Aqua classes

Published May 11, 2020 12.00pm

Our aqua class programme is due to restart from Monday 17 May.

See our Swimming pools re-opening information page for information on how to use our leisure centres and swimming pools safely and the changes in how you will enter, move around and leave the building.

Our aqua classes

Our aqua classes are pool-based classes, using the resistance of the water and aerobic style moves. This is a great way to work out in a fun environment, while removing any impact on the joints. It is especially good for injury rehabilitation.

These classes are available at our pools across the county - visit our our swimming pools to find out the latest timetable information. Examples of classes are:

  • Aqua balance
  • Aqua cycle
  • Aqua jump
  • Aqua zumba
  • Gentle aqua

Watch our video on Aqua Jump and Aqua Cycle.

Aqua class details

Aqua cycle

A underwater spin on a traditional cycling class, Aqua cycle involves pedalling against the resistance of the water, while the buoyancy reduces the impact on your muscles and joints.

Available at Chester-le-Street pool.

Aqua fit

Experience all the benefits of an aerobics class but in the water. Water adds support and resistance to your body and our instructors will make sure this resistance is maximised to increase the intensity of your workout. If you thought a water workout was easy, then think again.
