According to Fitness Consultant Elizabeth Quinn, athletes of all sorts can attain the benefits of deep water running. Being submerged in Hawaii’s spectacular blue ocean water places resistance on all sides of the body forcing opposing muscles to work equally. It is an invigorating form of cross training, and an excellent way to deal with and prevent injuries. Water running can allow an injured athlete to recover without losing fitness.
