Aquafitness for Over 50's

Course Overview

Aquafitness for Over 50’s specifically caters for people aged over 50 years!

Aquafitness is a form of exercise that takes place in a swimming pool. It involves various physical activities and movements designed to improve cardiovascular fitness, strength, flexibility, and overall well-being. The water’s buoyancy provides low-impact support, making it an ideal exercise option for individuals of different fitness levels

The water’s buoyancy provides a great support and resistance, enabling a wide range of movements without placing strain on your body. Aquafitness provides a full-body workout while you enjoy the massaging effects of the water.
