The theory of a water aerobics workout is the same as other aerobic activity; you are aiming to get your heart rate elevated and keep it there for at least twenty minutes. The instructor will usually employ choreography and music as in other aerobics classes, but you could also find yourself working with equipment like wrist weights, kickboards or water dumbbells.

Not only is this a safe program for many who might not otherwise be able to participate in most aerobic classes, but a water aerobics class is just a fun way to get in shape in general.
