Learn with Swimtastic

Fun and Sociable
Connecting your enjoyment to the water is at the heart of everything we do. Enjoy a fun low-pressure work-out with like minded people in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Easy to Learn
The movements and routines are designed to be accessible for all at a low intensity.

Burns Lots of Calories!
The water resistance actually increases the workload on your body; burning more energy than the same workout out of the water.

Improve Fitness Levels
With water providing natural resistance and support at the same time Aqua Aerobics is simply a great way to get fit.

Easy on Joints and Muscles
Movement is slower and the body is naturally supported and suspended when in water.

Recommended for Injury Rehabilitation
All the reasons that make Aqua-aerobics great for fitness can be applied to Injury Rehabilitation. Low intensity movements combined with water support, resistance and suspension make it ideal.

Experienced and Supportive Instructors
Swimtastic instructors are known for their expertise and their friendly, hands on approach to tuition.

Warm Pools
Our pools are temperature controlled so you don’t have to work hard to feel comfortable.

What do our customers say?

Swimtastic courses are full of energy and fun. I've done adult lessons and my children have completed the Junior lessons. I'm looking forward to my Aerobics term, if my previous experiences are anything to go by, it will be great. I haven’t been exercising regularly in the past couple of years, and this is a good way to get back to it!

Donna McManus, Newbridge

I've been with many swim schools and clubs over the years, and I have to say that Swimtastic are the most professional and supportive I've encountered. I have had a leg injury and have not put much pressure on it. The instructor ran through a sequence with me, and it helped greatly. The water is great for gentle resistance.

Jane Paulovic, Kilcullen

I needed to do something to start getting back fit but that wouldn’t bee too strenuous, and the Swimtastic Aqua Aerobic class was exactly what I needed. Great fun, lots of support. I enjoy the warm pool and it feels like a great way to have a morning just to myself. The first term has been lovely. Thank you.

Lis Cox, Portlaoise
