MMI Launches Aquatic Exercise Classes at Frederick Kids First Swim School

Frederick, Maryland (PRWEB) January 24, 2015

The Mid-Maryland Musculoskeletal Institute (MMI), local experts for things related to muscle, bone and joint care, has a unique way to help succeed with New Year’s resolution to get into shape in 2015.

In conjunction with the Kids First Swim School located in the FSK Mall, MMI now offers Aquatic Exercise Classes. This marks the first endeavor of its kind for the orthopaedic practice as it joins forces with a local sport facility to offer a fast growing and popular exercise option to residents of the Frederick area.

All exercise has a range of health benefits, but water-based work-outs can be a fun way to bring variety into exercise routine while taking full advantage of the benefits that the buoyancy of exercising in water provides. MMI’s Aquatic Exercise Classes build cardiovascular fitness and strength. Just like swimming, water exercise classes are easy on joints, yet challenging enough to help reach new levels of fitness.

Instructor, Jennilee Ambush, Occupational Therapist with MMI, teaches the classes Monday and Wednesday mornings. The 10:00 AM class Low-Impact Water Exercise is designed for those with limited mobility or injuries, while the 11:00 AM Cardio Fitness class is designed for those looking for a low impact, high cardio exercise option. When asked, Ambush said “Because of their low-impact format, our Aquatic Exercise Classes are ideal for those who have pain when doing most land based exercise such as people suffering from low back pain, arthritis, or injuries to the lower extremities. It’s also beneficial for those preparing for, or recovering from hip, knee, or back surgery. Without the limitations of gravity, the water helps you to become stronger, reduce pain, and provides the ability to do more in the pool than on land, resulting in a faster recovery.”

The association for the two organizations began in 2014 with the launch of an Aquatic Therapy Program for patients at MMI. Ambush works with many developmentally delayed children and found that the benefits of therapy in a warm water pool allowed for increased participation, range of motion, strength, endurance, and balance. The idea to expand to exercise classes for the general public seemed to be the next logical step for the energetic Ambush who is a former swimmer and lifeguard. Ali Fox, manager of the Frederick location noted that “Kids First Swim Schools offer these classes at most of their locations but they are operated by staff of the swim school. The opportunity to have an occupational therapist like Jennilee managing and teaching the classes is a real bonus for our Frederick patrons.”

The Aquatic Exercise Association reports that one can expect to burn 400 to 500 calories per hour when exercising in the water. Additionally, water offers 12 times the resistance of air, which helps to improve muscle strength. Ambush utilizes simple devices such as hand-held paddles, foam noodles and kickboards in the classes to add further resistance increasing the intensity of the aquatic workout.

The Mid-Maryland Musculoskeletal Institute offers a full range of services for muscle, bone and joint problems and is ocated at 86 Thomas Johnson Court in Frederick, Maryland as well as 1829 Howell Road in Hagerstown, MD and 3280 Urbana Pike in Ijamsville, MD.

Protecting Your Children

If you are a parent then you will be aware that there are different regulations in the car for that of adults, but how do you make sure that your kids are safe at all times when they are strapped into your vehicle? With eight thousand children dying in car accidents in America every year, it’s important to be sure how to keep your children safe. The roads in the UK are no safer, and we need to implement a few rules to make sure that we keep our children safe and sound.

Firstly, don’t even consider drinking and driving. Not only does it put your life in danger, but it endangers the life of your children, who don’t have the choice.

Make sure that your kids have their seatbelts on. instil in them the need to keep the belt on, and if necessary move the buckle so they cannot reach it from their car seat as little fingers get into everything while you are concentrating on the road.

Don’t answer the phone when you are driving, as it leads to distracted behaviours that could put your children’s lives in danger. Wait till you are stopped to make that call. It’s actually illegal to use a mobile phone behind the wheel in the UK, so you will be teaching them valuable lessons too.

If your children are fighting in the back of the car then make sure that you pull over to tell them off. There is no point trying to act as a mediator and a chauffeur at the same time, it will just result in you being distracted and having a car accident.

There is no illusion that you might be tired if you have children sapping your energy levels on a daily basis, and this is all the more reason to not drive when you are suffering from tiredness. It will make you distracted, and therefore mean that you may have an accident when you normally would be safe. Pull over, have a nap and then carry on.

If you are looking for Car Insurance Online then you will find a far cheaper deal.
