…Water is 8 pounds to the gallon. It’s a weight—and you can use it to create 12 to 14 times the resistance of air for a better workout.
…Water aerobics is no longer for seniors. The average age is now 40.
…Kick boxing and other martial arts are also going “wet.”
…Water is also more refreshing than a big hot sweat bath.
…Six million Americans exercise in the pool—especially Boomers with banged up ankles and knees.
…Don’t overdo it at first—you will get sore just as you would with any unfamiliar exercise.
…You can up the aerobic ante with belts, special weights and webbed gloves, if you want.
…Of course, there is always swimming, too, while you are there.
