Water aerobics is probably the safest alternative to standard aerobics. It causes very little stress to your joints (low impact). The water provides resistance, so fairly simple movements result in a better workout than if they were done on land. There is no equipment to buy, but there may be class fees.
Water aerobics may be appropriate for people who:
- Have joint problems.
- Are overweight.
- Are older.
- Are pregnant.
When done properly, water aerobics is safe.
