WOMEN'S

















The AQx Sports Aquatic Training Shoe "ATS" is great for fitness, cross-training, rehab and recovery. It was designed to make deep-water running feel more like land-based running and also works extremely well for shallow water activities. Resistance is 2-3 times depending on your velocity. Designed based on the principle of "specificity of training"...that the deep water running movement pattern needs to be closely aligned with a land-based running style to maximize the benefit to the runner.

AQx Features: Decreases the amount of pounding generally needed to enhance a runner's performance(s), is an aid to recovery or an adjunct to normal training regimen, used as a method of rehabilitation from a running-related or musculoskeletal injury, enhances range of motion and proper mechanics of land-based running.

AQx Specifications: Constructed of a neoprene upper to provide comfort and be form fitting; big mesh overlays to provide ventilation and aid in the drying process; hydro-dynamic polyurethane fins for correct, subtle plane of motion resistance; super-gripping rubber outsole for awesome traction in and out of the pool; strategically placed drain port on bottom of shoe for added drainage; bungee lace up sytem with locking slider for quick installation and super secure fit; reinforced finger pull loop to slip on shoes easily.

Women's Color: Navy Blue/White/Gray

AQx Aquatic Training Shoes work well with The Unknown Swimmer's Water Aerobics Regimen.
Who is the Unknown Swimmer? That’s unknown. But who the heck cares? He has developed a free 20-minute aquatic exercise regimen that he finds so helpful that he does it daily. It helps pain levels, fibromyalgia, hyperaesthesia, PTSD, whiplash, collapsed and/or herniated spinal disc symptoms, TMJ, myofascial pain, and even allergies, in his experience, and works better than medicine, exercise equipment, or anything else, especially if combined with massages and special back stretching exercises.

The big reason this regimen works is that it uses a lot of muscles (gently), gives a reasonable amount of exercise without causing pain, and uses the very therapeutic value of zero gravity, which can be had with the use of a pool, flotation devices like our wave belts or bouyancy suits, and the help of AQx Aquatic Training Shoes to create more water resistance and increase leg exercise. He often repeats a few moves and varies arm motions until he gets in 30 minutes a day, but you may not have the time. If you do, take it!

Any flotation device (plus the AQx Aquatic Training Shoes for leg resistance) that keeps you floating with your head above water when you're still and not treading water will give you the zero gravity effect; which works best enhanced by AQx Aquatic Training Shoes. If you want or need to give leg muscles an extra workout, use AQx Aquatic Training Shoes. They will increase water resistance 2 or 3 times.


The Unknown Swimmer never goes in the water without a wave belt or buoyancy suit flotation device (often enhanced by AQx Aquatic Training Shoes) that allows him to float, and this relaxes pressure on the collapsed and herniated spinal discs.

It is good to ask a back doctor for back stretching exercises tailored for each individual patient according to his needs, so that the muscles around injured areas can strengthen and thereby act as a better back support system. If you have no injuries but merely find that the zero gravity warm water environment relaxes sore back muscles, that’s okay too.

Another reason the Unknown Swimmer uses zero gravity gotten from   a wave belt or buoyancy suit flotation device (often enhanced by AQx Aquatic Training Shoes) is because, unlike with swimming, his body can remain relatively vertical in the water, thereby avoiding strain to injured neck areas. Swimming and dog-paddling makes one constantly hold up one’s head and neck, which can actually be counterproductive to neck health, depending on the type of injuries and their permanence status.

On Sept. 17, 2006, in the Netherlands, Lornah Kiplagat of Kenya set a world record in the 10-mile run after some unnconventional training. For the two weeks before the event, while trying to rehab an injury, she ran almost entirely in a swimming pool. Easy on the joints, water running and water aerobics offer muscular and cardio benefits similar to their land-based counterparts—but without the impact. As aqua exercise grows among pro athletes and the general public alike, a wave of water-specific shoes has has arisen to meet the need. They protect the feet from abrasive pool floors, dry quickly and in some cases add resistance that pushes the workout to a new level.                               — Roy M. Wallace
