Who wouldn’t do aqua fitness?
For healthy people it is no problem to attend aquafitness courses. In case of any kind of illness, a doctor should always be consulted before attending an aquafitness course, so that possible risks can be excluded. Especially patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases should definitely talk to their doctor before starting aquafitness.
This is especially necessary due to the increased pressure caused by the water. The cardiovascular system has to fight against the external pressure and is therefore more loaded than in the air. Depending on the type of illness and only after consultation with your doctor can aquafitness be performed.
If the risk of worsening is too high, aquafitness should be avoided. A general cardiac insufficiency, severe cardiac arrhythmia, very high blood pressure or pain radiating from the chest to the arms (angina pectoris) can prevent a visit to the swimming pool. External illnesses such as open wounds and skin diseases should first be completely cured before taking part in an aqua fitness course.
In the water, wounds can become infected and worsen. Inflammation can become established and severely disturb the healing process. Epilepsy and severe asthma are other diseases, so participation in aquafitness is not recommended.
