I've done this, it felt good to move my joints again in WARM water without the weight bearing part of it. I would recommend giving it a try; it felt good to me while I was doing it, but I'm not sure that it had a positive long term effect. I ended up stopping when it got to be winter/cold because the effort it took to bundle up, drive there, change to swimsuit, do the exercises, get dressed again, dry hair that got wet, drive home... well, it was way more effort than it was worth and just plain wore me out. :( In winter it easily became a 2+ hour event, which was/is like a marathon to me.

I'm thinking I need to retire in, if not move before hand, to a warmer climate...

I have done it a couple of different times. I would still be doing it except I became extremely sensitive to chlorine. Back in the early 1990's I did it for 2-3 years and it helped keep me nimble. Besides feeling really good it kept all my joints moving and at the time I was working 60 hour weeks. I do remember that you start slow and gradually increase your speed of the exercise routines.

Take care,
Karen
