Last weekend I completed another speciality training on the Zumba fitness programme. This time was aqua Zumba, which is literally taking the party of a Zumba class to the swimming pool !! I had an amazing day meeting and working with Abbey Addams, a ZES specialising in many of the Zumba areas. Not only was the day informative it was thoroughly enjoyable because Abbey brought energy and enthusiasm to the studio learning right through to the pool masterclass.
Aqua classes can be seen as an ‘easy option’ but I was surprised to see how much work it would actually be. It uses the principle of using the water as your training tool to have a resistance effect. Like any class you can have easier options but with the formula of the Zumba programme you can also push yourself for a more intense workout.
The class is great for anyone wanting something lower impact so whether it be that your recovering from an injury, have joint problems or simply want a different type of training aqua Zumba can be the answer.
I’m so excited about bringing this new class to my weekly schedule as its not widely accessible with very few places offering it. It’s a more modern approach to aqua fitness using music as the basis for the session. Like regular Zumba the class is choreographed to high energy music to get you in the party mood. Watch this space for related news and fingers crossed it won’t be too long before a session appears on my timetable 🙂
