Are you looking to shape up the way you exercise in the water? Have you ever considered our popular Aqua Aerobics classes? We have a few reasons that may convince you to come down and try it out!

  1. It’s for everyone:
    Not many exercises can say that. Due to buoyancy, things appear lighter because the water is actually helping to push everything therefore, it’s easier on all of your joints.
  2. It’s a great way to socialise:
    Partaking in group fitness activities is a great way to meet people, to speak to others with similar interests, before, after and sometimes during the class!
  3. It’s a full-body workout:
    Just like swimming, AquaFit aims to move every single muscle in your body.

With the winter season upon us, it becomes a little more difficult to get out of the house. However, swimming is a sport you can do all year round, and everyone can participate, especially when we have a heated indoor pool!

Here are our top 4 reasons why you and the family should hit up BayFit Leisure Centre:
  1. Swimming is one of the few sports you can do throughout your lifetime
  2. It does not require lots of special equipment and gear, all you really need is a swimsuit
  3. It creates a reason to get together— a good way to socialise with your family
  4. Did you know that swimming can boost your immune system? When cells in the body regularly get blood and oxygen, they function better

So what are you waiting for, grab your togs and let’s go!
