Apr 29, 2016 · 30-Minute Indo-Row Workout

Try this Indo-Row workout from Meg! If you haven’t used our Indo-Row machines in the Multipurpose Studio, take a group fitness class first to learn how they work. For this workout, start with the 5:00 warm-up then move to the cardio workout and end with a 5:00 cool down and stretch. And, remember to focus on your posture and long reach.

Mar 2, 2016 · February Fitness Challenge Results

swimCongratulations to the 25 members who tracked their swim distances during the month of February. They logged a total of 556,775 yards, or 337.4 miles in the pool! That is 36 miles more than were logged in February 2015 (and the extra day this year didn’t help too much since the pool closed early one day due to the blizzard!) That is the distance of driving from Rochester to Dubuque, IA…and BACK! Nice job Team!

Jan 19, 2015 · Come on in – the water is fine!

DAHLC-8011The popularity of using water for exercise is growing by leaps and bounds.  Exercising in the water can provide a challenging, yet comfortable workout for the body. People are realizing there are many benefits to working out in the water. Here are a few reasons to #getmoved in the pool: 

  • It is easy on the joints. Exercising in waist deep water means only 50% of the body’s weight needs to be supported. This greatly reduces the impact on joints during exercise.
  • It is good for the heart. Warm water exercise reduces blood pressure, and heart rates in the water are generally 12-15 beats per minute lower than on land while performing the same activity at the same intensity level.
  • It is an efficient way to move. Water walking or jogging burns more calories than walking or jogging on land.
  • It provides resistance in every direction. No matter which way you move, working out in the pool promotes muscular endurance and tone.
  • It is comfortable. During a water workout, water continually cools the body, making it a comfortable form of exercise.
  • It promotes increased flexibility. In the pool, joint mobility is enhanced by the lessened effects of gravity.

We hope to see you in the water soon!
