Mermaid Fitness is making waves in water aerobics

By  | 

In trending news this morning, the latest trend in water aerobics works your core and gives you dose of fantasy at the same time. Plus, details on the Toy Hall of Fame inductees.

First up, at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, a mythical creature is coming to life in an under the sea workout called "Mermaid Fitness."

Splashing around in fish tails may be fun, but isolating your legs in fins for 45 minutes is also intense cardio and strength training. The workouts aren't just for girls, either "mermen" are encouraged to try it out too!

Also trending, The National Toy Hall of Fame inducted three old favorites this year. There were 12 finalists including the Magic 8 Ball, My Little Pony and a Pez candy dispenser.

The winners are a few time-honored favorites -- the paper airplane, the Wiffle ball, and the board game "Clue."
