Aqua fitness classes allow you to exercise every muscle and every joint in your body all at the same time. Anyone, no matter your age, can perform water aerobics. Water causes your body to be buoyant, thus causing less strain and stress on your joints and muscles. Don't worry, though, you still get the maximum work out when you perform aqua fitness.
