H2O workout. Want a perfect body? Just add water.
It’s not just your heart and muscles that stand to benefit from an aquafit class. Working out in water is also fantastic for your internal organs and lymphatic system. “Hydrostatic pressure, turbulence and buoyancy assist in venous return [the flow of blood back to the heart] and lymphatic drainage,” says Kopansky. These extra benefits help explain why participants feel so good after a class the body is refreshed rather than exhausted.
