Why your health club should offer aquatic exercise programs and provide access to all?

     Pools can be a great asset for health clubs. Pools are not only great draws for families.  It allows facilities to offer multiple programs for aquatic exercise, rehabilitation, cross training and much more.  By providing access to your swimming pool you can draw in a variety of individuals of all ages, fitness and wellness levels to increase your overall membership.  Aquatic exercise is often more effective than land based exercise for strength and cardiovascular training.



     There is a growing movement towards aquatic exercise and aqua therapy emerging in the United States.  Programs include aquatic spin classes, underwater treadmill running and more.  The major benefit of these programs is they provide a low impact, pain free, calorie burning fitness program.  Individuals can enjoy a cardio workout, improved circulation, overall fitness with minimal strain on joints and past injuries.

   


     Health clubs can also benefit from health care’s new focus on rehabilitation methods involving aquatic therapy.  Patients recovering from surgery or other health issues are seeking a facility that can accommodate their rehabilitation needs.  New aqua therapy products provide stability in the water for therapy and rehabilitation needs. The water itself provides buoyancy which can reduce weight and impact by up to 90%. Warm water can better improve circulation and flexibility.



     The handicap industry is pushing to provide access for all individuals of varied abilities to your pool or spa. This can significantly benefit health club members and the overall business.  The ADA estimates one in five individuals have a disability.  Providing access to everyone can improve your customer base by 20%. Once an individual becomes aware of your amenities and access, they often bring additional family members and friends to your location.

     Health clubs should offer a wide selection of aquatic programs to their customers.  By providing access equipment, members of all ages and wellness levels can enjoy the benefits of aquatic exercise.  Get on board with the aquatic exercise movement by investing in aquatic exercise equipment including pool bikes, elliptical trainers and treadmills.  The benefits of aquatic exercise and rehabilitation are endless.   Creating programs providing equipment to support individuals in their aerobic or muscular training will increase memberships.  Aquatic exercise helps with flexibility, endurance and body composition.  As baby boomers become older and our population more bariatric the interest, excitement and participation in aquatic exercise is going to increase dramatically.

Aquatic Exercise-Body and Mind!



Not only is water essential for life, also for our body and mind. There are many ways to enjoy the water and improve your health. There are various programs available for aquatic exercise, therapy, sport and training. The possibilities of water activities seem to be endless.

There are Adaptive Aquatics programs held for disabled children. The program teaches children to float in water, regardless of their disability by relaxing into a floating position. The class also goes over basic swimming skills and range of motion exercises depending on the needs of each child. Floating on your back can be relaxing and increase the child's confidence in water.  If they were in a situation where they fell into the water and had to wait until help arrived they would be safe.  The water provides an environment where the children can play and get exercise.

You do not have to be a strong swimmer to benefit from aquatic exercise. The classes are done in chest deep water. There are many aquatic classes available including spin, dance, kick boxing, yoga and Pilates. The resistance of water can help develop strength.  Using water exercise equipment allows you to vary the intensity of a workout.

Physicians often recommend and issue a prescription for aquatic physical therapy. The water allows you to move more freely and decreases pain.  Water has a therapeutic effect on our muscles allowing them to relax and increase flexibility.  The warm temperature of the water increases blood flow throughout the body.  This enables faster healing.

There are many ways to enjoy the water and regardless of your goals aquatic exercise may be right for you. The water provides a safe, low impact environment to exercise, relax or just have fun.
