Fluid Running for Weight Loss
Fluid Running is an excellent exercise for weight loss that combines aerobic conditioning with strength training. Using the Fluid Running System, you can burn up to 40% more calories than land running.
Calorie Burning Machine
Every movement is resisted by the 360 degree pressure of the water, increasing the number of muscles recruited, the effort expended, and the calorie burn.
The repeat High-Intensity (HIIT) intervals (or Tabata intervals) create the EPOC effect (increased post-exercise oxygen consumption), in which your metabolism remains elevated for 24-36 hours post-workout, increasing the total calorie burn from a single workout.
“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.”
