The kids are back to school, Labor Day has passed and pumpkin lattes are already making their seasonal appearance. But, according to your local weather forecast, it’s still very much so summer outside. This never-ending heat can take a toll on your workout mojo and make it hard to find your stride.

So what’s a girl to do? Don’t sweat it. A pool-based exercise program is the perfect workout solution for these dog days of summer. And after you’re done, you’ll have no guilt about lounging on a raft and soaking up some rays.

Not only are water workouts a refreshing option, but they also offer plenty of other benefits.
