Now we can say it: summer is approaching! Why not take advantage of sport to keep moving while having fun? The water courses, in fact, make it possible to lower the temperature of the body and therefore to better withstand the heat, as well as reducing the force of gravity and the load on the joints; but there are also exciting indoor trainings, essential for starting new sports (such as surfing) in total safety before “jumping” into the sea.
Gympass, the largest corporate wellbeing platform in the world, has identified 5 activities among its partner centers to carry out in and out of the water to feel already in the summer:
A new water fitness system that allows you to recover your fitness in a short time! Aquatime provides hydrobiking in individual cabins with 22 ozone hydromassage jets. In addition to the massage generated by movement in the water, the jets perform a draining and detoxifying action on the skin of the legs, taking care of the body from the ankles to the waist and producing important effects in shaping the body. An optimal sport also to fight cellulite!

Aqua Pole Gym
For those wishing to dare, there is also the Aqua Pole Gym, which, as the name suggests, consists of pole dance practiced in the water, complete with a pole immersed in the pool. It is an aquatic workout that involves the body as a whole, allowing you to slim the arms, tone and make the abdomen more sculpted. Muscles always in tension that defy both gravity and water resistance, guarantee real muscle strengthening and toning sessions during which you can burn up to 500 calories.

It looks like a dream but it is not. For the uninitiated, mermaiding is an aquatic discipline that has distant origins (born in the early 1900s), is based on the typical wavy movements of the mermaid and consists of swimming wearing a beautiful tail. In this way, the training of arms, abdomen, buttocks and legs is much more intense and effective. This activity combines breathing and relaxation techniques with different swimming styles, thus improving the relationship with water and stimulating the aerobic function of the heart.

If in the last five years rowing has attracted more and more women’s attention, in the wake of the victory of the Italians Federica Cesarini and Valentina Rodini at the Tokyo Olympics, today the latest trend is indoor rowing: a discipline that blends rowing and fitness in a lesson in which we all row together, just like aboard a boat, but to the beat of music and sitting on a tool called a rowing machine. The result is an engaging group workout, suitable for all needs, which tones harmoniously, improves coordination and allows you to burn a lot of calories!

Water sports are fantastic, but also tiring and complex because they require strength to row, balance to remain standing while riding the wave and power in the legs so as not to give in to the swings. It is therefore necessary to be well trained to practice them, because if this were not the case, the risk is not even being able to get to the peak!
Here is a new workout dedicated to water sports lovers: surf training, an indoor course that allows you to simulate activity in the sea with a series of exercises on the board created specifically to activate the core and stabilize the muscles by involving the whole body.
