Just being in the water causes you to exercise. Every move you make in the water has to be deliberate to resist the continual pressure of the water on your body.
Because the water is a thicker medium than air, by moving in the water the amount of resistance from the water can range from 4 to 44 times that of air. Using the resistance of the water in exercise is like exercising with weights or machines on land, but safer.
In chest deep water, approximately 90% of your body weight is buoyant, therefore you really are bearing only 10% of your weight when you exercise. Exercise in the water is much safer and your joints and muscles are virtually stress-free.
Because of your constant movement in the water, cool water is continually moving around you, washing away your sweat and cooling you while you are exercising. You never feel over- heated and sweaty.
The hydrostatic pressure of the water on your body, joints, muscles and internal organs, massages and comforts all parts your body while you exercise.
Because aquatic exercise is a low impact exercise and it is great for people suffering from joint problems or issues with weight. When you work out in the water you get a total body workout and a fast way to improve general strength, stamina, and cardiovascular fitness.
Cardiovascular benefits include the strengthening of the heart muscles a lower heart rate, and improvement of oxygen delivery to muscles.
