AquaFitness                                         
AquaFitness is especially suitable for those clients who find land-based exercises difficult due to overweight or joint injuries, and for clients lacking flexibility or stamina.  Aqua exercises give clients a feeling of wellness due to the buoyancy of the water, which helps them have a good range of movement. In most cases this feeling of wellness helps raise the client’s self-esteem, energy levels, and confidence. Those of us in the AquaFitness business know that Aqua exercises give people the “quick fix” they are looking for. Aqua Exercises cater for the vast population of people who just want to get results and feel good quickly.
