Whether you have a backyard pool or belong to a club, time spent poolside can be very sedentary. While we’re all for relaxing with a good book, pool time is also a great time to sneak in an enjoyable workout! Why exercise in the pool? Water provides more resistance than air, enabling you to move your body with more intensity and greater range of motion with less impact. And of course, water also helps to bear about half of your body weight, reducing strain on muscles and joints.
