Water Aerobics is not for Sissies!
Just thought I'd take a stand here. I have participated in water aerobics classes for years, and generally when I tell someone I do water aerobics as exercise they get this weird smirk and have visions of little old ladies in 70's swimhats flashing before their eyes. NO! This is not the case, as I assure you water aerobics has changed over the years, and has become something not even resembling Grannie's movement classes. I have had full grown people actually laugh when I tell them that my advanced water aerobics actually works up quite a sweat. "How can you tell under water...blah, blah, blah." I am here to tell you, water is the perfect exercise medium, with higher physical resistance, sustained heart rate, and with fewer physical injuries than most other exercise routines. It does attract swimmers of an advanced age because it is good for every body, regardless of their condition upon starting. So excuse me while I slip on my pop-art flowered swim cap and go work out :::flounce::: (LOL)
