Total Gym Swim & Surf Workout
Dive into a workout that will transform the tone of your muscles, condition your cardiovascular abilities, and sustain the longevity of your youthfulness! Sound appealing?
Water sports and activities are by far one of the best methods to develop a well-conditioned physique. During swimming, you’re constantly moving to stay afloat – otherwise your going down! This counts as continuous cardio. Plus, water is about 800xs denser than air creating a constant resistance for your muscles to work efficiently and safely. If this isn’t enough to make you want to suit up and jump into a new workout, then maybe the many benefits will get you on board… or on a board!

Swimming is a great activity for mature adults, for rehabbing injuries, and for recovering sore joints since no impact is required.

Swimming allows you to work frequently at a high intensity level without breaking down your body tissues. Basically you can perform tough drills one day and do it again the next day since the body recovers faster in water.
