BENEFITS OF THE PROGRAMME:
Increased muscle strength – Water is a flowing and constantly changing product of nature, and its lightness provides extra support for your muscles and joints. Participants will significantly gain in strength, flexibility, and agility.
Build endurance – Unlike traditional weights, which require the human body to push and pull against the weight plus gravity, water resistance is a more natural resistance which requires the body to strain through the water rather than against it.
Low-impact exercise – We may not often think of it, but the traditional impact we place on our joints during a “land workout” can be taxing. In water-based exercises, the buoyancy of water helps takes off some of the impact we tend to place on our body, due to our own water weight. In layman’s terms, our body is not subject to gravity in the water, therefore the impact on our joints while running in water, is not equal to the impact when running on land. This is particularly appealing to those with joint conditions such as arthritis or those currently undergoing physical rehabilitation.
Relieves stress and decreases anxiety – Watching bodies of water in motion can be one of the most soothing activities one can take part in to help relieve stress, which is why vacations to beaches and island paradises are so popular getaways. Being in the water is relaxing! and it enhances a sense of well-being, mood and sleep quality as well.
Burns calories/Weight loss – The combination of strength and cardio workouts mixed with water resistance in aquatic exercise ensures the body is getting a full workout. Depending on cardio activity, weight, water temperature, volume and buoyancy, the body can burn between 500 to 600 calories in an hour of exercise. Water also has greater resistance than air, which means walking in water requires more effort and ultimately burns more calories than walking on land.
