Aqua in Hawaii (in my mind)

When I do aqua fitness in the pool at my gym, I pretend I am in Hawaii. I’m lucky enough to have an outdoor pool with a view of palm trees.  Enjoy the water workout in your pool while you let your mind drift off to an exotic location. Then aqua becomes a work out for your body and soul.

How to Make Water Burn

Water and fire do not mix . . . unless you are talking about burning up calories doing Aqua Fitness.  Water aerobics helps you to expend energy doing cardio without feeling overheated. Even if you sweat, you do not notice it! Here is a great blog post on losing weight with aqua fitness. I recently started this blog, Aqua Awesome, to give information and inspiration for those doing aqua.

Nobody looks this happy after shopping . . . maybe it’s because she knows she can now go to the gym.

Muscle Woman

Look at the muscle that pops when she flexes her arm. From her elabaorate costume, it looks like she is performing in a show. It was so unusual for woman to work out this much that they were considered an oddity to be on display. I wonder what she would look like with her hair down in an average outfit.  I wonder what her life was like. Beautiful strong woman.

Row, Row, Row

Rowing machines really haven’t changed that much since the 1920s when this young woman worked out. All she needs is some earbuds or some speakers from Amazon to make it less boring. I use this small Bose speaker with bluetooth for your phone. It works great and it very portable. Unfortunately my daughter loved it, too. So I had to buy a second one. Check out the legs on this woman. They are long and lean.  I guess models were tall back then, too. Some of us won’t ever have model legs, but we can all get to the gym and work out.

Eat right.  Work out.  Stay healthy.
