Exercise Classes

Aqua classes and Hydro Pilates provide a great mix of traditional gym workouts whilst using the benefits of water. The water gives you additional support for your body, reducing stress and pressure on your joints and muscles whilst creating resistance to build strength as you push and pull the aqua dumbbells, kickboards and woddles (pool noodles) through the water.

Wet Spa

If you are looking for some relaxation, then head to the wet spa and unwind for some ‘me’ time. Soak those tired muscles in the warm hydro pool and use the sauna and steam room to open up your pores and flush out any toxins and impurities. Spending some time in the wet spa will allow you to escape from the stresses of everyday life, leaving you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
