Mums-to-be, try aqua natal for free
Mums-to-be can keep active and increase comfort in pregnancy with new aqua natal classes.
Aqua natal is a fun and safe way to keep active during pregnancy, involving low-intensity exercises performed in a swimming pool.
New classes and a free pass
With new classes and a free day leisure pass available to new customers, there has never been a better time to get in the pool.
Kate Blocki, fitness instructor said: "Aqua natal has lots of benefits. The buoyancy of the water offers support whilst you exercise and helps to improve core stability, balance and coordination, as well as helping to reduce back pain.
"It also gives mums some much needed time to engage with their body and their baby, and to meet other ladies who are also pregnant.
"Our friendly instructors offer guidance throughout the session, making it accessible for all levels and abilities."
