So as you all know the Lifeguards do a very important job in keeping you all safe in the pool and sometimes have to be the disciplinarians to keep everyone safe.... but those of you who come to Aqua classes will often see a different side to them which often comes out only after a couple of cocktails ....Yes when they get their dance on! So who is the best dancer Alice, George or Sam! Please put your answers in the comments below!

Our classes are;
⏩ Led by the Islands leading Instructors
⏩ More classes than anyone else on the Island (nearly double!)
⏩ Classes across all disciplines from High intensity through to relaxing yoga.

⏩ Commitment to early morning classes 5 days a week at 06:15.
⏩ Minimum of 3 classes a week at weekends.
⏩ 6 x Aquafit classes a week
⏩ Additional classes within The dedicated Functional Fitness suite
⏩ Our classes are not a secondary thought a put on in the corner of the gym - All take place in dedicated studios or the whole pool.

All this provided in your local Covid secure facility!

With the St Marys traffic system nearly completed our loyal Members from Newport are finding it much quicker to get here and home again so I thank you for struggling through to make your classes, gym and pool sessions. So please don't let the short trip from Newport put you off coming to the best facility on the Island! (in my humble opinion 😛 )
