(Aqua + Tabata = tAQUAta)
This course is based off of the Tabata workout, which uses High Intensity Interval Training, to improve cardiovascular and metabolic systems. This course uses the natural resistance of shallow and deep water to power moves without impacting joints. tAQUAta offers a balanced emphasis on cardio, strength, and the core throughout the session (3.5 to 5 ft. deep)
Aqua Fit Deep: Uses deep water jogging and exercises to challenge and strengthen the entire body including the core. This class is held in 6-12 feet of water, in a vertical position, feet not touching the bottom to improve overall fitness. Flotation belts, noodles and other equipment are used but comfort in the water is recommended.
