Aquatic Group Fitness
Movement in water is a fantastic form of exercise and Bluewater’s aquatic group fitness program has classes to suit all fitness levels. The buoyancy offered by water supports the body, enabling movement which might be limited or compromised during land-based activities. Some of the main benefits include:
Reduced impact on muscles and joints – aqua exercise greatly reduces the effects of gravity, taking away the stress on muscles, ligaments, joints etc.
Greater freedom of movement – water can support more fluid movement which allows a greater range of movement to be achieved which will help enhance flexibility.
Resistance training – the force of drag from water acts as a weight against which the body must move, with resistance proportional to the speed of movement or effort.
Cardiovascular fitness – unique hydrostatic properties of water means the heart works more efficiently, while the nature of the exercise enables a person to work for longer with their heart rate elevated.
Bluewater aquatic group fitness programs generally run for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Please be there at least 5 minutes prior to the start time and don't forget your water bottle as you need to keep hydrated when exercising. Please note that participants will be granted access to the class no later than 5 minutes after the class scheduled starting time.
