Fit Tip: Take a Plunge

Monday Morning Fit Tip:



YOU CAN GET A GREAT WORKOUT IN THE POOL!  The major benefit of working out in water is that you get resistance coming from all sides, but without the stress and impact that you get from exercising on land. In fact, working out in water requires that you support just 50 percent of your body weight, which makes exercising easier yet still effective. 

Water workouts are especially good for anyone who: needs a gentle, low-impact workout, including if you are elderly, obese, pregnant, or if you have arthritis, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, heart problems or other pain issues.
