The AquaJogger Classic Flotation Belt was the very first water exercise flotation belt, and the most popular and universal product in the AquaJogger product line. The belt suspends the body in deep water, allowing for total body conditioning with no swim skill required. Remember, this is not a life preserver, and should never be used as a safety vest or life preserver.
Total Body Workout
Total body conditioning is the name of the game for the AquaJogger Classic. The Flotation Belt utilizes soft, flexible and durable EVA foam to keep your body suspended upright in deep or shallow water, allowing freedom of movement for all of your limbs. The foam puts your body in a unique forward position, forcing you to fire your abs and core to remain upright. But the real key to the Classic is adding water's natural resistance to your movements - you can increase the effectiveness of similar motions performed on land to help burn fat and tone muscle faster.
Exercises with the AquaJogger Classic are performed statically (standing still). Therefore, this jog belt is very easy to use with no swim skill at all. Because water is the only resistance you work against, the AquaJogger Classic Flotation Belt offers a great low impact exercise alternative that is easy on joints for elderly swimmers or athletes recovering from injury.
Promotes Proper Alignment
Swimmers can also benefit from the AquaJogger Classic. The larger section of foam on the back of the belt naturally guides the body into proper swimming alignment.
The Classic's EVA Foam will not break down in water, and is specially designed to resist salt water, chlorine, etc. With use, the foam will further contour to your unique body shape for a custom, personal fit.
Comfort and Fit
The AquaJogger Classic features a comfortable body-wise design. Its versatile fit makes it a great choice for both men and women, and the elastic belt adjusts to any waist size up to 48”, though you can replace with any larger belt as needed. Remember that the larger section of foam goes on your back, the lesser on the front, and the buckle must lay just in front of the belly button for a proper fit.
The AquaJogger Classic Flotation Belt is available in high quality, durable blue or purple foam, and includes the AquaJogger Classic, an adjustable elastic belt, a workout guide and a DVD.
An included workout guide illustrates exercises and workouts using the AquaJogger Classic, while the DVD video demonstrates these full body workouts in both deep and shallow water.
The foam of the Classic itself weighs only 4.4 ounces.

The AquaGear Opinion
The AquaJogger Classic Flotation Belt's features a very comfortable foam the can be worn for hours. The Classic's shape tilts the body forward forcing you to slightly engage your core muscles to remain vertical. As long as the Classic is properly placed with buckle clipped just in front of the belly button, the Flotation Belt will not ride up; the wideness of the lower ribcage holds the AquaJogger Classic Flotation Belt in place. The Classic gives you excellent positioning positioning in the water, and allows for a multitude of exercises.
