This is a very basic, low-impact, light-intensity workout using the natural resistance of the water to strengthen core muscles, increase balance, coordination and flexibility. Water Walking is appropriate for those just beginning an exercise program or those interested in adding something different to their current workout regimen.
Class takes place mostly in shallow water. Instructors lead the class through a light-intensity cardio workout that consists of walking around in the water. Movements are forward, backward, and side-to-side. Speed and direction of walking are varied to increase or decrease the workout. For deep water portions of the class, back floats are used to keep the body upright while traveling into deeper water.
