Fitness Programs

Due to Covid-19 our fitness room is closed and dryland fitness programs have been suspended until further notice.

Aquafit programs are scheduled regularly in the Aquatic Centre and include two levels of intensity - AquaModerate and AquaMax - offering workouts to suit all fitness levels. Swimming skills are not required for aquafit classes and the fee for all classes is regular pool admission.

The aquatic centre offers a well-equipped fitness room that is open for public use during all public swim hours (with the exception of programmed circuit weight training classes). Adults can arrange a fitness room orientation with a certified instructor at no cost.
