This is a fun social activity combined with specially tailored exercise programmes in the water to enhance strength and mobility for adults aged 55 and above.

Venues:

  • Turf City

Benefits include:

  • Cooling exercise – as temperatures rise and humidity draws near, exercising in the burning sun may suddenly not seem so appealing. aquaFit is a cool, crisp and refreshing way to exercise, and you won’t be struggling in the heat!
  • Increases muscle strength
  • Builds endurance
  • Increases flexibility – as the body is subject to water resistance during aqua-aerobic exercise, the joints naturally increase their range of motion
  • Low-impact exercise
  • Alleviates pressure on the joints
  • Increases relaxation and positive energy
  • Burns calories – the combination of strength and cardio workouts mixed with water resistance in aquatic exercise, ensures the body is getting a full workout. Depending on cardio activity, weight, water temperature, volume and buoyancy, the body can burn between 350-400 calories for 45 minutes of exercise.
