Exercising in Water to Lose Weight

Featured on NBC’s The Biggest Loser, the HydroWork exercise.

Exercising in the pool has proven to be an effective means to lose weight. Exercising in water to lose weight can be extremely effective for obese and overweight patients. Statistics show that a person generally burns two times more calories per minute in the water than on land. When standing chest deep in water, the body is 80% weightless, bearing only 20% of its weight. This weightlessness helps with exercises and movements that could otherwise be too difficult.


An underwater environment reduces pressure on joints, allowing patients to perform exercises and movements they are not able to on land. Patients with balance issues enjoy exercising in water as there is no fear of injury due to falling.

Below are the benefits of joining aqua workout training at Palomino Body Shop:

•Burn more calories per minute than land exercise
•Decreased pain
•Increased strength and mobility
•Helps to regain range of motion and endurance
•Improved balance
•Reduce swelling.

You will always feel good, cool, lighter and refreshed after each workout.
