Summer Is Almost Here

water aerobicsToday is May 1st, not quite summer according to the calendar, but in Florida that is close enough. If you have not been taking advantage of our “Sunshine State” status, now is a great time to start. Water aerobics offers an alternative way to exercise for people who might otherwise have difficulty. It reduces the risk of injury and makes many body movements possible for people who could not otherwise do them. This includes people who have recently undergone bariatric surgery.

In the Daytona Beach area, the Daytona State College Aquatic Center offers instructor led water aquatics classes in their pool facility. If you are looking for a water aerobics class in your area, a good place to start might be with a Google query. Try something like, “water aerobics classes near me” and see what you can find out.

Our practice recognizes the vital importance of physical activity and exercise in weight loss and weight control. Water aerobics may be one option that is well suited to your needs.  Bariatric surgery or weight-loss surgery is another option open to some patients. However, even after an appropriate weight-loss surgery, it is critical that a program of exercise and nutritional balance is started and followed. Our professional staff offers both weight-loss surgery and non-surgical approaches to weight loss. You can read our past article about this excellent form of exercise at Water Aerobics.
