Water Aerobics: The Best Way to Add a Splash to Your Summer Workout!

Working out is so much fun as a group! We offer free aquatic group classes for all Sky Fitness members in our 25-meter indoor pool and 95° therapy pool. Group classes include: H20 Athletic Training, Half & Half, Smooth Seas, Total Splash and Warm Water TherapyWater aerobics builds cardio, strength and resistance all while being easy on the joints and in a cool and relaxing atmosphere! Health Fitness Revolution values the key benefits of water aerobics:

  • Increase your muscular strength. Water in its natural state provides strong resistance so that you get a powerful workout. See improvement in as little as 12 weeks!
  • Builds endurance because water’s organic resistance requires the body to strain through the water rather than against it.
  • Increases flexibility by improving range of motion on the body’s joints.
  • Water aerobics is considered a low-impact activity because the buoyancy of the water helps take off some of the crushing force we tend to place on our body, due to our own water weight.
  • Members with arthritis or those in physical rehabilitation benefit greatly from warm water therapy. Warm water provides ease of movement and relaxation on the muscles.
  • Improve your mental health. Relieve stress and anxiety simply by just being in the water.
  • Lose weight by burning more calories while you feel like you are playing. Treading water vigorously for one minute burns 11 calories which is comparable to running 6 miles per hour.
