There’s a new way of building strength, endurance and balance and it involves walking on water! Of course, nobody we know of can actually walk on water without the use of any tool or equipment. In water ball walking, all you need is a giant bubble ball of air and you’re all set. This is a form of exercise that lets you work out and have fun at the same time.
How Does Water Ball Walking Work?
A water ball is a transparent plastic ball that allows you to float or walk on water. It’s basically a flotation device. There’s a zipped opening where you get in, then somebody blows up the bubble with air and zips it close. And you’re all set. You can run, roll, walk and jump while floating on the water.
Water ball walking can be a great workout because balancing and controlling the water ball is not as easy as it looks. You need tremendous focus and balance to control your position inside the water walking ball and to keep from falling.
Is Water Ball Walking Safe?
Water ball walking is safe when used the right way. The key is to regularly change the air inside the ball every few minutes. It is also always better to have someone looking out for you while you’re inside the water ball. Well, you can’t inflate and zip up a water ball by yourself so you practically have no choice in the matter. You will always need someone to help you with the water ball. You also need that someone to make sure that the air inside your water ball is changed every few minutes.
Water ball walking is fun and exciting and it is already popular in amusement parks and even in backyard pools, but there is also some concern surrounding its safety. There is the worry that someone can suffocate, drown or injure himself while inside the water ball. Manufacturers of the water ball say that the water balls are safe when used properly.
Water ball walking should be treated like any other type of exercise or physical activity wherein safety is a primary concern and people should always use the right equipment in the right way.
