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.

Fluid Results – Fountain of Youth

With only four training weeks left to go, I added Jennifer’s H2Go program to the end of each Athletics class in hopes of improving my endurance. The many hours in the pool were not in vain. I finished the Marine Corps Marathon in 3:42, which was not only a PR for me (by 22 minutes!), but also a Boston Marathon Qualifying time. As shocking as it may seem to runners (including myself), this was accomplished with only one land run per week!
