After almost a year’s building work, the swimming pool is ready. Swimmers will be able to enjoy two new activities in addition to a refurbished gym.
As for the new features, children aged 6/7 and over can learn to swim like mermaids and dolphins do. The Aqua Mermaid and Aqua Dolphin activities will be supervised by an experienced coach and will enable the youngest participants to tone their whole body and feel more confident both in and under the water. The classes are run on Wednesday afternoons and are strictly for children who already know how to swim (a swimming test will be carried out beforehand).
Two new classes
For experienced sportsmen and women in good physical condition, an Aqua Power+ aquagym class, taught in and out of the water using weights, elastic bands and mats, and with upbeat music, aims to provide a cardiovascular workout. Less physically demanding, the Aqua Relax class focuses on stretching and breathing exercises set to gentle music.
In addition, the gym at the sports complex has been converted into a new area for gentle activities, with classes in pilates, yoga, stretching and more, supervised by a specially recruited coach. The size of the facility means sessions will be run in a “cosy” setting for a maximum of 6 to 8 people per session.
