Get into shape with a pool party


With the weather getting warmer, it's time to shake off the winter blues and get the beach body ready. Maybe you are looking for a new way of doing exercise while having fun. If you love water exercise and love dancing into shape with Zumba, then Aqua Zumba is your perfect choice.

Known as the Zumba "pool party", Aqua Zumba class is a water-based workout that is cardio-conditioning and body toning. This new concept of workout has combined water aerobics with the exhilarating routine of Zumba dancing moves such as stretching, twisting, jumping, bending and shaking, all while making a splash in the pool. If shouting and laughing can also be considered as part of the fun Zumba routine, you can virtually immerse your whole self in movement amidst the electrifying vibes of exciting Latin rhythms.



Aqua Zumba is especially good for older adults and people in cardiac post-rehab situations because the natural resistance in the water has low impact on your joints and allows you to safely and fearlessly attempt new moves. There is no swimming experience required and no dancing background necessary, all you need is the willingness to smile and join the fun.



Currently in Sydney, the Aqua Zumba classes are held at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre. There are two classes each week: Wednesday 6:45pm and Saturday 8:00am. The class runs for about 45-60 minutes at the Shallow Water section. You can purchase your tickets at reception. There are two types of tickets: Casual Visit: Adult $18, Student $14, Pensioner/Senior $11.50 and 10 Visit Pass (valid for 3 months):
Adult $162, Student $126, Pensioner/Senior $77.

To be well prepared for the class, you can bring a pair of aqua shoes, towel, aqua hat, some energy snacks and of course, your swimming suit. For more information about the class, please visit the Sydney Olympic Aquatic Centre website.
