What’s stopping you from feeling better?
I want to try Aquabike, but…
… the pool water is too cold!
There are two things you should know about Aquabike and the temperature of our local community pools:
- The pools are heated to 80-82 degrees.
- Even if you feel like the heated pools aren’t heated enough for you, exercising in cool water can boost your immune system.
First of all, the community pools are kept a bit warmer during the winter months, however they are setup for lap swimming. That means the water can’t feel like a bath tub, because it’s hard on the swimmers. Still, when you get into anything cooler than the air around you, you’ll only feel the temperature change for a minute. Trust us, you will warm up fast and then you’ll be happy about the water’s temp. It will keep your body from overheating as you exercise.
Second, we recommend that our Aquabikers wear swim shirts to help them adjust to the temperature. You can find them online or in stores like Walmart & Target. (During winter months, we recommend you order them online for a wider selection.) They come in long sleeves, as well as short, and hug your body. They are like a second skin.
Last of all, don’t be afraid of working out in cool water. It’s widely accepted that cold water is good for the immune system and can even boost your body’s natural healing ability. People that workout regularly in cool water don’t have as many sick days. It also boosts your lymphatic system and circulation. You don’t want to miss out on these amazing benefits!
So, go ahead and jump in! Don’t let anything stand in your way of getting in shape! Schedule a class today!
