Shaping, cladding, firming, strengthening and toning are the keywords for a dream silhouette, rock-hard abs, round buttocks and tapered thighs. But at what cost?
Yes, gymnastics without (too much) e ort and without aches afterwards is possible, provided it is done in an aquatic environment. Nothing is more normal in Thailand than wanting to do outdoor sports, rather than shutting yourself up in a room.
Whether you know how to swim or not, for lazy people like we are, as well as for the elderly or convalescent people, or people with respiratory issues or emphysema, aquagym courses with equipment are perfect, and the discipline is one of the few sports in which everybody in the world can participate.
An aquatic exercise is 3 times its dry equivalent. All of the muscles are gently required and blood circulation is accelerated, allowing for a better removal of fats and toxins. You will atten your stomach and re ne your sil- houette, all while shaping your body, because the action of water has a “palpating and rolling” massage e ect on the skin that melts cellulite. Your skin will be rm and smooth after just a few sessions!
We have tested for you the courses given at Rawai’s Ton Mai Spa. Immersed in the water, the aquabike, the ellip- tical stepper and the treadmill all allow you to alternate between exercises in the water, accompanied by music. Throughout the sessions Hervé adds small variations and additional exercises to bene t the participants even more. He works to motivate the participants to surpass themselves, all in good humor. He is a real coach. You go back, you like the sessions, and you ask for more. The ideal frequency to obtain real results is 3 times one hour per week. It’s fun and it really works. What are you waiting for?
