How the Fluid Running System Works
Deep Water Running Reinvented
You’ve seen “aqua jogging” videos. You may have even taken a class. Forget all that. Fluid Running is a new approach to a classic workout. Before you get in the pool, you’ll learn the 10 running inspired movements that will be the foundation for all of the Fluid Running Workouts. You get immediate access after purchase.
Note: The water needs to be deep enough so that your feet do not touch the pool bottom when you are running in the upright position. We typically say it should be about 5 inches shorter than you, so if you’re 5’5″, it will need to be 5′. If you are 6′, it will need to be 5’7″.
Once you get the equipment, you’ll install the Fluid Running App, download the included workouts, and pair your new Bluetooth, waterproof headphones.
Notes: (1) iPhone or Android required, but the phone stays pool side. (2) Use of the tether is optional, so don’t worry if you don’t have something to hook it up to. (3) The belt will fit waist sizes 26 to 52″.
Preview a Fluid Running Workout
Get a better idea of the type of workout you’ll be doing. Coach Jennifer will call upon the different movements you learned in the videos and motivate you through a Fluid Running workout. Each and every workout can be done by anyone, regardless of ability, or injury (check with doctor first). Play the video to get a better idea, or read our article on Understanding Fluid Running Workouts, and be sure to check out our list of our ever expanding workouts.
Note: These are audio workouts, so it’s not necessary to have access to a screen while you do the workout.
At the Pool
When you go to the pool, you should pick the workout you want to do, and then put it on pause. Put your phone with your towel and water bottle (you’ll need this), and then strap on the belt, tether, and headphones. When in the water, you can just push the play button on the headphone to start the workout.
Note: If you are doing this at a public pool, you can strap to a ladder, or a lane line, and lap swimmers will be able to share the lane with you. Check with the pool if any questions about available time or best location.
