Four people in pool doing an aqua class

Exercising in water builds cardiovascular stamina, strength, and flexibility, helps burn body fat, increases circulation, and can help you rehabilitate healing muscles and joints.

You can attend a class in the learner pool if you aren’t too confident in water, or the diving pit if you want a challenge.

Aqua aerobics

Great for toning up, Aqua aerobics is a pool based exercise class that will increase your heart rate and work your muscles against the resistance of the water.  

Aqua aerobics is similar to a land-based aerobics class, but because it is in the water, it places less strain on your joints.

This is class runs for 45 minutes and is a medium intensity session.
