AQUA EX­ER­CISE

India Today - - SIMPLY KOLKATA -

ON SU­PER HOT and sunny days, one doesn’t feel like hit­ting the gym. While most peo­ple opt for swim­ming, it isn’t the only form of ex­er­cise that won’t have you melt into a pud­dle of sweat. “Aqua aer­o­bics pro­vides the same train­ing ben­e­fits as aer­o­bic ex­er­cises but with less wear and tear on your mus­cles and joints,” says Pal­lab Biswas, trainer at So­lace Day Spa and Well­ness Cen­tre.

But that doesn’t mean it’s less ef­fec­tive. “De­spite what feels like a cush­ion­ing ef­fect, wa­ter pro­vides 12 times more re­sis­tance than air. When done steadily and vig­or­ously, aqua aer­o­bics ben­e­fits your en­tire body. It in­creases aer­o­bic en­durance, im­proves flex­i­bil­ity, and tones the body as well,” says Biswas. “So­lace also con­ducts per­son­alised aqua ther­apy ses­sions that help pa­tients with in­juries and pains in joints, lig­a­ments, mus­cles, ten­dons, etc and whose range of move­ment is re­stricted,” adds Biswas.

The one stop well­ness cen­tre is equipped with a spa and a small store sell­ing or­ganic pro­duce as well as a health food cafe called Cafe Or­gan­ica, that you could stop by af­ter a stren­u­ous ses­sion. What bet­ter way to hy­drate in sum­mer than freshly made cold pressed juices?
