1. How do I use this kit while at the pool?
Watch the short video above to see how easy it is to use our DVD kit to learn your new exercises! If you don't have a music player, the music CD can be downloaded to your computer, then uploaded to your ipad, or iphone to be played by the pool instead. Just put them somewhere dry and shaded, like under a chair, if your devices are not waterproofed.
2. Is WaterGym effective for weight loss?
Yes. It's common knowledge that to lose weight you need to burn more calories per day than you consume. WaterGym focuses on the calorie burning aspect of weight loss by increasing your activity level through aerobic exercise, and increasing your lean muscle through strength training. WaterGym workouts are designed to work multiple muscle groups of the upper and lower half body at the same time, which results in greater cardiovascular output, oxygen consumption and calories burned.
3. How deep does my pool have to be to do WaterGym?
Your pool only needs to be deep enough to where your feet don't touch the bottom while wearing the belt. If your pool is more shallow, you can still perform many exercises by altering them slightly. For instance, if we ask you straighten your legs and point your toes, you can bend your knees slightly and flex your feet instead. This will prevent your toes from hitting bottom. However, if your pool depth is waist high, it is too shallow for this deep water program. We'll be making shallow-water workouts soon.
4. Do I get my hair wet?
No! Your head is kept dry and out of the water, so you don't have to wash or re-style your hair or redo your make-up. Many of our customers do WaterGym first thing in the morning and go straight to work afterwards.
5. Help! I don't have time to shop for a bathing suit! Can I wear something else?
Yes! You can simply wear a lightweight pair of shorts or leggings with a t-shirt or tank top, or whatever you are most comfortable in! GREAT BONUS! If you dread wearing bathing suit, please know that working out in deep water is one of the most private workout environments around! Did you realize that your body is hidden underwater so almost no one can see you? So don't wait to get a bathing suit - get started now! After only one workout, you'll feel great and be on your way to a stronger, more fit and healthier you.
6. I am a non-swimmer. Can I still do WaterGym?
Most of the exercises on this DVD are performed in water deep enough so that your feet don't touch the bottom. Therefore, we don’t recommend non-swimmers to participate in WaterGym because OUR WATERGYM BELT IS NOT A LIFESAVING DEVICE (see button below), nor is it approved by the United States Coast Guard as a life saving device. The WaterGym Belt is intended to be used by qualified swimmers for exercise purposes only, and should not be used by children or anyone who cannot swim unless properly supervised at all times. This is because the design of the WaterGym Belt will not prevent drowning because the buoyancy factor and its distribution in the belt is not sufficient to float a conscious or unconscious person in a "face out of the water" position.
That said, many of our customers and clients have enlisted proper supervision (ex: trained lifeguard or personal aquatic trainer) in order to learn our program so that they can reap the benefits of WaterGym. In fact, many have fallen in love with the water so much that they learned to swim. We are very proud of them!.

Low profile and excellent belting
Posted by Carol on 4th Oct 2020
This water belt is low profile therefore not getting in the way of your arms. It can be made very snug so that it can’t ride up your torso. The belt has a little elastic in it which helps when you have it very snug you can still breath. And the colors are bright making it easy to spot your belt. Great product!!

I have been doing the program for several years. My husband recently was very ill, lost a lot of weight and muscle mass and I got him involved. He is doing great with the new belt and program.

I'm new to Watergym but not to the pool. I've been swiming laps for years. I'm still doing laps but added Watergym to the workout. I tried to order a large belt for my husband but none available. I've only had the belt for about a week but enjoying the exercise.

My daily Deep Water Aerobics class has been cancelled since March. I was trying to re-create it in my own pool, since May when my pool warmed up. When I found the WaterGym workout, I ordered it and have found it to be awesome. It's a great 45 minute workout. I use it almost daily and totally enjoy it. I also ordered the WaterGym Belt. It is so comfortable. I highly recommend both!

As expected, it works well and is a perfect size for me. Love the pink color, too.
On the fence

Note from WG Staff... Hi JMP: Please call us as your belt should not ride up if strap is adjusted correctly... and you do need the ML if riding too low in the water....Let's get you happy so you can focus on your water workouts! ~ WG Staff
Since purchasing this belt, I have used it twice while taking a deep water aerobics class. I love the idea of less foam and after reading about belt sizing, I chose to order size small. Had I not read about sizing, I would have purchased this belt in size M. Having said that, it rides up a little and I am constantly adjusting this belt as it rides up. The water is up to my neck. I would prefer to be higher up in the water during my workout. I am on the fence about exchanging it for a bigger size. I have 30days to return it, so I plan to use it for another week. Otherwise, I like the belt. The colors are fun and it’s well made.

My husband and I have been increasingly depending on our pool for a workout as we get older. The belt allows us to get full range of motion very comfortably in the water.
Never too old to use a great product.

My 87 year old husband wore the belt when he went into the water for the first time in the 35 years I've known him. He says he's got to get used to it holding him up but he likes the security it gives him. We ordered the medium/large thinking it would fit both of us. However, we have it as small as it will go and it still rides up in the back a little bit on him but he said he would continue to use it. The sizing was probably our fault, but that's why I gave it a 4 star rating.

I have been using Water Gym products for many years, I love the new colors. I order belts in bulk for the deep water classes that I teach and send belt/dvd packs to friends and newbies to water exercise. Great product.
