Shallow Water HIIT
Is a 40-minute High-Intensity Interval Training class. Aqua aerobics is one of the most effective ways to get fit, lose weight, strengthen muscles and increase flexibility. When we are in the water, we have freedom of movement and increased range of movement at our joints due to buoyancy and hydrostatic pressure. Therefore, it is very beneficial for those people who suffer from arthritis or ROM problems.
Aqua aerobics is a safe low-impact fun form of exercise which can cater for all levels at the same time, from the de-conditioned to the very fit. It is all about the force we apply to the movement therefore, everyone can work out at their own fitness levels and the teacher will provide options for those people who need an easier version of that movement. Research shows if we have correct alignment while traveling through the water our abdominals are engaged therefore the resistance in the water provides functional core abdominal training throughout the class. In other words, we can gain abdominal strength without having to focus on those muscles.

Deep Water HIIT
Is a 40-minute High-Intensity Interval Training class. As you submerge yourself into the deep end of a pool for a water fitness workout your body becomes nearly weightless, giving you a new kind of workout challenge. While deep water aerobics has a low impact on your joints, it has a high impact on your cardiovascular system, improving your overall health and fitness and aiding weight loss and maintenance. You may wear a flotation belt for support in the deep water or rely on your own ability to float as you perform deep water aerobics routines.
