From Fitness Magazine

Are you planning a vacation to a tropical paradise this winter?  Perhaps you are already looking at last year’s bathing suit and are wondering how you are going to fit into it next summer?  The winter seems long and dreary, but Summer will be here before you know it.  Don’t wait for New Years Day to make a resolution to get in shape.  Indoor pools provide a perfect venue for you to get your low-impact workout program jump-started.  In this post from Fitness Magazine, a wonderfully simple yet effective workout is presented to help you shed those unwanted winter pounds, and to prepare to turn heads at the swimming pool this summer.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

Toning Water Exercises

How It Works

“This water workout burns tons of calories but feels like play,” says Greg Moe, a master trainer for Rough-Fit outdoor fitness programs in Tustin, California, who created these insanely trimming moves (just see what they do for your abs!) exclusively for FITNESS. Simply treading water vigorously can zap 11 calories a minute, same as a six-mile-per-hour run. “Plus, water’s continuous resistance forces you to engage more muscle fibers through a larger range of motion,” says Moe, so you’ll firm from every angle.

Perform as many reps of each exercise as you can in 30 seconds, rest, then repeat. (As you get fitter, aim for 45 to 60 seconds.) Do this workout on nonconsecutive days and emerge with a body to dive for!

What You’ll Need: A beach ball (the larger the ball, the tougher the workout)
