Take your workout to the water!

Possibly the world’s perfect exercise, water workouts provide a highly-effective, low-impact way to burn calories, build muscle, improve flexibility, and have some fun.

International Swimming Hall of Fame board member and world masters champion Jane Katz uses a holistic approach to lead you to total body fitness, offering soothing and strengthening programs of exercises drawn from yoga, Pilates, tai chi, and popular land sports like skiing and golf. There are also high-intensity challenges and instructions for deep-water running and cross-training for athletes. Each exercise is accompanied by a simple drawing and step-by-step instructions for doing the move correctly. Programs for twenty-, thirty- and forty-five-minute workouts, including breathing exercises, warm ups and cool downs, are laid out to make it easy to dive right in. Individual exercises can also be combined to make a complete workout that is right for you.

Dr. Katz uses toys and accessories, from old-fashioned kickboards to flashy fins, to make every workout seem like play. Full of suggestions to keep your program exciting and fresh, Your Water Workout is a complete guide to working out in the water for lifelong fitness.
