Oh, and exercise too! Come along everyone – you truly don’t want to miss these fabulous classes. Imagine this… fantastic music, engaged passionate knowledgeable instructors and lovely like-minded people all there to improve fitness, gain strength, and you guessed it… have fun! These are not your everyday fitness classes… these are specially designed AQUA fitness classes – where magical properties reduce stress on joints, and resistance during all movement facilitates a highly beneficial overall body exercise… and don’t forget, the aquatic environment is also great for recovery from injuries! If you haven’t tried working out in water, then you definitely should. We have a range of classes, and I know you’ll find one that’s suitable.
AquaLow: If it’s moderate intensity, minimal impact you’re after, AquaLow may just be the perfect class for you. We offer three 45-minute Low Intensity classes a week, designed with your joints in mind. Your knees will thank you as you enjoy the weightlessness and resistance of the water while improving fitness and toning muscles.
AquaHigh: If it’s intensity, energy and a heart pumping workout you seek, try this class. You’ll increase your cardio fitness, gain strength and tone muscles during a session where all exercises can be scaled to suit your ability. With four high intensity classes per week your fitness will improve in no time.
AquaDeep: Taught in deep water with buoyancy belts, this incredible class has no impact at all… but don’t think for a second that you’re not going to get a great workout! This is our highest intensity class and a favourite of many. Your core stability, endurance and cardio fitness will all be tested… but the results will be well worth it, and the fun will keep you coming back for more. We have two deep water classes available each week so come and give it a try.

Aquafit! Music! Movement! I love it, and you will too.
I teach; small group AquaMove classes in warm water designed to improve mobility and strengthen slowly. Fun and challenging high and low intensity AquaFit classes with great music and amazing people. Deep water classes, an amazing way to keep fit with no impact on the body. Aquafit works the whole body, with core and posture just a couple of my favourite things to concentrate on.
There is so much fun and social goodness to be had in these classes! I have 10 years of experience teaching water fitness, and I’m here to help you.
I have been teaching Aquafit for two years. I believe exercise should be fun and challenging, while being rewarding enough to keep you motivated to come back for more. I also believe that exercise is not only key to one’s physical wellbeing, but more importantly to one’s mental wellbeing.
