What most people don't realize is that you can get a good workout with having some fun in the water. You can burn a lot of calories. Working out in the water will help you in many ways.

Canoeing - this is a group activity just like kayaking, but it is requiring a group effort and helps with synchronizing a workout with a partner.

Water Aerobics - this exercise will help you with being able to get your cardio up, without you sacrificing being overheated in the middle of a workout
