Looking for a new, creative way to get into shape for bathing suit season? How about aquacising?  Water fitness classes are available to all UNH students. These classes provide basic aerobic exercise in shallow or deep water, and are low impact but with the same intensity as a land-based aerobic class. This is great for people with knee or ankle problems and is a sure bet way to get you ready for bathing suit season. Each class is set to music and starts with a warm-up, proceeds into an aerobic segment, and ends with a cool-down accompanied with stretching exercises.

I’ve recently reached a plateau in my workouts where I work out just as hard as I used to, but am no longer seeing the results. After getting quite discouraged and searching online for what to do, I discovered the best thing to do is to switch up my routine.
