Fluid Running for Fitness

Looking to increase cardio endurance, tone muscle, get faster, stronger and more fit?  Fluid Running provides all of those benefits in one workout. Running in deep water gives you all the endurance benefits of running on land plus the additional benefits of strength and toning because muscles are required to work harder in water than on land.  Water is 800 times denser than air requiring the body to engage the core, arms, glutes and legs to power through water without the harmful pounding on joints and tissue that can come from land running. Old or young, experienced with fitness or just beginning, Fluid Running offers a comprehensive, full body workout that can be modified for everyone’s fitness level.
