Have you ever wanted to wear a fin, as you get some exercise, in an underwater environment? I know that I haven’t, but there is a big wave, no pun intended, of people flocking to California for this very experience. In a fancy hotel in San Diego, California, you can sign up for a fitness class, which is one that you have never seen anything like before! Sure, these classes aren’t going to be the first kind of water exercising classes out there. I’m sure that you have been by your local recreational center when they have water aerobics. I have never tried a water aerobics class, as they are honestly always filled up with senior citizens. I’m all for our elders being able to get fit in any way they choose but I’ve always stayed out of the water and opted for some free weights.
I have never thought that I would appear cool to others, if I was 30-40 years younger than the rest of the recreational center patrons. What is nice about this combination of mermaid tails and aerobics is that it looks like it is made for a younger generation. I mean, honestly, could you imagine a bunch of senior citizens with mermaid tails on? I suppose you are only as old as you feel but I just have trouble picturing the elderly wanting to put a costume on, being afraid of being judged. However, I imagine that there are some elderly who can’t wait to try this, more power to them!
If you do visit San Diego and check into this hotel, be sure that you are on a good sleeping schedule. I only mention the sleep schedule thing because it appears as if these new classes start out at 8am! Definitely made for the morning crowd, you won’t have to worry about spending an arm and a leg for a class like this one, it looks like it is only $20. If you have ever been to California for a time, you know that twenty dollars is a very good price for anything, let alone a fancy fitness class.
One more thing, there are tails available for men to take these classes, as well. I don’t how many of you male readers want to strap on a mermaid tail when you exercise, but it is cool that this hotel has kept everyone included in their activities. Getting some exercise done in water, has as ton of added health benefits. For one, the resistance that you will be facing, being partially underwater, makes you add more strength to complete movement. The people who say that swimming is one of the most beneficial exercises out there can’t be wrong, right? I don’t think that they are, there is a certain level of work you put in when you get in the water to exercise that is tough to match anywhere else.
The classes last about 45 minutes, which is a great length. You can’t expect to sign up for a fitness class and want it to be more than an hour. All of us can’t expect to be able to train for such a long period of time, you could end up wanting to vomit by the end of it. Also, you aren’t getting a workout that is too short, where you feel like you haven’t fully trained yourself.
