By Emma Price in Swim - 31/03/2014

  • Exercising in warm water has been proven to help decrease anxiety


  • Water provides resistance and support at the same time, making it a great calorie burner without the impact that land-based activities can have on our bodies


  • The water supports your joints as it eliminates much of your body weight


  • The hydrostatic pressure all over your body helps stimulate blood flow to your muscles which means they are getting more oxygen and nutrients


  • Water-based exercise is an excellent form of rehabilitation after injury
