Aquafit uses water resistance to improve cardiovascular fitness and muscle tone and remains an extremely popular fitness class for all ages and abilities. Although the class takes place in a pool environment you don’t need to be a confident swimmer to take part as most exercises are done standing.
Water causes the body to become more buoyant and so the load bearing on joints and muscles is significantly reduced making it an ideal class for those requiring rehabilitation from injuries. This form of exercise is also great for those suffering from arthritis, osteoporosis and other joint and muscle problems. As the water naturally cools the body many find the class a more comfortable work out than land based exercise.
For over 60′s we have on offer a Leisureplus discount card giving upto 40% discount off some activities, and a Impulse fitness membership card which allows unlimited entry into the swimming pools, impulse fitness suites and some fitness classes through out public times.
Aqua Fit classes are on Thursdays from 10.15am – 11.00am and Fridays from 12pm – 1.00pm.
