The word almost says it all. What started as a fad in the 1980s is now a bona fide cardiovascular exercise. The difference is that, when practiced in a pool, it turns into an intense routine rather than a cardiovascular routine. Other activities made the transition from land to water such as yoga, zumba and jogging.

If you’re looking to enjoy any water sport or to enjoy quality time with your family, your pool is the idyllic place. Don’t forget to consult with your physician before you start any exercise routine.
