People of all ages and fitness levels, including pregnant women can enjoy water workouts. When submerged in chest-deep water, about 85 percent to 90 percent of the body’s weight remains supported. As a result, much less stress is placed on the body’s joints during aquatic exercise than during similar exercise on land. The buoyancy provided by water will improve your balance, posture and flexibility, so you are less likely to experience aches and soreness following a water workout. This makes water aerobics an ideal choice not only for healthy individuals but also for those affected by medical conditions such as arthritis, neck and back problems, strokes and obesity.
