(KCEN) -- The new year is upon us and for many people that means getting in shape.
And more than ever, people are diving into water aerobics.
The new wave in that type of fitness challenges people to do land exercises in the water.
You can decide how tough your work out is by using noodles and buoyancy weights.
You can easily burn 300 calories while also reducing your injury risk, compared to other forms of exercise.
Toni Kennedy, a group fitness instructor, said, "Something that people don't realize is it's 12 times harder to move through water than it is on land."
The CDC recommends that adults get at least two hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week.
