Pool Exercises: How to Get in Shape While Working Out in the Water

I have to admit - I have been very lazy about working out lately. I love yoga and will (reluctantly) go on the occasional run, but I am always looking for new ways to move. My husband swims laps, but I get bored so easily! This is why I was so excited when Alicia Dedigama, co-founder of Aquaspin™, came to show us some simple but effective exercises we can do in the pool beyond just swimming laps.

Working out in the water has so many benefits - it burns 3x the calories compared to land exercise (!!!) and is a very low-impact workout for people with injuries or health concerns. You'll notice in the video that Alicia is 7 months pregnant and still looking fantastic. Working out in the pool is the ideal exercise during pregnancy: you feel weightless, don't stress your joints and won't overheat. It's really for everyone, and Alicia will show you 5 exercises you can do in the pool with no equipment (except the last one, where she shows you how an aqua bike works!)

 

 

If you want to try out Aquaspin™ for yourself, hop on over to aquaspin.sg and sign up for their intro week. Alicia has also given us a bonus to share with you - get $10 OFF your week trial ($50 instead of $60) when you enter the code WTD at checkout!

So what are you waiting for? Grab your swimsuit, jump into the water and start getting in shape! Hope you'll enjoy getting fit in the pool.


Stay safe,
