"Bathers"...cute, I like that term. Swimsuit in these parts.

I love the water. I currently have access to a pool on-premises and have not been making good use of it. Have vowed to change that...and am now sore as a result, which is a good thing, as I'm hardly ever sore from the gym or dance practice, and I'm in "train thru limitations" mode right now, which does generally result in soreness. Was using the water resistance to enhance speed in knee lifts in jive and now I'm...ooof. Cheesy

I love swimming in cold-ish water. Last summer I swam in an unheated pool in in Jersey and it was perfect, but now I'm in Florida living with fam who enjoy heating their hot-weather pool in the summer... oof. Not my thing, as I run "hot" metabolically to begin with.

Swimming in the icy Aegean under an uber-hot sun... now that's my cuppa. Cheesy

I like water that has had the edge taken off it, too warm is not refreshing.

I've always liked doing ballet barre in the pool. The resistance of the water is great training.

I was actually being ironic: you instantly feel lighter in water (hence the loosing weight) but actuallly swimming is not a great way to actually loose weight, even though it is great exercise.  Most swimmers look well conditioned by have a healthy sub-cutaneous fat layer... there's a good reason for that!

It was suggested that I could do some water training to help the knee but it is too cold. I find that going to a swimming centre is a drafty affair and I tend to et sick then with a cold.....I wonder if I can do water therapy in the bath!

is there a hot tub somewhere you can use, one that isn't too heavily chlorinated? they can be *wonderful* for doing therapy & dance-related fitness training and well as stretching...

I have wanted a goods hydrotherapy tub for a long time...oh, the heaven of those things! I had a friend who bought a very high-end one, with gazillions of jets that hit everywhere from your neck, down your arms, back, legs, hips, calves, and feet while you lay in a lounge. It had two of these sort of facing each other so you could chat with your friend in this giant tub while getting blissed out.

Omg, doesn't that just sound like heaven for dancers? Smiley
