Aquastrength - now available in NZ & Australia April 07, 2015 00:00
We are excited to announce that Aquastrength equipment and programs are now available exclusively in New Zealand and Australia!
Our goal is to bring you the most advanced aquatic programming based on Dr Rick McAvoy's, 20 years of aquatic fitness, conditioning and rehabilitation research and experience, combined with the most revolutionary aquatic exercise equipment on the market today.
Dr Rick McAvoy has dedicated his career advancing the field of aquatics and changing how people view aquatic exercise and fitness. Historically, people seemed to turn to the pool as a last resort. However there is more and more research coming out demonstrating that water training is just as effective, if not better, than land based training. So it makes sense that training in the water should be the first option not the last resort.
What makes our Aquastrength programming unique is that we are not just taking land based exercises and putting them in the water, which a lot of aquatic programs out there tend to do. Our bodies tend to function so much differently in the water than they do on land because of the waters properties of buoyancy, viscosity, drag, density and pressure, meaning it is crucial to follow exercise programs designed especially for the water.
Water is 800 times more supportive than air, but can be up to 15 times more resistant, giving you the best of both worlds. Water functions in three dimensions which is how we move day to day and when performing sports specific activities.The water does not discriminate. It is appropriate for all ages and abilities. If you are looking to improve flexibility, strength, weight loss, balance, speed, power, agility, recovery or compliment your land based program with cross training, then the water is the place for you.
Water is the great equalizer. The harder you push, the harder the water will push back, giving you total control and making it a very safe and effective way to train.
Another way that the water is more effective than land is that is very easy to train multiple body muscle groups and body parts at the same time. This allows for a better balanced, holistic workout.
Aquastrength is committed to providing a complete aquatic exercise system. It will change the way you feel about aquatic fitness and training.
