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.

“My patients have adopted Fluid Running and they’ve been raving about it. Often times they can’t do aerobic exercise very well due to their medical issues, and Fluid Running works great for that group.”

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!
