For everyone wanting to have fun and improve their fitness, spring is here and summer is just around the corner, which means the start of aqua fitness classes. Exercises in the water are easier to do and less stressful on the joints. The hour session involves walking in the water, specific exercises for each joint, aerobic exercises and cool down stretches. You do not need to be able to swim to take part in the classes. “The aqua fitness classes over the past number of years have been a lot of fun, and participants felt their fitness and energy levels improved,” Physiotherapy Aide Angela Ellis said.
The aqua fitness classes will be held on Mondays and Thursdays from 9am to 10am from 7th November. The classes are for adult men and women, and all newcomers are welcome to attend. The cost is $2.50 for pool entry unless you have a season ticket. You can register by calling into the Physiotherapy Department prior to the 7th of November. Some participants may need medical clearance before they can participate in the classes, so register early to ensure you don’t miss out on any sessions.
