Studies have shown that low-impact water-based workouts offer many of the same benefits as regular workouts, but with the added advantage of reduced stress on a person's muscles and joints. Water sports won't exacerbate old injuries and may even prevent new injuries from forming. Most important, no matter your fitness level you can still get a great workout.
If you're looking to workout harder and smarter, the Hydro-Tone Total Fitness System 3 provides higher resistance levels and lets you increase your workout intensity in a safe way. The system, which is used in physical therapy settings and by personal trainers and Olympic-level athletes, includes:
Complete body workout DVD (1)

Cardio and Body Toning
Each portion of the fitness system has been designed to add high levels of resistance and allow users to practice various activities and exercises. Whether your goal is to lose weight, gain strength, or a combination of the two, the Hydro-Tone total fitness system 3 will help you reach your goals in a more efficient manner.
Water aerobics, underwater jogging, and other forms of water-based cardio exercises benefit any person's training by raising their heart rate and pumping blood to the heart more quickly. If weight training is more your style, both bells and boots force users to put more effort into their movements, build strength, and tone the entire body.
The AquaGear Opinion
The AquaGear team recommends this system to anyone searching for a total body workout that's different from the rest. With consistent usage, testers found this set to be a great weight loss tool. The bells and boots were sturdy, and unlike cheap foam weights, they did not fall apart after regular use.
A few testers who were dealing with injuries, and were unable to use traditional weight and cardio machines, felt like they were still able to get a good workout. Senior testers were especially happy to be able to continue exercising and staying fit without the risk of causing damage to their joints. Additionally, testers with bad knees had no trouble using the boots in a slow and controlled manner and many loved the fact that they could continue to run (underwater) and enjoy the same exercises they had before.
The Bottom Line
The Hydro-Tone Total Fitness System is a sturdy, long-lasting, and effective piece of equipment which will give people of all fitness levels the ability to get, or stay, in shape. If you're looking to add resistance to your workout and get fit in the pool this season this system will be the best bang for your buck.
