You don't have to be a swimmer or sprightly to experience the joys of water and the benefits of water exercising.
In your own or the local pool, you have the best fitness medium imaginable. The pool is not just for kids to play around in, or for competitive swimmers only. Even if you can't swim, it's for you -- a fitness center that comes without embarrassment because you are doing something sensible that looks sensible!
Use the pool as a gym for:
• general day-by-day fitness
• body building -- using even only old socks on your hands or feet!
• sports training and injury recovery
• pregnancy - gentle yet great-flexibility help
• aches and pains relief -- no matter what your age
Water exercising is also great fun: Do it to music. Do it in pairs or groups, or just indulge yourself. Get strong or get as slim as possible with it.
If you push against water, you will meet a smooth resistance that gives back what you put in. You feel that special 'soft' resistance that only water gives so soothingly and relaxingly. So use it to benefit yourself or your loved ones or friends.
Water is the only fitness 'apparatus' you need have.
Be your own coach in your own pool.
