Aqua Fitness

Aqua Fitness is a workout in water designed to increase cardiovascular conditioning, improve muscle tone and aid in weight loss.  With minimal impact on joints, this form of exercise is  perfect for all ages and swimming  abilities.  The support the water gives and the resistance it provides makes Aqua Fitness ideal for sport and injury recovery, expectant mothers and anybody who may be starting back into some physical activity.

You control the intensity of your workout and we provide the motivation!

Why Workout in Water?

  • Water adds 12-14 percent more resistance than land, so every move Water Safetyyou make in water  improves strength and increases metabolism (the rate you burn calories, even during  resting).
  • Water provides multidirectional resistance which means your muscle pairs work in balance during the same movement.
  • Water cushions your body and allows you to perform movements that would be difficult on land.
  • Water regulates your temperature and enables your heart rate to stay low while you work at intensity.
