Aqua aerobics is a young sport that is suitable for absolutely all children, teenagers, the elderly, and pregnant women. The benefits of exercising are many times higher than from exercising in the gym, and the risk of traumas is absolutely minimal.
Those who want to lose weight and put their body in order will feel the effects faster than from sports loads. By combining water aerobics with other types of cross-functional complexes and proper nutrition, you will get the maximum effect.

Rhythmic movements in the aqua under the guidance of an instructor are welcome. In water, not one muscle group is overloaded, the joints become as mobile as possible, and the load is distributed evenly.
