Get into Aquafit

Aquafit is a high energy and fun class in which you perform a range of aerobic moves in the pool shown to you by our motivational instructors! No matter what your age, ability or experience aqua fit is an inclusive activity suitable for everyone.

Not only is exercising in water good fun, it’s also amazingly good for you and comes with benefits its land-based equivalents can't offer. Water is 800 times denser than air so you will get a better work out with a smaller risk of injury than if you were exercising on land.

Aquafit classes offer you something different to a traditional gym workout and you’ll really see a difference in your overall health and fitness. Typical classes will involve all the exercises you would expect in a ‘dry’ class but with added bonuses you can only get from exercising in water.

So what are the benefits of exercising in water?

• Water supports the body, putting less stress on your joints and muscles
• This support is great if you’re older, have suffered an injury or are recovering from illness
• Water pressure helps the heart move blood around the body, putting less strain on it
• The impact of gravity is less in the water allowing a greater range of motion
• Working out in water can also prevent overheating, helping you exercise for longer.
• And... It’s fun! It is not often you can say that about a workout.
