Water aerobics is probably the safest alternative to standard aerobics. It causes very little stress to your joints. It is an exercise that is performed in the water. The water provides resistance, so fairly simple movements result in a better workout than if they were done out of the water. It is fitness where you sweat less and have little to no muscle fatigue. There is no time like the present to have fun, burn calories, and strengthen core muscles!
