Fluid Running for Weight Loss

If you’re looking to lose 5 lbs or 50 lbs, Fluid Running is an excellent exercise for weight loss that combines aerobic conditioning with strength training.  Running in deep water burns 30-40% more calories than running on land because water is 800 times denser than air. The energy required to move a body through water is greater than what’s required for moving on land creating higher calorie burn with additional strength benefits.

Fluid Running pretty much saved my life…. I love that it’s a no impact workout that gets your heart rate going! The water is like a cure all for me. I truly believe that my life has changed because of this program. I feel stronger and am healthier than I have ever been. – L.C.
