There is soothing background music to encourage relaxation and the professional instructors are mature, supportive and experienced, using gentle motivation and encouragement. The sessions are fun, friendly and non-competitive.

Accessible for all levels of fitness and to non-swimmers or people who are less confident in water. The sessions also help to build confidence in the water, leading to confidence and fitness to engage in other fitness activities and encouraging a healthier, more active lifestyle.

This is an ideal exercise for ante-natal. Read our page for Mums to Be

and for people with:

  • ·       Joint Pain
  • ·       Knee and Hip Replacements
  • ·       Back Problems
  • ·       Stress related Illness
  • ·       Balance and general mobility difficulties
  • ·       Leg problems
  • ·       Rehabilitation after injury or surgery

Please always check with your GP or medical professional before undertaking any exercise programme, especially after surgery.

What to wear? Sports swimwear that cover the heart area - not bikinis or sunbathing suits. 

We also recommend aqua shoes and a rash vest or swim jacket if you are prone to feel cool in water. These items are not expensive. 

For privacy and to protect vulnerable people spectators are not usually permitted at the sessions.
