Health Tip: Take a Water Exercise Class
(HealthDay News) -- A water exercise (aquatics) class offers a great cardiovascular workout that's not too tough on the joints.
The American Council on Exercise says you should follow these guidelines before you sign up for an aquatics course:
Observe an aquatics class at your local YMCA or fitness center to see if it's a good fit.

Make sure the class includes music that you enjoy.
Ensure that instructors are certified, with special training in aquatics.
