Water workouts provide a safe and fun way to lose weight, build muscle, and heal from injuries with zero harmful impact. Featuring clear instructions and helpful line drawings, "Make the Pool Your Gym" provides guidance for everyone to design their ultimate wet workout plans to get fit and feel great. As injuries from running, lifting and other traditional workouts increase, more and more fitness enthusiasts are turning to water workouts as a better, safer way to get in shape. Now you can to. Packed with over 75 exercises and more than 200 step-by-step photos, "Make the Pool Your Gym" shows you why pool work is no longer restricted to classes for the elderly and rehabilitation sessions for post-surgery athletes. With exercises for all parts of your body plus plans for underwater running, working out with props, and water stretching, "Make the Pool Your Gym" provides you with the same strength-building, calorie-blasting benefits as normal exercises but substitutes the inviting fun of water for the jolting pain of land.
