How to beat stress? Create an oasis
Stereotype that water aerobics is only suitable for older people and those who suffer from severe obesity, is gradually destroyed. It attracts more and more young people; there are new areas, special programs for athletes water aerobics classes.
If the last time you went to water aerobics for more than ten years ago, came to the gym today, you will see that a lot has changed. Previously, these sessions focused on proper breathing, people learned to float and most of the exercises are performed in a horizontal position.

Water aerobics: Lose Weight with pleasure
They believe that it will benefit almost everyone. In some countries, water aerobics (intensive course) is used in the framework of physical training of firefighters and police officers. It is also used to recover from sports injuries and for mixed training. Elderly water aerobics is recommended as a safe and easy way to keep fit, despite age-related changes. Finally, water aerobics is very useful for arthritis sufferers
Arthritis - a variety of forms and complications
and some other diseases, because of which they can not fully train on the ground. Activities in the water to help these patients to increase range of motion in joints, relieve pain and reduce joint stiffness.
Age and physical fitness do not matter much for those who want to engage in water aerobics - the water is friendly to all. Kids like to just play in the water and they do not even think that it is for them not only a source of pleasure, but also health benefits. Elderly people, even those who move with the stick or wheelchair in the water, too, experience the joy of what can stand up without support - or rather, with the support of water. Pregnant women are also very useful for water aerobics - in the pool at the time they cease to feel the weight of his belly.
The ability to swim is also irrelevant. Most of the exercises in the water aerobics classes is performed at shallow depths, and the people at the same time there are feet on the bottom of the pool (what hair remains dry - another advantage, which is especially appreciated by women with long hair).
Water makes training safer for patients with brittle bone joints and so the pressure on them becomes weaker, the deeper a person is immersed in water. Moreover, since a depth (even relatively low) water pressure greater than just below the surface, the blood quickly and easily raised from the extremities to the heart, and this is useful even for perfectly healthy people.
However, despite the relative safety of the water aerobics, running and jumping in the shallow water on the joints of the leg still is significant pressure. For this reason, training is required to buy special shoes that can be worn in the pool - it will soften the blow. For starters, almost any suitable shoes for the pool. Someone even wears a simple water aerobics shoes (of course, they have to be clean, you can not go into the water at the same sneakers, in which you went down the street). If you understand that I want to constantly water aerobics, can buy more expensive shoes specifically for water aerobics.
However, the shoes, as well as various equipment is a secondary factor for successful employment. The presence of an instructor, it is desirable, but not necessarily the same. It is important that the water has your movements resistance at least 12 times greater than the air resistance, so that each movement in the water is a significant burden on the muscles. So you can feel the beneficial effects of water aerobics, you do not need any expensive equipment or Olympic-size pool. What you really need - it's your body, willpower (which bring himself to come to the pool), and the pool itself, however small.
Water aerobics will help those who are very shy about their bodies. In fact, it is difficult for many people to deal with any kind of sport, and the appearance in a swimsuit in front of strangers except that dream into a nightmare. However, it can and must be overcome, because as soon as you enter the water, all your shortcomings become imperceptible. In the water are all equal - every body is distorted, it looks vague and broad. Doing aerobics studio, surrounded by mirrored walls, psychologically much more difficult. The water is very democratic. However, if you are not comforting, can wear a bathing suit instead of the usual water aerobics classes on the blinders and jersey lycra - employee pool just will not object.
Will water aerobics lose weight
For quite a long debate about how effective exercise in water burn calories. According to some reports, the water aerobics classes subcutaneous fat is consumed more slowly than usual "ground" training.

, Relieves stress, thereby reducing appetite. Some experts even believe that exercise in water can to some degree help with compulsive overeating.
In addition, studies show that the number of calories expended increases with increasing depth at which trains people.
