We are about to bid adieu to days of wavering heat. So how about a nice and refreshing session of aqua aerobics? Celebrity fitness trainer Yasmin Karachiwala recently shared a couple of workout videos of her doing aqua aerobics on her Instagram stories. Aqua aerobics is aerobic exercises in water. When done with the right technique, exercising in water can be as intense as exercising on the land.

Read below to know some more health benefits of aqua aerobics which will make you fall for it instantly:

1. Increases endurance

Doing aqua aerobics can help in increasing endurance. This is because water offers natural resistance. This is different from lifting weights, which require the body to pull and push against weight plus the gravity. Water makes the body strain through the water, which in turn helps in building endurance.

2. Burns calories

Aqua aerobics includes both cardio and strength training workouts - which are done in the presence of water resistance. This makes aqua aerobics a full body workout which can help in burning lots of calories. With reference to the level of cardio activity, volume, water temperature and buoyancy, a person can burn around 400 to 500 calories in an hour of aqua aerobics and can thus help in weight loss. 

3. Improves flexibility

People who want to work on their flexibility can include aqua aerobics in their fitness regime. When you do aqua aerobics, you need to make movements in various directions, while adjusting with the push and pull of water. This increases range of motion of joints and results in a more flexible body.
