Be careful, shaky! In the new yoga trend Floatfit, you do the exercises on the water, but you only go to bathe when you lose balance. Are you still doing yoga or have you already jumped on the Floatfit train?This new trend is entering more and more German swimming pools and inspires water rates and fitness fans at the same time. We reveal what this new aqua sporthas to offer.
HOW DOES FLOATFIT WORK?
Floatfit falls into the category HIIT (high-intensity interval training), which means that you do a lot of strenuous exercises at short intervals and burn a lot of calories. Instead of spending time on solid ground, the exercises are done on the water: a robust mat, which floats on the water surface, a so-called aquabase. The mat is anchored with cords so that you can not get away from it, but it is far from easy to maintain the balance during the movements. The exercises are, by the way, inspired by the classic CrossFit, so you have to create squats, burpees, and planks on the Aquabase.
HOW DOES An FLOATFIT SESSION BE OUT?
Most of the time, a float fit course takes between 30 and 45 minutes, but you have to count on it to get more often in the water – so swimming clothing is practical. After a short warm-up phase, the cross-body exercises are carried out, which means that the entire body is needed (therefore, Floatfit is also an ideal whole body training ). They are carried out at intervals, with a total of about 20 minutes of running before a little splashing in the water and ending with stretching exercises.
WHAT IS FLOATFIT?
What's more, Floatfit is always the same: As an HIIT training, the sport burns excess pounds not only during the workout, but also hours later – the so-called afterburner effect. If you want to lose weight quickly, you can definitely try this with Floatfit. At the same time, this Aqua Sports sports numerous muscle groups throughout the body as well as your endurance, flexibility, and coordination. Your attitude also improves significantly, not to mention your balance. Especially this is promoted during this challenging workout. The air-filled aquabase is intended to be hingeless. A real all-round program for young and old alike!
