Aqua Aerobics in Bournemouth

Make a splash with our Bournemouth Aqua Aerobics class '(also known as water aerobics)'.

A high-energy, low-impact fitness class, making it perfect for all ages and fitness abilities. 

Our Aqua Aerobics class focuses on resistance training, using your body against the gravity of the water in our indoor heated swimming pool.

You'll complete a number of aerobic exercises, to music, for a full-body workout that will tone, improve stamina and burn fat.

Aqua Aerobics Techniques

Thanks to the added resistance provided by the water, our Aqua Aerobics class in the Bournemouth Village Gym pool is perfect for those who want to improve their fitness levels with a low-impact workout. 

Our classes include a variety of water-based exercises including aqua Zumba, stretch-based water yoga and aqua jogging to get your heart pumping and improve your cardio fitness. 

Aqua Aerobics Resistance Training

By using the natural resistance of the water, our Aqua Aerobics class in Bournemouth can increase strength, work on your cardio and improve lung function. 

Water is around 800 times denser than air, so it provides approximately 12 times more resistance.

This is why our Aqua Aerobics class is popular with members looking for resistance training classes to tone the entire body. 

Aqua Aerobics for weight loss

Aqua Aerobics classes are a great way to add variety to your weight loss routine.

Moving in water requires more effort than on land, so by regularly attending our Aqua Aerobics classes in Bournemouth, you'll significantly increase your calorie burn.

Expect to burn between 400 and 500 calories per hour in an Aqua Aerobics class*

What To Bring To Aqua Aerobics

If you're joining us for an Aqua Aerobics class in Bournemouth, wear comfortable swimwear that allows you to move whilst maintaining your modesty!

Feel free to wear a swim cap to keep long hair out of your eyes.

Don't forget your towel, plus we recommend bringing a bottle of water to stay hydrated during the class, and a light snack to refuel with afterwards. 

Aqua Aerobics For Beginners

New to our Aqua Aerobics class?

No problem. Let your Village Gym instructor know you're an Aquacise beginner, and they'll ensure they modify any exercises you may find challenging during your first class.

Feel free to make our Aqua Aerobics class work for you. If you begin to feel tired quickly, push yourself as far as you're able then take regular breaks.

Aqua Aerobics for seniors

Our Aqua Aerobics class is much easier on the joints than a studio-based class.

The water's buoyancy supports your body weight, reducing stress on the joints. 

So it's a great class for senior fitness lovers who want to enjoy a full body workout and improve cardiovascular fitness, balance and range of motion.

Our more senior Bournemouth members also love a well-earned cuppa together tea afterwards!

Aqua Aerobics for pregnant women

Many of our Bournemouth members enjoy Aqua Aerobics for post and ante-natal exercise. 

The low-impact techniques and support you'll get from the water make exercising much easier on the back and will help to soothe sore muscles. 

You'll still feel the burn, though Aqua Aerobics is one of the safest fitness classes for pregnant women who want to stay active.
