Get fit and healthy in your pool

Here are reasons to jump into your pool.

  1. When you’re in the water the resistance that the water provides makes even the easiest and slowest workout be beneficial The resistance makes the workout more beneficial than on the land. Exercising in the pool more quickly builds muscle strength and endurance.
  2. The buoyancy of the water means you’re not going to suffer any kind of joint or muscle injury like you would if you were jogging, for example, When you’re waist deep in the pool you “weigh” 50 percent less than you do on land, if you go chest deep in the water you can reduce how much you weigh by an additional 25 percent.
  3. It’s just plain fun! When you’re in the pool, you truly will enjoy yourself while getting in shape and keeping cool!

Even though you’re in the pool, make sure you moisturize when you get out. The chemicals in the pool water are drying. Take a shower and slather on your favorite moisturizer — don’t moisturize before you get in because that will negatively impact the water chemistry.
