Aquatic fitness

Are you a keen swimmer looking to improve your endurance and stroke technique in a friendly group environment?

Aquarena's aquatic fitness programs cater for most swimming abilities from ages of 13 to older adults. Swimming is a great form of exercise as it provides a whole body workout without placing extra stress on your joints and it can help improve your cardiovascular fitness.

Swimming is an ideal form of exercise that avoids the orthopaedic stress and strain on muscles and joints that commonly occur with land based activities. Regular exercise in the aquatic environment is an ideal way to enjoy the benefits of a training workout program that will enable you to stay fit, healthy and well.

Swimming regularly can effectively assist in the following:

  • Improved aerobic fitness and endurance
  • Reduced risk of heart disease
  • Increased relaxation and well being
  • Increased energy and fat loss
  • Improved muscle tone
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improved muscular endurance
  • Increased flexibility

Lap swimming program
