Did you know that water exercises are some of the best exercises to do, especially if you have issues with mobility? Let's Review How to make that exercise even better!
The fins add just that little bit of resistance that makes your workout even better. Gliding through the pool is easier in a way and harder too! You can cover a greater distance with less effort. The real trick is that with the swim fins on, your muscles are actually working quite a bit harder even though it doesn't feel like it.
When you know that these fins make the difference that they do, you are much more likely to try them out yourself. They are not a "big" investment either. Water activities are one of the best ways to keep in shape and do something good for yourself and your body. At public pools, they have waiting lists to join in the Aqua Aerobics classes and it seems that even when they add more of these classes they fill up as quickly as they are started. The water helps us keep active without adding extra stress to our already sore joints.
Its a win-win situation, you get the exercise you need to stay healthy and at the same time the water and activity makes you feel better about your overall ability to exercise.
I'm not a doctor and you should always consult with your family physician before undertaking a new fitness routine, but I can assure you there would be very few doctors telling you not to go swimming. It's one of the easiest and best exercises around. It is also one of the main reasons we moved from a house to a condo that has a swimming pool indoors for my use. Being an indoor pool, there is no need to stop my activities in the winter months. As a matter of fact, I kind of like looking out the windows at the snow covered ground while I swim my laps. I may be wet, but I'm also warm!
My fins are coming with me to Jamaica next week and I will give them a work out in the bay as well as the pool. I'll let you know what I think. Right now, I am so happy that my Santa saw fit to give me these for Christmas this year. This is a gift that will be used all through the year and will travel with me too!
