Aqua Aerobics classes offer you something different to a traditional gym workout and you’ll really see a difference in your overall health and fitness.

Typical Aqua Aerobics 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.

Benefits of aerobics 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.
  • .. it’s fun! It is not often you can say that about a workout.
  • Not only is exercising in water good fun, it’s also amazingly good for you and comes with benefits it’s 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.

Also, the equipment will be provided by Fitness Matters so all you have to do is turn up in your swimwear.

See the Group Fitness Timetable for class times.
