    We have been absolutely blown away by some of the fantastic feedback from our aqua aerobics ladies over the last few weeks. This is why we do what we do! Here is a few of the wonderful things they are saying about us :)

     

    “I cannot recommend aqua aerobics highly enough. They have proved very helpful with a problem I had with a torn tendon in my upper arm for some time. What is really terrific is that one does not need to know how to swim. I do not know how to swim but now feel comfortable in the pool. We have tea/coffee after our session in the pool which is very enjoyable. The whole aqua aerobics weekly experience is great” (Denise)

    “I enjoy the chat with the girls over tea/coffee. Remi, our instructor, is a gentleman” (Margaret)

    “I find the aqua aerobics very good for joints. It is a great all over body work out. It is also a very sociable occasion and an opportunity to meet new people” (I. Walsh)
