Anybody with experience in underwater exercises? I am kind of skeptical since whales are fat but it would be nice to try something new. Please don´t suggest drowning, boiling water or a gym in a submarine. Thanks

Maybe not underwater gym but liquid gym. As you get strong you move through liquids of different densities. Newbies start in water, then something in a consistency of a pap, finally melted metal or lava.

Well, the problem with mercury is that you can't really touch it.... bad things happen... For the underwater gym, you could have air filled toys to train the negative portion and weights to train the positive portion!
Honestly though, training IN the water is great for you. However, you don't need weights. If you swim enough, you will gain strength. I have a cousin who is an extremely good swimmer. When he trains, he sometimes does 5,000 laps a day. Yes, five thousand. He does 1,000 laps, then trains with weights (in a gym); another thousand, trains with weights; etc., until he reaches 5,000 laps. After that, I'm sure you'd get a good enough workout, even without the gym training. However, that is basically for endurance; I'm not sure how much actual strength you'd gain once you're used to the movements. I'm sure you could find a way to strength train in the water though. Maybe find some sort of waterproof weight vest to wear while swimming (?), even though that might be dangerous.
