Melissa Layne, assistant professor in the Department for Health, Physical Education and Recreation in the University of North Georgia's (UNG) College of Education, has published a book about water exercise to offer a low-impact means of exercise for people who struggle with more rigorous forms of activity.
Layne, who has a Master of Education in exercise science from Auburn University, conducts frequent research in the subjects of aquatic fitness and personal training.
She said the book is appropriate for all who are interested in starting water exercise, including those seeking rehabilitation from surgery or injury.
"From the sedentary to the fit, aquatic exercise is adaptable to all. It is especially helpful for those with limitations in moving on land," she said.
The book includes graphics, descriptions and clear explanations, and can be used for purposes ranging from rehabilitation programs to complete fitness workouts.
