Tread Lightly @ YMCA of Martha's Vineyard
Sep 27 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

If you’re looking for a challenging aerobic activity that spares your joints, join us for some deep water treading. When you tread water, you create surface-area pressure; your abdominals and the muscles of your hips, back and chest, and even your feet and hands, are all recruited to perform the hard work of pushing back against the water and maintaining your body’s vertical position in such an unstable environment. If you tire too quickly to keep your head above the surface, try wearing Flotation Belts (which will be provided). This is ideal for anyone with lower back issues, knee or hip replacements who wants to work their heart and increase lung capacity.

Tread Lightly @ YMCA of Martha's Vineyard
Oct 4 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

If you’re looking for a challenging aerobic activity that spares your joints, join us for some deep water treading. When you tread water, you create surface-area pressure; your abdominals and the muscles of your hips, back and chest, and even your feet and hands, are all recruited to perform the hard work of pushing back against the water and maintaining your body’s vertical position in such an unstable environment. If you tire too quickly to keep your head above the surface, try wearing Flotation Belts (which will be provided). This is ideal for anyone with lower back issues, knee or hip replacements who wants to work their heart and increase lung capacity.
