Water Based Group Exercise Classes

We have water based exercise classes in Newhaven and Lewes.

Being in water makes you lighter but increases resistance against your body, so pool-based classes are great for an all-over workout with the benefit of lessened impact on your joints.

Please note, our water based classes are for those aged 14+. For all classes, we suggest wearing comfortable swimwear that you can move freely in and bringing along a water bottle. If it's your first time to the class don't worry, our classes are for all abilities so please work at whatever level is right for you. Let the instructor know it's your first time and they will help you get started.

Some of our water based classes include other elements of fitness. Use the key below to find the class that's right for you or take a look at our timetables here.
