buoyancy, viscosity, drag, density and pressure, meaning it is crucial to follow exercise programs designed especially for the water.
Water is 800 times more supportive than air, but can be up to 15 times more resistant, giving you the best of both worlds. Water functions in three dimensions which is how we move day to day and when performing sports specific activities. The water does not discriminate. It is appropriate for all ages and abilities. If you are looking to improve flexibility, strength, weight loss, balance, speed, power, agility, recovery or compliment your land based program with cross training, then the water is the place for you.
Water is the great equalizer. The harder you push, the harder the water will push back, giving you total control and making it a very safe and effective way to train.
Another way that the water is more effective than land is that is very easy to train multiple body muscle groups and body parts at the same time. This allows for a better balanced, holistic workout.
There is no substitute for hard work, however there are ways to maximize efficiency and ensure you are getting the most out of your workout. Fortunately there are ways to get a total body workout, improve your cardiovascular fitness, burn calories, build lean muscle and improve strength as well as maximize efficiency.
