Shallow Water Exercises

Shallow water exercises, also known as aquatic exercises, are physical activities that take place in water shallow enough for the participant to touch the pool's bottom. They are low-impact and ideal for people with joint pain, arthritis, or injuries. The resistance of water increases muscle strength and endurance and can improve cardiovascular fitness, balance, and coordination. Additionally, the soothing properties of water promote relaxation and reduce stress levels, making it an ideal exercise for those looking to de-stress and unwind. Overall, shallow water exercises are a great way to improve overall fitness while reducing the risk of injury and providing a low-impact, relaxing workout environment.


When performing shallow water exercises, it's important to wear appropriate swimwear and footwear and to start slowly, gradually increasing the intensity of the exercise over time. Some common shallow water exercises include walking or running in water, as well as leg lifts, squats, and lunges, which can be performed while standing on one leg or holding onto the pool edge for balance.
