Aqua-fit classes are available every week day, morning, afternoon or early evening.  Availability and times on request.  These classes are loved by all and give you a tremendous workout.  Cost R70 per class.  Using music to inspire movement is great fun.

Individual Programmes:

Therapeutic Aquatic individual classes are available and are an effective way to strengthen muscles, improve balance, and generally improve overall fitness and movement.  This allows you to work out while your body heals and speeds recovery after injury or surgery.  Whether it is a problem with your foot, ankle knee, hip, back shoulder or neck, book for some individual therapeutic sessions.

Individual attention assists elderly clients and those with balance disorders.  Become stronger, more active and fit without fear of falling.  Wear a flotation belt to feel safe and secure.
