Water Aerobics

Aerobic water workouts incorporate a variety of rhythmic body movements and dance steps performed in the water. Programs vary from basic to advanced classes. In beginning programs, the participant learns to combine arm and leg movement in varying combinations. As water aerobic programs become more advanced, they incorporate more intricate dance and calisthenics movements.
