Aqua Aerobics classes are held at selected State Swim schools, in the comfort of our heated indoor pools. Aqua Aerobics classes are a great alternative to higher impact gym classes, and these classes provide swimmers with a fun group training session and the chance to make like-minded friends.
Wondering if Aqua Aerobics is for you? Here are three reasons why you should consider Aqua Aerobics classes with State Swim:
1. Increased fitness.
Swimming and walking in water improves flexibility, muscle tone, muscular balance, endurance, lung capacity, and the body’s circulation.
2. It's good for your mind.
A workout releases endorphins, boosting your mood. Other welcome effects include reduced pain perception, stress relief, a reduction in anxiety levels and even better sleep.
3. It's better for your joints.
Aqua Aerobics classes are low impact, which means they are well-suited for those with injuries or joint issues. In waist deep water, the body has to handle only 50 per cent of its weight. At chest height, the number is closer 25-35 per cent, which means those easing back into exercise or with weight loss goals can lessen the stress on their joints and, in turn, avoid injury.
