Aqua Fit

A fun and energetic aqua fitness programme for adults

Higher-intensity, low-impact, yet fun and enjoyable workouts done in time to music whilst in the comfort of a warm swimming pool.

Our Aqua Fit classes can be enjoyed at moderate to high levels of fitness and will provide a full-body water-resistance workout. Our experienced and enthusiastic instructors will bring the challenge with exercises to improve balance, flexibility and co-ordination through water-based cardio and strength-training exercise including jumps, kicks, twists and lunges performed in time to music.

Learn with Swimtastic

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.

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.

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?

A great workout. It’s a better experience to exercise in water. The instructor is great fun and I have loved my first term of classes. The sequences are gradual and build up your strength and fitness week by week. The music and energy of the instructor builds up a good energetic atmosphere. These classes are good fun and worth doing.

Caroline Howe, Athy

Excellent exercise to music and the instructors was very supportive and patient. I’d highly recommend Swimtastic. I went into the first class pretty nervous and not having been doing much exercise. The instructor was patient with me and encouraged and motivated me. I ended up enjoying it a lot and give the course a thumbs up!

Paula Redmond, Portlaoise

Great atmosphere and excellent fitness sequences. The swimtastic staff are very helpful. I started with Aqua Aerobics and then moved up to Aqua Fit. I’ve been through nearly all the Swimtastic programs now, and really enjoy them. I do quite a lot of exercise every week, and this programme I really look forward to. A professional outfit.
