Information & FAQs of Aqua Aerobics

Why Aqua Aerobics?

The fitness value of aqua aerobics is fantastic. It conditions the heart, lungs, all major muscle groups, builds muscle endurance and strength, burns fat & inches.

Water provides natural resistance – the harder or faster you try to move or push through it, the more it will resist you. As 90 per cent of your body is supported by water, there is a negligible injury risk because there is little stress on joints and ligaments. It's a great activity even for those who can't swim! Water exercise is probably the best choice for those who are overweight and out of shape. It's a great choice for those who have arthritis, knee or lower-back problems as well as the pregnant exerciser. It's ideal for the older exerciser. As water is gentle on the body, it's used for injury rehabilitation. Denser stronger bone, improvement of health conditions such as blood pressure, asthma & diabetes are some other benefits. And most importantly, it's such a fun workout!

FAQs

Aqua-bells, fins, hand-paddles, inflatable rubber mittens and Styrofoam models are accessories that can be used by the exerciser at a later stage.

Swimwear is most appropriate. But some may be more comfy wearing tights/shorts/ tracks & a t-shirt, which is fine too.

No. You can mix & match timings & days too. Note that men are restricted to the men's timings only.

Absolutely. Depending on a person's particulars (age, health, problems, goals, etc.) the Instructor will make modifications for each individual's member, & help them implement the same.

No just a normal, healthy & balanced diet. More info will be given upon enrolment.

If it's the first time you're enrolling into the Aqua Aerobics programme, speak to any of our Trainers in the Gym/ Hub/ Workshop/ the Aqua Aerobics facility. They'll guide you through the process.

Term fees are to be paid when the member comes in to enroll.

Aqua Aerobics makes for a complete workout. You don't need to take on any other form of exercise with it, unless you've been specifically advised to, or you'd like to hasten the process of achieving your goals.

We have a system of Make-up classes, which will be explained to you upon joining.

Diet Guide

About Weight Loss

The right way in which to lose weight is not by dieting, but by eating the right kinds of food, coupled with the right amount of exercise. Diets (& especially crash diets) are not only ineffective, but can also be extremely harmful.

Recommended Dietary Changes (Healthy) food for thought...

  • Remove the skin from chicken, fish & meat before cooking. These skins contain a high level of fat.
  • Did you know that it takes your brain 20 minutes to realize that your stomach is full? So, if you eat slowly, putting your fork down after each bite, you'll become full after eating less food.
  • Eat out of a smaller plate- you'll tend to feel you're eating more than you really are!
  • Cut down on milk & milk products such as yogurt, cheese, cottage cheese, ice cream, fresh cream, etc. If you must consume the same, make sure they are made of "No fat" milk, which is easily available.
  • Eat more carbohydrates. Ideally, 58% of our daily food intake should be in the form of carbohydrates, but mostly in the form of fruits & vegetables. Consume less starch, e.g. rice, bread, potatoes, chapattis, & pasta. Switch to unpolished rice, wholemeal or multigrain bread, chapattis made of nachni, johar or bajra flour (not white or wheat flour). Consume only one starch per meal, not more.
  • Avoid fried foods. Use cooking methods such as boiling, baking, steaming & grilling instead.
  • Keep these foods in check: butter, mayonnaise, whipped cream, cakes, chocolates, desserts, salad dressing, Indian sweets.
  • It's interesting to know that by cutting down on fats & increasing your carbohydrates, you can eat more food without increasing your caloric intake! This is because: 1 gram of fat= 9 calories, whereas 1 gram of carhohydrates= 4 calories.
  • Cut down on meats. Most of us eat 2- 3 times more protein than our bodies require.
  • Cut down on aerated drinks. Avoid juices. Drink more plain, room temperature water through the day.
  • Avoid alcohol as it is high on calories. 1 ounce has about 200 calories.
  • Eat to the extent where you are satisfied, but not stuffed! Most of us have this tendency to over-eat without even realizing it.
  • Of course, changing old habits is not easy, so be patient. Moreover, be honest with yourself.

Upon Joining

Welcome to Aqua Aerobics & congratulations on making this commitment to fitness!

…Before Class …. Many aqua exercisers like the look and feel of swimwear, but if you're not comfortable, get into shorts, tights, tracks & a T-shirt instead.

Come in a few minutes before class time so that you can get changed & settled. Match your position and alignment with the instructor's: Are your knees bent? Is your abdomen held in? Technique & form is very important.

Don't eat about 2 hours before class. If you're very hungry before class, you could eat a light carbohydrate snack before you come in, but make sure you keep a gap of at least 1 1/2 hours between your snack and your workout.

It is important not to let your self get dehydrated, so when you need a drink of water during class, get one. Water will be supplied to you in class, but you may bring your water if you want to.

Warm up…. The first 5-7 minutes of your class is designed to warm-up the body before working it. A combination of stretches and limbering exercises get the muscles and heart ready to work. Be sure to get to the class on time so that you can get the benefit of the warm-up. If you are late, warm-up on your own before you join the class in progress.

…. Cardio Segment….. The goal of the cardio segment is to raise your heart rate to its target and keep it there for approximately 25-30 minutes. You'll be shown how to figure out your target heart range and monitor how you are doing.

You will constantly be given demonstration with each and every move that is performed, along with modifications to meet each individual's requirement, be it a health problem or specific goal.

….Muscle Toning… The purpose of the muscle toning segment is to tighten, strengthen and even reshape your muscles. Try to make sure your form is correct, paying special attention to body alignment. If you're not sure where you're supposed to fill the movement, ask your instructor.

This segment also corrects postural deviations, e.g. rounded, droopy shoulders, or a forward pelvic tilt.

The instructor may correct your position. This isn't criticism; it is an aid to help you get the most out of each exercise.

….Cool Down…. The cool-down at the end of class brings your heart rate back to normal and helps you stretch and relax the muscles you have worked so hard. This is important because leaving the muscles in a contracted state instead of stretching them could cause stiffness and even muscle cramps later. Stay until the end of class and give yourself the gift of those last few relaxing minutes.

Odds ‘n' ends….

You'll get an ID card on the first day of your class from the Instructor. Be sure to bring it to class whenever you come in. Without it, you may be denied a class.

You'll get the most out of your workouts with 2-3 days classes a week.

If your goal is to lost weight, combine regular aerobic exercise with a sensible diet that limits calorie intake without depriving you of the essential nutrients you need.

Our website www.bodyart.in will give you very comprehensive info on the same. Do browse through; you can hit ‘print' on all your pages.

Booking a Make-Up Class-

In case you miss a class, it can be made up in another batch timing provided:

  • It is made up during the same term.
  • You take specific prior permission from the Management. Call us, or speak to your Instructor, who will get Admin to call you & confirm the same.

Note: After make-up has been arranged, it cannot be altered or cancelled for any reason whatsoever. A missed make-up class cannot be made-up again.

Booking A Make Up on our website is not available to our Aqua Aerobic members. It is only for our Workshop members.

Keep track of your progress. Check on your weight & measurements on a monthly basis. If you're coming in 3 times a week, & combining your workouts with the eating plan we recommend, you should be losing at the rate of 1-1.5” (or more) per area, per month.
