The Benefits of Aqua Aerobics Routine (Guest Post)

When I decided to add some cross training to my exercise routine, one of the guys in my running group suggested I try aqua aerobics. I was surprised, because this guy is super serious about his running. I decided to look into it, and I began to see how beneficial aqua aerobics can be.

So what is aqua aerobics? My first research was just to find out what exactly my buddy was talking about. Aqua aerobics is basically using the pool for other things besides swimming. I went and checked out a couple of classes at my gym, and I was surprised to see that they provided a well rounded exercise routine. The instructor had the class do some cardio moves like jumping jacks in the water, some ab work using a thing called a foam noodle, and even a couple of strength moves. I was pretty impressed.

Shaping Up For Summer Part 2

TalaBessette__1

Tala is back with another workout to help get us in better shape for summer. If you missed her first workout check it out here.

Personally, I never feel better than when I have worked out and had a healthy smoothie. It makes me feel like I am on top of the world. I hope you guys are feeling like that too! Tala is here to help.

If you haven’t done much exercise recently there is no better time than spring to get up, get out and get moving!

Getting In Shape For Summer Part 2 by Tala

An important rule in fitness is to keep your body guessing when you are trying to get results. The body is really great at adapting, so it’s important to change up your workouts and keep challenging yourself. It’s not supposed to get easier, you’re just getting stronger!

This workout can be considered a ‘Day 2’ to the previous circuit that was posted. So you can get a different workout on each day! Or if you are looking to switch it up, and don’t have the time to incorporate a workout on each day, change it up with this new circuit I developed.

The videos were shot at the Mansfield Athletic Club in downtown Montreal in their beautiful Trinity Room. Although you can’t see it, the entire ceiling is a skylight!

Remember that a refreshing smoothie goes down really well after a workout ☺

Check me out on my facebook page, and send me a message if you have any questions or comments about the workouts and even if you just want to say hey!

Happy training,
Tala
