Far too often, aquatic fitness and therapy programs do not take full advantage of the benefits provided by this medium that can have a positive impact on the lives of older adults. In reality, learning how the unique properties of water affect physiology and anatomy can enhance the ability of both fitness programming and physical therapy to be more effective. Pools: A Gift for the Ages explores research and case studies that demonstrate quicker and more complete rehabilitation and success of preparing people in advance for joint-replacement surgery. The DVD also provides ideas and insights for using a pool to generate income and help offset a facility's operating costs.

 Among topics covered:

• The benefits of aquatic exercise
• Maximize the benefits
• Training implications
• Considerations for the inexperienced or frail
• Rehabilitation
• Income-generating ideas
