Can You Sweat In The Water?

If it is possible then I was during class tonight. I decided to give a new class at the gym a try, and attempted my first water aerobics class. It was a much tougher workout than I was expecting! I could actually feel it during class, a couple of the exercises left me short of breath, and I'm sore tonight. BUT... my knees didn't hurt at all during the class. After 4 years of rugby, both knees are shot and hurt no matter what I do and what kind of shape I'm in. But water aerobics didn't bother them at all. I think I'm going to try to make this a regular part of my getting healthy routine.

(I just wish that my class environment was like the one in the photo above, I'd go everyday, probably twice a day!)

The Y has such great classes! It is so good that you take that time for yourself. It is not only good for your body, but for your mind too. I wish I could squeeze a yoga class or something into my hectic day. Hopefully when BB gets a little bigger. I give you so much credit.

Sounds like a great class. And, yes, you can sweat in the water! Glad you had such a good workout.
