Water exercise has changed dramatically over the years, thanks in part to active Baby Boomers searching out lower-impact exercise options.

PoolFit founder, Mark Grevelding, has trained water exercise instructors for the past 18 years and has compiled a team of aquatic fitness experts to lead the PoolFit workouts. The PoolFit App features a wide variety of water workouts, including high intensity interval training (HIIT), Tabata, aerobics, deep water, muscle conditioning, yoga, arthritis, water walking and more. Two new workouts are uploaded to the app each month.
Recently launched in the App Store, PoolFit is the only app dedicated to full-length water exercise workouts. PoolFit offers a trial month and then a monthly subscription fee ($15.99) that allows users to download workouts and take their device poolside and follow along. The app also offers Airplay for those lucky enough to have a patio or lanai that allows for an Apple TV.
“Water exercise has changed dramatically over the years, thanks in part to active Baby Boomers searching out lower-impact exercise options. This created a demand for more challenging and athletic water fitness classes. The upward forces of buoyancy allow people to exercise more vigorously in water without pain and discomfort, and the viscosity or thickness of water means that every movement is resisted, improving muscular endurance and joint integrity,” said Grevelding.

The PoolFit App is currently available for download on the Apple App Store.
The PoolFit website was launched in January 2019 after the success of Fitmotivation.com, a video streaming website intended for water exercise instructors. Fitness consumers began discovering these instructor videos, creating a need for a separate site. It became quickly apparent that an app was needed so that PoolFit users could exercise at the pool without Wi-Fi. The PoolFit app is a “game-changer” as it provides more options for people to exercise in the water.
