Fitness sessions on offer

Aqua based

Aqua fitness is great for toning and working the cardiovascular system. We have three types of Aqua based sessions which are working in the deep water, shallow water and a bit of swimming. You don't have to be a competent swimmer to get involved on our programme and we have specialised equipment for the water sessions so you can work to the level you want.

Land based

The land based sessions will involve a mix of circuit training, running, high intensity interval training, gym style workouts and boxing sessions. Most sessions will be held on site at the Napier Aquatic Centre where we have our own private training area, sand pit and use of a fitness gym. Our Boxing session is based offsite and we might plan a session out in the Napier community every now and then (more in the summer/warmer months). Our trainers will cater to the different fitness levels and will have plenty of options to choose from.

Core Conditioning and Body Tone

Core conditioning is all about working on your core strength which will complement all of our other sessions. We will introduce you to Gymstick which is an amazing full body workout in itself. Gymstick is a resistance band type of apparatus that really benefits the whole body. We are the only facility in Hawkes Bay that offers this style of workout.

Fit - nastics

Fit - Nastics is a totally new concept and is exclusive to the Aqua Max Boot Camp. This awesome exercise is about having fun, trying new skills and getting fit. We will be running this session at the Gymnastics centre here at Onekawa Park. There are no expert skills required as you will only be using the equipment at a low entry level. You will be able to experience training on a fully equipped sprung floor with plenty of crash mats at your disposal. One of our Boot Camp trainers is an experienced Elite Gymnast who has plenty of knowledge to offer. Come along and be part of the only Boot Camp in Hawkes Bay that offers Fit - Nastics!
