The Fitness Pool

Take part in classes or swim some lengths in the Fitness Pool

The Fitness Pool is 25 metres long, has 6 lanes and is of competition standard.

When the diving board is in use and during Aqua Zumba classes the length of the Fitness Pool is temporarily reduced to 20 metres.

During public swim times the lanes are divided so you can pick a lane speed that suits you – slow, medium or fast. We also have ample spectator seating, a slide and a diving board!

Swimmers are asked to exit the Fitness Pool 5 minutes before the end of a public swim session to allow staff time to prepare and clean for the next booking

Swimming uses all the muscles, so whether you swim gentle breaststroke or hammer butterfly, you will get a full body workout

Just 30 minutes of swimming three times a week is one of the best ways to stay fit and healthy

Swimming regularly can lower stress levels, reduce anxiety, depression, and improve sleep patterns

Swimming is one of the most effective ways to burn calories. A gentle swim can burn over 200 calories in half an hour

Swimming just 30 minutes a week can help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes

Water supports up to 90 per cent of the body’s weight. So if you have a long term injury or illness, swimming is a brilliant way to stay active.

Just 30 minutes of swimming three times per week can boost your energy levels

If sweating puts you off exercise, fear not! You’ll never feel sweaty no matter how hard you swim as the water is cooling you down
