Aqua Fitness

We offer a large selection of aquafit classes free to our members. The general public may pay a drop-in fee to attend the class.

Experience a fitness class in the pool! Water has a thousand times more resistance to that of air so it can provide an awesome workout. It is suitable for everyone as all movements use the body’s own resistance.

Our Aqua Fitness classes vary between 45 to 55 minutes in length and are led by a team of highly-qualified instructors. The components of all fitness classes include: a warm up, cardiovascular conditioning, muscle and core strengthening, and stretching. There is an average of 17 Aqua Fitness classes that run weekly. They vary in intensity and fitness level so as to meet the needs and abilities of all our adult and/or senior members.

We are now offering limited pre-booked spots in Aqua Fitness classes.
