Water training is an excellent way to train the core stabilizing muscles and limit or eliminate joint loading. Water training allows the athlete to experience multi-directional resistance that is adjustable at every moment of the movement experience.
Aging/ Fragile and Obese population
For those with bone, muscle, or joint troubles, the warmth, buoyancy, and resistance of the water challenges the body while easing strain on problematic areas. Over a period of time, people notice a decrease in pain, improved daily function, and improved perceived quality of life.
People with Arthritis

Exercising in water is ideal for pregnant women because the water’s buoyancy requires you to support only 50 percent of your body weight, it reduces the risk of stress-related injuries, and the compression of the water is soothing on joints and muscles that are stressed by the added bulk of your pregnancy. The water’s temperature also keeps you from overheating during your workout.
