Aqua Board Classes – What to Expect

Expect to have fun, be challenged, and get a good workout!

Floating fitness classes focus on improving posture and balance while enjoying activities such as Pilates and Bootcamp.

You will be using the extra durable Aqua Body Strong™ boards to undertake these balance and strength-based water workouts. The boards are tethered to the pool lane lines, so you won’t need to worry around floating around aimlessly or facing the wrong direction.

The Benefits of Aqua Body Strong Floating Fitness, are endless.

Below are a couple of highlights:

  • Improved posture and core muscle strength
  • Increased balance, proprioception and injury prevention
  • Weight loss
  • Low impact
  • Sports performance enhancement
  • Increased attention span and improved concentration
  • Self-confidence builder
  • Increased strength

The classes are well rounded and designed specifically to incorporate the key principles of core stability, balance, flexibility, strength, power, and endurance. And it isn’t just your physical health that will improve. You can expect to see improvements in your health and well being right from the first class.

But don’t just take our word for it. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a study on the benefits of water-based exercise. They state that people prefer water-based exercise over land based-exercise. They found they can spend more time doing water-based exercises due to reduced stress and impact.

The same study also found that low-impact water-based exercises like our floating fitness classes can help people with chronic diseases. Sufferers of conditions like arthritis enjoyed increased health improvements when compared to those who participated in more traditional exercises.

But What Should I Wear?

You don’t need anything special to join in, although you should plan on getting wet. With that said, we’d recommend modest swimwear and/or quick-dry fabrics like fitted yoga pants or shorts.
