A new fitness tool for winter

Struggling to exercise this winter because it's so cold out there?

We have the solution for you!

Come and enjoy the warm environment of the AC Baths with our new Aquaboard Fit course. The classes see participants balancing on floating boards on the water and incorporate stretching and strength exercises to increase fitness.

Our trained instructors will introduce you to the skills and drills you need for Aquaboard Fit – so it's great for beginners!

We run six weeks of classes on Tuesday nights between 6.30pm and 7.30pm, and launched a trial course earlier this year that was hugely popular.

­There are eight places available in the next course which starts Tuesday, August 22.

Pools and activities operations manager Nigel Newbery said aquaboarding was a fantastic way to improve core stability, balance and strength while learning new skills.

"There's also the added bonus of staying warm at the hot pools and not having to brave the weather!" he said.

"We had a great response to our first round earlier this year and are looking forward to introducing more people to the Aquaboard Fit experience."

For those who want a high intensity work out, they can then also participate in Thursday lunch time classes that use all the learned skills.

Details for both classes are below. Bookings can be made at the AC Baths reception.
