Aquatic Interval Training as Effective as Aerobic Exercise

Research shows that higher-intensity interval training in the pool can yield similar results as continuous aerobic exercise for producing healthy outcomes; sometimes even more so.  Whether you are short on time, battle joint and muscle pain or simply prefer an aquatic workout; exercises in the pool can allow you to strengthen your cardiovascular system and endurance.  Interval training alternates bursts of high energy with low-energy recovery cycles, allowing a viable, shorter alternative to higher volume, continuous aerobic exercise.  Higher intensity interval training improved cardiorespiratory fitness for some populations including:  people with coronary artery disease, individuals with congestive heart failure, adults in middle age with metabolic syndrome and obese individuals. 

Senior Fitness of Florida provides your community with aquatic classes utilizing higher intensity interval training.
