Walking in water is the most beneficial and functional way to achieve a workout without wear and tear on the joints. People who cannot walk safely on land can spend quality time in the water. Discover the many opportunities water offers to safely train weaker muscle groups for balanced strength. Walk in many directions rather than forward all the time. Learn to change direction safely. Use creative patterns to promote the resistive properties of water. Work out alone, with a partner or with group to challenge balance, coordination, and agility!
