Our Aquatic Circuit classes provide a full body workout. Combining intervals of cardio and conditioning exercises to burn fat, strengthen muscles and increase endurance. Our classes are structured to ensure every fitness level is addressed and catered for, through a great workout in an enjoyable and private setting.
Classes are a mix of strength circuit training, aerobic style cardio, and boxing techniques. This can be made easier by the buoyancy of the water, with less impact on your joints. You also have the option to make it harder by the resistance of the water should you choose to move harder and faster!
We can modify exercises to suit your ability and/or to safeguard any injuries.
Numerous benefits of our circuit style aqua classes include:
Family SwimFit blends a mix of general swimming training and aquatic cross training techniques incorporating exercises such as kettlebell pool runs, dolphin dives and controlled breathing swims just to name a few. It is ideal for swimming families who want to keep on top of their swimming fitness and don’t necessarily want to endure the hard-slog of traditional squad training.
The SwimFit session is self paced and geared for swimmers of all abilities, however, participants need to be able to swim 25M at a time over a period of 60 minutes. The session is filled with short sharp quality swim sets, recovery swims and walk-throughs, lots of banter all in sync with the latest play list of pumping vibes.
The Family SwimFit session is headed by Coach Dan, a two time Olympian in the sport of Water Polo. Dan is a National Premier League Water Polo Coach bringing a wealth of knowledge to the program with a Diploma in Sports Coaching as well as over 30 years experience in elite sport as both athlete and coach.
First time SwimFitters are invited to attend a FREE trial session. This is a great opportunity to test the waters so to speak! This is also a great opportunity to grab a few friends or family members and bring them along too. Working out is always better in groups 🙂
If you want to continue continue after the free trial session, you can pay casually (per visit) or by purchasing a multi visit pass of either 10 or 20 visits. The beauty of the SwimFit session is that it’s a casual program. There is no booking required, you simply turn up as your schedule allows.
Here’s an email we recently received highlighting the importance of our Water Safety Program.
Hi East Lakes Swim Centre,
I just want to say a huge thank you for everything you do. But in particular I want to praise your Water Safety Program.
On the Easter weekend, myself and my girls were staying at a hotel in Sydney. The hotel had a pool. Both my girls are students at your swimming school. Miss 3 is not yet confident in the pool.
Miss 7 was in the pool. Miss 3 entered the pool when my back was turned and had a drowning incident.
On entering the water, Miss 3 sunk straight to the bottom of the pool. I turned around to see just the very top inch of her head above the water. She was standing vertically on the floor of the pool, nearly completely submerged. Miss 7 realised quickly that her sister could not breathe and swam and lifted her up. She held her above the water and brought her to the side of the pool, where I lifted Miss 3 out of the pool. Miss 3 was frightened and I was very concerned. I monitored her in the coming weeks. I will never be able to erase the image of Miss 3 standing under the water from my mind.
Miss 7 knew what to do and acted calmly and quickly. I believe that this is a credit to your Water Safety programmes at East Lakes. Thank you so much. You really are making a difference to the lives of our children. Please always keep doing what you are doing.
