We are thrilled that you guys are liking, loving and sharing our Floatfit video online. Hopefully it has given you the inspiration to come on down to one of our venues to give it a try. If you still need a bit of persuading to give one of our classes a try, we suggest you carry on reading.
Our Health and Wellness Advisor and Floatfit pro, Briony Stewart, has offered up her top tips on how to get the most out of your fitness class with a difference.
Floatfit is a fun filled, action packed 30-minute class which begins with some balancing work, kneeling on the boards and working up slowly to a standing position.
Once you find your feet on the water it’s time for the real fun to begin. Classes vary slightly each week but all routines follow along the same types of exercises such as burpees, squat jumps, press ups and planks.
Instructors will show you variations of the moves so you have the option to start off with a slightly easier version of the exercise and progress onto the harder version when you are ready. Just remember, you can take it at your own pace and take extra breaks if you need to without feeling under pressure.
Here are a few of my top tips to help you get the most out of your first class:
Don’t be afraid of falling in, trust me, anyone who has done a Floatfit class will have fallen in at some point. Just have fun with it, jump back on and get going again. Once you have been to one class you will be hooked!
Now you know all about the Floatfit classes on offer at Sport Aberdeen’s Beach Leisure Centre and Northfield Swimming Pool, all that’s left to do is book onto a class and give it a go, I hope to see you very soon!
