On Wednesday 30 August half of our Main Pool will be closed from 4pm to 7.30pm. Aqua Cardio and Lane Swim in the other half will both start 15 minutes later.
Make a splash at an aqua class at Riverside Leisure Centre for a fun, low impact way to get fit.
Exercising in water builds cardiovascular stamina, strength, and flexibility, helps burn body fat, increases circulation, and can help you rehabilitate healing muscles and joints.
You can attend a class in shallow end if you aren’t too confident in water, or in deeper water if you want a challenge.
Great for toning up, Aqua aerobics is a pool based exercise class that will increase your heart rate and work your muscles against the resistance of the water.
Aqua aerobics is similar to a land-based aerobics class, but because it is in the water, it places less strain on your joints.
This is class runs for 45 minutes and is a medium intensity session.
- 45 minutes: £7.30
- 60 minutes: £8.30
- 45 minutes: £6.60
- 60 minutes: £7.50
