The Benefits of Water-Based Exercise in a Littleton Pool
Swimming is the second most popular sports activity in the United States, and it’s a great way to engage in regular aerobic activity. According to the CDC, just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity – like swimming – decreases the risk of chronic illness. Water-based activities help with chronic diseases like arthritis. Swimming can also boost mood and improve mental health.
Water-based activities are ideal for older adults as they decrease disability and improve quality of life. In post-menopausal women, regular swimming maintains and even improves bone health. Some gyms with pools don’t give much thought to all the health benefits and water exercise classes an indoor pool can offer, but Club USA does.
Our aquafit classes are some of the best compared to other gyms with pools near you.
Get out of the studio & into the pool for this non-stop, total body workout that uses the resistance of the water to improve cardiovascular stamina and muscular endurance. You get a complete cardio and conditioning workout in our aquafit classes at our pool in Littleton without the impact or stress on the body!

Exercising in water makes you feel about 90 percent lighter, reports the American Council on Exercise. When you jump or run in the water, your body does not experience the same impact that these moves cause on land. This makes water aerobics classes an ideal activity for those with arthritis, back problems, foot or leg injuries, and knee conditions. Pregnant women and obese also benefit from the reduced impact.
Expect to burn between 400 and 500 calories per hour in one of our water aerobics classes, according to the Aquatic Exercise Association. The actual amount you burn will depend on your size, the intensity of your movements, as well as water temperature and depth. In general, faster movements incorporating the upper and lower body in deep water elicit the greatest calorie burn.
When exercising in water, you work against 12 times the resistance of air, according to an article published in “American Fitness” in 1996. Simply kicking and cupping the water helps contribute to muscle development, which translates into a higher metabolism and healthier body. Many water aerobics classes incorporate equipment like water paddles, noodles, single or double buoys, and kickboards to further induce strength gains. Push-ups or triceps dips performed on the pool deck also help build strength.
