Aqua fitness classes are some of our most popular group fitness classes here at Activ8. They are fun, social and are a great way to meet new people. There’s lots of benefits. Not only will it help you lose weight and tone muscles, you will improve your strength and improve your fitness without putting too much strain on your joints.
Aqua classes are perfect for all fitness levels and abilities as you can workout at your own level, without any pressure to push yourself too hard. This means that if you’re new to exercise, or just getting back into it, then you can gradually work harder each session. Each time you attend, you’ll be building up your stamina and, importantly, your confidence.
You don’t necessarily need to be a great swimmer for most aqua classes and if you’re less confident, you can stand in slightly shallower water and stay closer to the edge of the pool. This means that if at any point you need a break you can step away, while you’re also less likely to get splashed if you’re not in the middle of the class. Meanwhile, making use of extra floats can also offer extra support.
Getting started with aqua is simple. All you need to bring along is suitable swimming attire and a bottle of water. All fitness classes must be booked online prior to your arrival at any of our clubs. Activ8 members can book up to 8 days in advance and non-members 7 days. To book click here.
