Get fit in the pool with an aquatic class
See below details of the Aquatic fitness classes we do at Xcel. Click here for timetable.
An aerobics session in the pool that can maintain and improve stamina, strength and suppleness as well as increase cardiovascular fitness. Unlike aerobics on land Aqua Fit is low-impact and the cushioning effect of the water protects joints in the spine, ankle, hip and knees. It is suitable for people of all ages and abilities as participants can work at a variety of levels by increasing effort and using resistive equipment.
An instructor led dance class taken in the water. You will learn routines from around the world whilst using the resistance of the water to help tone all your body muscles.
For those who prefer a more targeted workout, Aqua Circuits is the aquatic equivalent to circuits in the gym. Based on a range of activities and movements, participants use equipment such as weights and specialised floats and move between stations to tone specific muscle groups. Workouts often include an element aimed at improving aerobic fitness.
