LAVA Magazine
Aqua jogging has its roots in physical therapy. Athletes or individuals with injury were guided to the pool where a cardiovascular workout could be completed without any hard impact to the muscles, joints and connective tissues. Running in the water provides water resistance and balance challenges so regular athletes started incorporating this form of exercise into their existing cross-training plans. And while aqua jogging is no substitute for running on land, it can be a great addition to your basic routine.
