Pool Fitness Programs at Mount Fitness
Health and wellness experts recommend using the swimming pool for aerobic and resistance training, especially for those individuals who may not be able to participate in gym fitness classes. The buoyancy of the water helps to protect joints and provide support. Water is more resistant than air, enabling you to build muscle strength without the pounding impact felt on dry land. According to the Mayo Clinic, research has shown that joint-friendly aquatic exercise can improve physical functioning in adults over 50.
