AquaJogger® Guidelines and Safety
Water Exercise Guidelines and Safety
- Listen to your body. If you experience pain, stop exercising. If the pain continues after you stop exercising, consult a physician. When in doubt, be conservative.
- Know the signs of overexertion: labored breathing, dizziness, loss of coordination, tightness or pain in your chest, nausea or vomiting, and irregularities in your heart rate. If you experience any of these warning signs, stop exercising and get out of the water. Consult a physician before continuing your program.
- It is better to do too little than too much. Work at your own pace.
- Drink water frequently before, during, and after exercise.
Before You Begin
Consult your physician before beginning AquaJoggerÂ® water workouts or any other exercise program. Not all exercises are suitable for all people. You must fully apprise yourself of the risks that may be associated with using these products in the water. Safety must always be a prime consideration and we encourage you to make it a part of your fitness planning. The instructions and advice presented here are not intended as a substitute for medical counseling. The American Medical Association strongly recommends that any individual more than 35 years of age have a complete physical examination before starting an exercise program.
As in all exercise, you must take care to exercise properly and ensure that you are capable of the movement. The AquaJoggerÂ® Water Workout is for adult use only. AquaJoggerÂ® Gear is not certified nor intended to be used as life saving equipment. The buoyancy of the AquaJoggerÂ® belt is not sufficient to float a conscious or unconscious person in the face-up position. You should use care to avoid turning your body upside down in the water while using the AquaJoggerÂ® gear. Inverted use of the AquaJoggerÂ® gear could result in injury.
