The socially enjoyable aqua fitness classes are suitable for all ages and abilities. Classes are held at regular times throughout the week. Bookings are essential, please contact the Centre for bookings and times.
Aqua Aerobics is a fantastic way to get fit and have fun. While enjoying the water you can improve stability, mobility, posture, muscle strength and tone. Individuals can work at an intensity that they desire. A combination of water-based strength and cardio exercises are used during the class applying the natural resistance of the water which is gentle on the joints, giving you a great workout.
Classes are run year-round in the indoor 25 metre pool, which is heated to 29oC. There is no limit to age or fitness ability. Aqua Aerobics is designed to work at your own pace while using variations of foam equipment, allowing you to increase resistance and adversity.
What to Expect
Classes are made up of choreographed routines and circuits of exercises to do in the water. Choreographed routines are best achieved at chest depth water but can be done at any depth you feel comfortable at. You do not have to be able to swim to participate in classes either. We do advise participants to bring a water bottle to classes, to have on the side of the pool to stay hydrated throughout the session.
