A.E.C. announces the availability of Aquaflex Fitness Paddles, a hand held aquatic device. The Aquaflex offers variable resistance which is not available in any other aquatic exercise device. This feature makes the Aquaflex an ideal way to exercise for pregnant women. This variable resistance is created by a patented vent system that enables you to change the surface area.

The Aquaflex also functions differently from other aquatic exercise devices in that it is not buoyant at all. The resistance is created by the speed it is moved through the water. This is called hydrodynamic drag. Unlike gravity or buoyancy, the user, not outside forces creates the degree of resistance. This unique aspect of the Aquaflex is called accommodating resistance and is yet another reason why the Aquaflex is great for pregnant women. It accommodates the different strength capabilities of different women.

With the Aquaflex a pregnant woman can get a very thorough, effective, workout through-out her pregnancy unless otherwise indicated by her caregiver. Also the water offers a pregnant woman a buoyant, non-impact, cool environment for a fun and safe exercise regiment all for $34.99.
