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?
