This is a training manual for aquarobics exercise in the water. The aquarobic system encompasses a wide range of activity so that it can be used by professional physiotherapists and hydrotherapists as a technique for the rehabilitation of injured or disabled patients. Because of the simple nature of the movements, it can also be used by fitness coaches in a swimming pool to get their clients fit and keep them so, whatever their age or physical endowments.
