Water exercise is a great low impact activity to keep you healthy and fit. Aqua sports are run by qualified instructors and provide a safe and gentle environment for exercise. The programs we offer are:
We have a number of different programs and class styles on offer. No matter what age or ability you are, we can provide a comprehensive workout that leaves you feeling great. We provide floatation devices, music and qualified instructors to take you through the routines. Classes are run in our 25-metre indoor heated pool.
We have a range of classes available for our over 50s members. The low impact workout is a great way to keep fit and keep moving while having the protection and resistance of the water around you. Our qualified instructors take you through steps at a slower pace to give all participants the support they need. Classes are run in our warm water pool.
Gentle Water Exercise classes
Run by a qualified physiotherapist, we recommend these classes for people with disabilities, injury or sensitive joints. Your workout will be in our purpose-built warm water pool and tailored to your health and fitness needs.
