Get Yourself Fit!

The Bucks & Milton Keynes Sports Partnership is coordinating an aquatics project to try to encourage adults to be more physically active and to improve their health through aquatic activities.

Activities such as aqua fit, aqua jogging and polo fit are a more sociable way to work out, making exercise a more enjoyable experience. There is also the opportunity to improve swimming technique with adult swim clinics, swimming lessons and swim fit sessions. All sessions are instructor led to help you get the most out of your time in the water.

Water based activities are low impact by nature, so lend themselves well to those who are less mobile or rehabilitating from an injury whilst still offering a good cardiovascular workout.

"Make a Splash" activities have already been established at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, Aqua Vale and The Chiltern Pools, with plans to develop many more activities in pools across the county very shortly.

More info here on Learning To Swim and Fitness Classes at Aylesbury's Aqua Vale - but probably nearer for us over the border in Oxfordshire (not part of this project) is the Thame Leisure Centre.
