Boost your AquaFitness sessions by increasing your muscle strength with weighted bands! Weighted bands allow you to work on your muscle strength and to increase the resistance of your Aquafitness movements by adding weight around your ankles or wrists. Perfect for static exercises, they use your muscles more for a vigorous and high-intensity workout.
Muscle toning helps to rebalance your figure and firm up all parts of your body (stomach, buttocks, arms, chest). Targeted toning exercises will encourage your body to get back into shape while getting in the habit of moving around.
Wrap the bands around your ankles or wrists to intensify your physical exertion. Adjust the bands to your liking using the velcro to ensure your freedom of movement.
Weighted bands are sold in pairs to balance your muscle strengthening work.
