Get Fit and Stay Cool in the Pool

Things are heating up as we enter the dog days of summer. It can be easy to feel lethargic when temperatures are rising. It’s important to stay hydrated and cool while you get in a sweat during this season! One great way to chill out while you work out is performing exercises in a pool.

Exercising in the water offers some excellent advantages. Your body weighs less in the water, which makes performing fitness moves easier on your joints and improves your mobility. It’s also a way to keep your body temperature lower during an outdoor workout — which is so important as the heat continues to rise.

We’ve got five moves for you to try the next time you dive in! Check out some video demonstrations below.
