Eccleshill Pool offers new aqua running classes
11:00am Friday 20th September 2013 in News
The Bradford Council-run sessions will be held on Mondays from 7pm to 8pm and Fridays from 2.30pm to 3.30pm starting from September 23 and will cost £4.50 a session.
Aqua running uses buoyancy belts, meaning participants of any age, ability or disability can train together and get results quickly.
It is resistance training using all the major muscle groups, and it is claimed to burn calories faster than any other sports activity.
It offers all the benefits of conventional jogging, but without the risk of impact-related injuries as the water supports muscles and joints, so it is often used in rehabilitation from sports-related injuries. It has also been documented as good for easing arthritis and back pain.
