Aqua Aerobics

Aqua Aerobics is one of the best ways to get moving without placing too much stress on your body. Perfect when rehabilitating from an injury, or building up strength and retaining fitness, Aquatic Achievers offers great aquatic aerobics sessions in selected locations across the country. 

What is Aqua Aerobics?

Also known as swimming aerobics, aqua aerobics refers to a unique type of fitness program where aerobic exercises are performed in a submerged water environment. With the water’s resistance naturally augmenting the difficulty of each motion, the outcome is a workout that effectively blends efficacy and enjoyment. At Aquatic Achievers, instructors design classes to ensure a balanced and engaging experience. Sessions typically include a warm-up, a main workout segment, and a cool-down, all set to energising music. Exercises vary from basic movements like jogging and jumping jacks to more complex routines that involve water weights, noodles, and resistance equipment.

Benefits of Aqua Aerobics

Aqua Aerobics is a water-based activity that offers many benefits, some of which are unique to it and won’t be found in land-based activities. Here are some of the key benefits you can expect when working out in a water-based environment with our Aquatic Achievers aqua aerobics classes:

Low-Impact Exercise

Due to the buoyancy of the water, the impact on your joints and muscles is greatly reduced, making aqua aerobics an excellent option for individuals with joint issues or those recovering from injuries.

Full-Body Workout

The water's resistance ensures that the exercise remains challenging, ensuring a comprehensive workout. Our classes incorporate a variety of movements that engage both upper and lower body muscles, from water-based lunges that target your legs to arm exercises using water weights.

Cardiovascular Health

Like regular aerobics, aqua aerobics elevates your heart rate, enhancing cardiovascular fitness and contributing to improved circulation and overall heart health.

Enhanced Flexibility

Being in the water allows for a wider range of motion, making exercises aimed at increasing flexibility possible. By performing stretches and movements in the water, you could gain greater flexibility in your joints over time.

Stress Relief

Immersing yourself in water can have a calming effect on your mind. Aqua aerobics has been proven to provide a mental reprieve for most individuals, helping to reduce stress and promote relaxation.

Who is Aqua Aerobics suitable for?

Aqua aerobics is easily picked up and open to participants of all ages and fitness levels, without the need for any training. Our classes are flexible to accommodate any need, whether you’re already fit or a newcomer to exercise. Our aqua aerobics sessions are great for: 


Older adults can reap the rewards of aqua aerobics without the worry of joint discomfort. The water's supportive environment allows seniors to maintain and improve their fitness in a safe and enjoyable way.


Aqua aerobics provides a comfortable and safe workout option for pregnant individuals. The water's buoyancy reduces pressure on the body, making it a great way to stay active during pregnancy.


Those recovering from injuries or surgeries can benefit from aqua aerobics as part of their rehabilitation process. The water's resistance aids in rebuilding strength and flexibility while minimising the impact on healing tissues.
