There’s a new form of fitness that’s gaining popularity with mermaid lovers of all ages. “The 8-Week Mermaid Transformation Series” is a new workout series on YouTube that was created by Fin Fun Mermaid, a company that sells mermaid tails you can swim in, and USA Swimming-certified coach Christine Dustin, so you can channel your inner Ariel.
They’re calling the sport mermaiding and like regular swimming, it gives you a full-body workout, but it focuses on your core to get those rolling motions that make you swim like a mermaid. It’s also gentle on the joints, the water gives resistance you don’t get on land, plus, it’s low-impact and leads to few injuries. And if you’re into the whole mermaid thing, you get to wear the tail, what other workout lets you do that?
Dustin points out that mermaiding is also a killer cardio workout. She says it “strengthens your heart, increases your lung capacity, and improves your flexibility, in addition to working muscles throughout your entire body.”
Every week, Fin Fun will release three days of workouts that are about 20 minutes each. Then you’re ready to hit the pool with your tail and any little mermaids that want to join in, because as Dustin says, “Mermaiding is a lifetime sport.”
