What to expect
Aqua Fit is an aerobic exercise class performed in the water. Set to music, it is the perfect low-impact workout appropriate for people of all ages and fitness abilities. Each class involves warm-ups with moves such as bike kicks and arm scoops. The cardiovascular section engages the whole body in exercises such as jumping jacks, punches and bicycle kicks. Instructors will then demonstrate how to perform water stretches and core muscle exercises.
This is a challenging workout, but the water allows you to push your heart and lungs without putting pressure on your joints. Classes may incorporate light equipment such as kickboards, buoys or paddles to create more resistance throughout the workout.
