We all have different reasons for getting in the pool. Read why Lesley is making a Big Splash and if you are like her, or want to be, choose your own splash from the options below.
"I stay fit because it feels good. When I gave up contact sports because of an injury I wanted a new physical challenge and a friend recommended water-based exercise. So I contacted my local pool to see what they had available.
I thought swimming was just about lengths. It’s not. I started using weights in the pool and took up Aqua Jogging. Now I’m getting better results than I ever got in the gym. And it is low impact.
I don’t have to worry about the dreaded middle-age spread either – working out in the water is something you can keep up at any age and at every level of fitness."
Are any of these statements you?
- I have an injury but still want to keep fit.
- I’m a fitness freak. I’m always looking for something different.
- I’ve been inspired to push my fitness.
- I’m seeking a gentle introduction to fitness.
