What is AquaFIT?
AquaFIT classes can be extremely challenging using the properties of water such as inertia, leverage, resistance, drag and buoyancy with uplifting music.
The majority of participants attend Aqua classes for fun, stress relief, weight control and sociability.
For many, aqua classes are beneficial if they are unable to work in a gravitational environment (ie land based classes) and find that the reduced impact on the body when immersed in water makes exercising so much easier.
Unfortunately there is sometimes a perception that people tend to be less fit to participate in water classes but this simply isn’t the case!
Aqua classes actually provide a hard workout if that’s what you’re looking for.
Everyone is at liberty to work at their own pace in an aqua class.
A Workout For Everyone
A water workout is possibly the only exercise which certain groups of people are able to participate in.
For instance, those with arthritis, back rehabilitation, post surgery and seniors.
Having said that, you are just as likely to find elite swimming squads, triathletes, football teams and regular gym-goers using water to train in.
