Aqua Aerobics Fins: aqua fitness, water exercises, pool workouts

What are your ideal aqua aerobics fins?

Are you interested in aqua aerobics fins for better water exercises? shinfin™ leg fins are best for many water exercises because they fit on your legs, at different heights and angles. They are new equipment for aqua aerobics, deep water running (aqua jogging), aqua fitness etc.

Good water exercise equipment should exercise the big muscles in your thighs, buttocks, stomach and torso without straining your feet, ankles, Achilles tendons and calf muscles. Your water aerobics equipment should benefit upright posture aqua aerobics exercises like deep water running, aqua jogging, water walking and other aqua fitness exercises and aqua stretching programs. Good water aerobics gear should also work for water exercises lying on your front or back, with or without flotation belts, noodles and kickboards. It should help you with slower resistance exercises through to faster exercise movements. Good water aerobics equipment should also benefit your cardiovascular fitness and help reduce unwanted fat. The better your water exercise equipment works for you, the more you will enjoy your aqua aerobics and aqua fitness programs.

I have designed shinfin™ leg fins to offer all these water exercise benefits and more. They achieve this by connecting power directly to your legs, above your ankle joints. This transfers your water aerobics workout to the big muscles in your thighs, buttocks, stomach and torso – the muscles you most want to exercise. Your feet, ankles, Achilles tendons and calf muscles are comfortable and not strained like they are with foot flippers. So they help you exercise the right muscles without damaging other parts of your body. This is why these aqua aerobics fins are a true evolution for water aerobics and water fitness programs.

When used for swimming exercises on your front or back, they can also help you to swim with a smooth, efficient and streamlined stroke like good swimmers use. This is because they guide you to exercise the same muscle sequence that good swimmers use for freestyle, backstroke and butterfly. So, as well as their many advantages for water aerobics, they improve your natural swimming too.

Aqua aerobics fins – more from the inventor/designer

The advantages of shinfin™ leg fins apply to water exercises and aqua aerobics for all levels of fitness. These benefits arise because I designed them to match natural streamlined kicking for freestyle, backstroke and fly. Since about 1990, I have developed over 50 prototypes. I have studied swimmers with shinfin™ swim fins, with foot flippers and without any fins, using underwater video equipment and biomechanical analysis. Testing has included beginner and intermediate swimmers through to elite swimmers at the Australian Institute of Sport and in the Australian Olympic Team. Testing has also included physically and intellectually disabled swimmers. I found that the same design biomechanics apply to all swimmers who wish to do a natural streamlined kick, and that these same design biomechanics are also suited to many water aerobics exercises.

For water aerobics exercises, you feel the power of shinfin™ leg fins coming from the big muscles in your upper legs, buttocks, stomach and torso (without straining your feet, ankles and calf muscles like foot flippers). I designed them to work like this because these are the muscles you use for good “no-fins” swimming. I then found that this design also benefits water aerobics exercises done in an upright posture such as deep water running, aqua jogging, water walking, rehabilitation and many other aqua exercises that benefit from extra water resistance on the front of the leg. They can of course also be used for water exercises lying on your front or back. If you swim with them, you feel how they help to keep your body horizontal for less drag. You feel how they guide you to kick from your hips, with only a little knee-bend, and give the correct body balance to support your arm stroke. That is why they improve your “no-fins” swimming fitness, technique (arms too) and speed. Whether using them for swimming or other water exercises, you can feel that you are exercising the right muscles and strengthening a good natural movement. They are biomechanically advanced aqua aerobics fins, an evolution for your water exercise programs.

Foot flippers cannot give the same water exercise benefits basically because they attach to your feet. They stiffen and cramp your feet and ankles, and disrupt water flow. Foot flippers change your body position and stress your ankle, knee and hip joints. You can feel how foot flippers work more from your calf muscles and ankles. They don’t exercise your your upper legs, buttocks, stomach and torso like shinfin™ swim fins do. This is why foot flippers cannot give you the same water aerobics benefits.
