EZ Swimmer The Ultimate Water Aerobics Fitness Tool

People the world over need exercise from Europe to Asia to the United States. Exercising in the water is not just exhilarating and fun but effective too! The magic of the swimming pool extends beyond the low impact for the joints. Scientists know the water offer hydrostatic pressure which serves to decrease our resting heart rate 15-18 beats per minute. Scientists know the water offers 360 degrees of resistance. Scientist know we can live longer and healthier lives with watching our diet and with regular exercise. How can we achieve our exercise goals and have fun too? With the EZ Swimmer - the ultimate fitness tool for water aerobics!


Target Toning Helps Change the Metabolism and Helps with Weight Loss

Research has shown that building muscle changes our metabolism. Combining cardio with strength training is needed in parallel with a change in diet. Eating healthy and cutting down on fats and sugars is key in any weight loss program. While dieting to my mind is never fun, exercising can be made fun. Forgoing the chocolate cake still hurts. Target toning in the water or increasing my heart rate with water aerobics is simply an exercise program I am very thankful was invented.

Weight Loss for Seniors Helpful

My grandfather gallantly fought the battle of the bulge and during his annual physical examination, his family physician who he had known for years told him something very memorable. "You don't see old fat people." Sadly it is true, seniors who struggle with added pounds typically shorten their life. Dr. Oz has calculated the years and provide your Real Age Quiz. What we eat, what we weight, combined with the amount of weekly exercise is critical to our longevity and to our quality of our lives.

Paradigm of Weight for Seniors Changing

My grandparents were always ahead of the curve for health and fitness. Perhaps it was brilliant physicians such as my Grandfather's family physician who connected with him in terms that hit home and remained memorable. Perhaps it was my Grandmother who followed her physical therapy exercises with daily diligence with sandbags decades after her knee surgery. Nonetheless, today the paradigm of weight and exercise for the entire population with special emphasis upon seniors is changing.

Intentional weight loss helps, not harms, seniors

"The outcome of a study scheduled to appear in the print issue of the Journal of Gerontology: Medical Sciences contradicts the concerns raised by previous studies that deliberate weight loss among older individuals could increase the risk of death.

Weight reduction aids in lowering high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol and high fasting glucose levels, all of which can increase with aging, yet some health care practitioners have hesitated recommending weight loss to older individuals due to findings that associated weight reduction with increased mortality. However, the studies upon which these conclusions were based did not address whether weight loss was intentional or due to underlying disease."


"For years, the medical community has relied on multiple epidemiological studies that suggested that older people who lost weight were more likely to die," he remarked. "Weight loss in old folks is just understood to be a bad prognostic sign. The data that people have been using has been unable to separate the cause and effect of the weight loss, however, and our study suggests that the weight loss they've been studying may be the result of other health problems and not of intentional weight loss."



Exercise for Seniors

But exercise is only part of it. "In the fitness realm... I just think that keeping their bodies active also keeps their minds active," said activities and wellness coordinator Laurin Trigg.

Dr. Chhanda Dutta, chief of clinical gerontology at the federal National Institute on Aging, said the main benefits include:

  • Increased endurance through at least 150 minutes of aerobic exercise a week.
  • Strength and minimized muscle deterioration through resistance training every other day.
  • Improved balance to decrease debilitating falls.



Hotel Swimming Pools Need Resistance Fitness Tools for Water Aerobics


Hotels pride themselves on their amenities yet, only the five star hotels provide resistance tools to help you with your fitness goals. Moreover, too many pools keep their swimming pools at a temperature conducive for full immersion swimmers. Yet, less than 10% of the populace can swim more than 3 pool lengths. Hotels need to start marketing warm pools and add fitness tools. Take your workout to the water. Yes, all hotels today have a fitness room, sadly most hotels do not use their biggest asset, their swimming pool as a fitness tool.

      The EZ swimmer seems like a super invention, and this hub about it is very informative. Exercising in water with the EZ swimmer certainly makes sense.
