Pool Exercises



Hip Abduction

Standing while holding on to the side of the pool, with leg slightly behind other leg, lift leg straight out to the side.


Mini Squats

Holding on to the side of the pool while standing with your feet directly under your hips, squeeze your butt and slowly drop your hips back while slowly bending your knees to lower your body.


Leg Curls

While keeping your hips and shoulders in line, bring your heel to your backside. Make this exercise more challenging with a pool noodle.



With your feet directly under your hips and back straight, alternate driving your knee up in front of you.


Hip Extension

Standing while holding on to the side of the pool, with the leg completely straight, bring it back behind you and squeeze your butt


Step Ups

Use the pool steps for the exercise and practice keeping your leg straight while stepping up with the opposite leg. Keep your core engaged throughout.



Step forward with one leg, lowering your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90 degree angle. Gently scull the water for balance and keep the core engaged.


Jumping Jacks

Move your arms and legs together all the way out and all the way in while keeping your back straight.


Squat Jumps

Sit back into a squat and then explosively leap into the air while extending your arms overhead.



Aquatic jogging is a lot easier on the joints and gentle sculling can aid in balance. Make sure you squeeze your stomach and butt tight while engaging in this exercise.

Dr. Jake Berman

After graduating from the University of Florida, Dr. Jake Berman, PT, DPT sought out mentorship first from Bob Seton in Destin, FL and then from Aaron Robles in Jacksonville, FL. Both of these mentors have 20+ years of experience helping people keep active and mobile so they can enjoy high quality active lifestyles. What Jake found was that back pain was by far the most debilitating pain and the highest factor leading to decreased physical activity later in life. These experiences are what inspired Jake to specialize in helping people aged 50+ keep active, mobile and pain free despite the aging process. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to alleviate somebody’s back pain so that they can get back to living their best life- especially in Naples! Over the years of helping 100’s of people aged 65-75 become stronger and pain free, one thing for sure has become apparent: “he who rests rots”. Jake is a firm believer that we become stiff then old, not old then stiff. Seriously, think about it...
