You might say they were "hopping" right into their Pre-Easter "eggs-cerise"  routine at Gold's Gym on Friday.

Susan Browning is the instructor. She is a water fitness professional with nearly 25 years teaching experience.

I’ve seen her classes - they are packed! When it’s water workout time, you have two choices: you either better get out of the pool or join in!

So, that begs the question, how much exercise do you get during a water workout? Here is Susan’s answer:

“The water workout is vigorous and challenges the balance, coordination, strength, and endurance of the individual.  We use the water for resistance (building core strength) and at the same time, the water is easy on the joints, massages the muscles and feels great!  We run, jump and use a variety of buoyant equipment.  There is no fear of falling, and because the body is submerged, participants quickly lose any feelings of self-consciousness.

“Their success stories are truly inspiring.  Whether it is losing weight, avoiding diabetes, prenatal workouts, rehabbing joint replacement, battling depression, reducing medications, living independently, etc. (everyone in the pool has a story), the workout offers something to everyone.”

On the day before Easter weekend, you can see her class offered an "egg-cellent" opportunity for "egg-cerise."
