Default Anyone tried aqua-aerobics?

My local gym does aqua-aerobics and I thought I might give it a try. Has anyone tried this and felt fitter or more toned as a result?

We have a class being offered on this at our local YMCA. My Mom and I are going to take the class and see what it is all about. It doesn't start though until next month. I would love to hear from someone that has tried it.

Aqua-aerobics are great if you are suffering from injuries too, it's a good way to keep fit during rehab with knee or leg injuries

I am ashamed to say, I can't swim, I love the water though, however I am not comfortable with my feet leaving the ground.

When I belonged to a gym they had water aerobics. I didn't participate because I felt the need to actually perspire while exercising, and I wanted to reap the benefits of weight bearing activities.

I felt that aqua aerobics would slow my seeing results.

I found that I did perspire! I know it sounds odd but you really do! Especially when you have just finished and goten out of the water. You can also "feel" it in your muscles the next day, the same as any other aerobics.

I think this would be a wonderful alternative to gym workouts. I think it would be less stressful on your joints.

Just to update you on this - I have done the class twice now and it is quite fun and you do feel it the next day so I guess it is having some benefit. You can put in as much effort as you want - some people just kind of float around and I don't think that will do too much good! You do feel a bit of a fool prancing around in the pool but on the plus side nearly everyone was over 50 and pretty large so me and my friend felt very young and slim in comparison!
Nice jacuzzi afterwards as well!

The jacuzzi sounds like heaven! However you get your exercise is the best, no matter how silly it seems.

I think that it would actually be a lot of fun, but whenever I see people doing water aerobics at the pool, they are significantly older than me, and I feel that I would not fit in.
