Hey all, I just wanted to share that I have improved so much since starting the aquarobics my PT recommended. I haven't been able to tolerate any other exercise--including walking! I have also learned that I need evening classes. Morning classes are too hard on me. But, I'm exercising 2x a week and it really helps! :)
It was really hard to start because I was scared it would just put me in more pain. But the water makes all the difference. I have been able to increase the workout intensity at my own pace, and I feel much more stable now that I am moving
I have been doing it also twice a week. The pool is set to 91° it's perfect for the exercise. It's really made a difference I can walk a little bit longer now before I have to sit down. I think evening classes would be great for me too but I can't because of my job
@ Jani and luvsdragracing- I am So glad that water aerobics is working well for you. I wish that they had water aerobics at the YMCA in my area, because I can't afford a gym membership. I use the pool at my apartment complex during the summer months.
There are different types of water aerobics, so I would search aquarobics specifically. I go to a community center pool, but I pay the aquarobics people directly. They take care of all the pool and facility fees. It ends up costing me about $10 for an hour. I would rather pay that than drs office and med co-pays.
