Water Exercise: Not Just for Seniors Anymore
If you've seen older ladies with their colorful swim caps heading to the pool for water aerobics, you may have thought, "wow, that must be one easy workout."

Think again.

Water exercise is not just for seniors anymore.

This type of workout can aid in injury recovery and give you a cross training benefit that beats many other types of training.

With your heart rate buzzing and your muscles working, water exercise can be just as hard as anything else, yet not quite so hard on your body.

Special guest, Neal Pire, MA, FACSM, joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss all of the benefits of water-based exercises.
