Aqua Fit is 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 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. This class is primarily based in the deep end of the pool.
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.
Aimed specifically at people aged 50+, these sessions involve gentle aerobic activity aimed at improving general health and wellbeing. There are two parts to Forever Active, the Dryside session and the Pool session, which follow on from each other. There is a tea and coffee session at the end of the dryside activity, if you wanted to chill out for short while afterwards. Non-members can book both of the Friday morning sessions for the special price of £5.30, or you can pay for the individual session (wet or dry) if preferred. Forever Active runs at the following times:
Dryside session - Fridays 10-11am
Pool sesion - Fridays 11:15-12midday
