Former IBF World Middle-Weight Boxing Champion
EVERY journalist or client I meet always asks: "What is the best exercise program to lose weight, get fit and look younger?" My answer is 'Kun-Aqua' – it will change how you sound, feel, look and communicate.Water resistance is better than lifting weights. It takes the strain off the joints, so the body moves fluidly.
You burn more calories than traditional exercising whilst developing your ideal body type. It will improve posture and balance – two major factors that affect how well you age.
It's an exercise of breath awareness for smooth meditative movements to improve your mental state. That brings attention to posture and balance, an essential fitness component we lose as we age.
You will improve cholesterol levels, strengthen bones, keep blood pressure in check, help preserve brain function and resist age-related memory loss and lower your risk for several diseases.
Exercisers who use popular weight-lifting machines (often used by older exercisers) sell themselves short of full muscle development. Machines don't recruit stabilising muscles like resistance training in the water since they usually require you to move a load in just one plane of motion. They go up and down, front to back, or side to side. The only action on the Bench Press machine is straight up and down while performing the exercise.
Midlifers must adapt their training exercise to focus more on their overall health than their performance ability. Working around any physical restraints or injuries they may have.
Back and neck pain is very common, and statistics have shown that 80% of people will experience back pain at some point. KUN-AQUA is more likely to improve lower back pain than traditional exercise. The water movements encompass endurance, strength, balance, and mobility to elicit the most significant muscle activation of the entire three layers of the intrinsic back muscles.
Underwater training provides progressive overload to the skeletal system, promoting muscle mass gains for everyone. There is also a reduction in body fat, particularly visceral fat. For older exercisers, there are significant improvements in physical function, pain management, and vitality.
