Aqua Circuits

Aqua Circuits is for those who prefer a more targeted workout without the dance to music element. Classes are pool based equivalent to circuits in the gym. Covering a range of activities and movements, you use equipment such as weights and specialised floats and move between stations to tone specific muscle groups to provide a resistance training workout under water. Ideal for pre-season preparation and endurance work throughout the year, the workouts are also aimed at improving aerobic fitness.

Aquanatal

Our Aquanatal classes are a fabulous activity for mums-to-be (12 weeks pregnant and above). Experience the perfect balance of relaxation, laughter and exercise - a wonderful way to unwind and stay healthy in pregnancy. The classes take a holistic approach to mums’ physical and mental well-being, combining relaxation with cardiovascular exercises to help prepare the body for labour. Classes take place in the soothing, warm comforts of pools, providing one of the safest ways to exercise in pregnancy. There's a science behind it too! Exercise and relaxation release your body’s natural happy hormones, endorphins, which suppress pain and help you (and baby) feel calm – not only helpful in later pregnancy, but also really important during and after labour. And once baby arrives, the familiar noise of the pool means they’ll be relaxed when you take them swimming too. You can also use the exercise techniques to get gently back into shape!
