The Healing Power Of Water

El Centro, California (NAPSI) - To help you get in the swim for fitness exercise, renowned  aquatics expert, U.S.  Masters Swimming and Synchro Champion Dr. Jane Katz answers questions on  water exercise:

Q: Who should exercise in water?  The magic of water works for everyone. All ages. All ability levels. Whether  in shape or overweight, workouts can be adapted to fit one’s needs.

Q: What are the benefits of aquatic  exercise versus other fitness routines? Water is simultaneously buoyant  and resistant. People can relax in it but still stretch and strengthen. It’s  a holistic workout—mind, body and spirit.

Q: You often touch on those  spiritual benefits of water workouts. Can you explain? Aquatic fitness is  a freeing experience. You may be overweight or have a joint problem, but you  will still feel good. I teach a group of mature-women water exercisers. Some  might not have exercised before taking this class, or they come in with a  cane. But by the time class is over, they’ve left the cane by the side  of the pool. Everyone’s feeling good.

Q: And how would you say Aquabelle  suits fit into an aquatic fitness routine? Aquabelle swimsuits are  functional, fashionable and built for fitness. They fit well and look good  whether you’re full figured or frail. They’re so colorful,  splashy and fun that you’re excited about putting on your swim finery,  so to speak.
