AquaJogger® - The Story
In the Beginning…
The AquaJogger® water exercise buoyancy belt was originally developed as a water rehabilitation tool for pre and post surgery patients and world class athletes recovering from injury in Eugene, Oregon. This unique flotation device soon captured the attention of other athletes around the world who not only found the AquaJogger valuable in recovery from injury but as a extraordinary training tool in maintaining the high levels of fitness demanded by competitive sports. The AquaJogger® became the key that opened the door to the world of impact free deep water exercise and soon athletes began incorporating water workouts into their regular training regimens.
Although athletes were among the first to recognize the advantages of deep water, they were not the only early benefactors. The popularity of land based aerobics was bringing high impact to the muscles and joints of people of all ages. Along with the benefits of aerobic activity came muscle soreness, stress fractures and aching joints resulting in flagging motivation and injury. People turned to special fitness shoes with air cells and gels and air pumps to cushion the impact but the effects of gravity were winning.
Meanwhile the AquaJogger story continues…..back at the pool, the AquaJogger® and deep water were taking the jolt out of exercise. Deep water aerobics opens up a new world of fitness for people of all ages and at all levels of fitness. The forgiving water environment is not only effective, but it’s fun and has inspired deep and shallow water classes to start up all over the world. This is how it works. Suspended up to your neck in deep water with the AquaJogger®, you can breathe normally like you do on land as you move through the water.
Your feet don’t touch the bottom of the pool so there is no impact and the water provides resistance in all directions that you control by the speed of your movements. Since your body is submerged, the hydrostatic pressure around your body improves cardiac function, lowers blood pressure, assists the body in tissue healing and sets in motion a host of other benefits. Enjoy almost any activity in the water that you traditionally do on land, including running, cross country skiing, aerobics, and dance moves. You are limited only by your imagination.
But the AquaJogger® story doesn’t end there… Now there is a family of innovative water exercise products that will help you take water fitness to a new level.
