Aquatic fitness is one of the most popular forms of exercise today. Many people are choosing to exercise in water as part of their fitness regime or as a low-impact alternative to exercising on land.
At AquaPhysio we are able to offer a variety of aquatic fitness activities from aqua-running, to exercising against the current, using the underwater treadmill to one of our aquatic fitness classes.
