Aquaphysical is introducing new Floatfit classes incorporating their revolutionary Aquabase, think trying to stay up right and keep fit on a paddle board, super fun and much harder than you think. I love a workout that you are enjoying so much you don’t realise how much work you are doing.
They recently announced a partnership with Elite Island Resorts and launched Floatfit in Antigua, and I was lucky enough to try out classes in the most stunning setting, on the Caribbean sea.
Aquaphysical founder Leila Frances Coleman worked with fitness professionals to develop the classes which feature thirty minute HIIT workout including burpees, lunges, squats, v-sits and more in a fun, refreshing environment. Being on water requires constant concentration and core engagement, targeting those hard to reach muscles that are not engaged in conventional workouts. We really struggled to balance on some of the moves, but you fall off, rub the water out of your eyes and just get back on!
The tough, inflatable Aquabase is easy to store inflated or deflated and is surprisingly rigid (like a surfboard) with a really good grip, well until you take a fall.
“We are excited to have launched this brand-new product and know that people of all ages and abilities will love discovering this unique way of working out” says Leila Frances Coleman.
There are six locations in London offering Floatfit classes; the Haymarket Hotel, London Aquatics Centre (Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park), Southgate Leisure Centre, Southbury Leisure Centre, Park Road Pools & Fitness, and Golden Lane Sport & Fitness (Barbican) and more throughout Europe.
The classes are such good fun, you have to try one out.
