If the favorite dad in your life is a fitness buff (or wishes that he could be one), set him up with some of our favorite pool fitness equipment. Not only can he get a full workout without leaving home, unlike at the gym, the whole family can be together for the workout.
For endurance and cardiovascular training, few things are better than swimming. It’s a great way to get a full body workout in a cool, fun environment. With the ESPN Swimming Pool Challenge, he can keep track of his lap times. Pool Fitness Jogger Belts and Ankle Cuffs add challenge to running in the water.
The great thing about strength training in the pool is that the weights themselves aren’t heavy. Rather than using heavy weights on dry land, which can slip and cause injuries, water weights use the resistance of the water pressure. And because your body moves differently in water than it does on dry land, water workouts are easier on joints.
Challenge the whole family to join Dad’s water fitness fun. Your family can have a great time getting in great shape together!
