Classes

Get fit in the pool with our new classes

We now offer a range of water based fitness orientated classes including Aqua Jog, Aqua Fitness, Aqua Circuits and Swimfit.

Here are some of our current sessions, but do check out our timetable for the full list of workout classes and prices.

Aqua Fit

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.

Aqua Jogging

An instructor led activity, for those who wish to use the positive benefits of water, such as resistance and buoyancy to gain a highly effective workout that has low or no impact on joints.

Aqua Circuits

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.

Swimfit

Swimfit is a swimming based workout. Either pick up a card to follow in your own time, or join in with a Swimfit class for that added encouragement from a workout instructor.
