What is Aquasize? Aquasize is an impact-free exercise class which improves strength, flexibility and endurance. It incorporates the use of floatation belts and foam dumbbells and is best performed in deep water but can also be done in shallow water. All movements are done completely in the water - your feet (ideally) never touch the ground and your hands and arms never leave the water - the only thing out of the water is your head!
This workout is extremely JOINT-FRIENDLY and is ideal for people with arthritis, back and knee problems, and people recovering from accident or injury. It is self-regulating: you determine the intensity - anywhere from light to strenuous.
A 1-hour class begins and ends with 10-15 minutes of Aqua Jogging which serves as a warm-up, cool-down and aerobic workout. I teach you the proper technique and posture to prevent any possible back or neck strain and continuously monitor and critique you. In between is a 30-40 minute series of exercises which I have developed myself and which can be done by anyone - even people with disabilities! They are designed primarily to be back and joint friendly!
I presently have AQUAJOGGER X-CUFFS for $20/pair
(can be worn on ankles AND/OR wrists to intensify workout)
