Aqua BootCamp and Gymstick

Aqua bootcamp and gymstick are two of my signature classes that are high intensity yet low, or no, impact. Below are a number of testimonials from participants all ages all stages. They are both aqua aerobics classes ‘with a difference’ – the best in Tasmania. Try them – you will love!

“Deep water aerobics & gymstick have helped me get rid of my sciatic pain that I have endured for 2 years. They have also helped me lose over 5 kilos & tone my muscles without aggravating my back. If you have exhausted all avenues & still haven’t achieved the results you wanted, I highly recommend that you give them a try.”

“Aqua gymstick provides a great overall workout. My physio has confirmed that I have greater mobility and strength since doing gymstick on a regular basis.”

All personal trainers have their favourite tools to work with. For me, a defining point in my development as a PT is definitely the gymstick training. Originally I trained in shallow water aqua gymstick, but then expanded my expertise to create deep water gymstick classes and finally land based gymstick classes and personal training To me, I see this as a time-effective training tool that is multi-directional, easily adaptable in terms of resistance, simple to use and effectively works the heart, muscle strength, core and posture. The by-line is that it’s ‘simply effective’, a ‘gym on a stick’ – I don’t mean to sound like an ad, but I am sold. Not only was I impressed at the training, but my participants got results from day 1.

“Just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with the gymsticks. I got the chance to use one this morning & thinking that this wasn’t for me but decided to give it a go. I found having my feet in the stirrups made me feel the benefit of using my legs more & I was doing a lot more different movements than the dumbbells. What’s more fantastic for me is that recently I have only been able to use one dumbbell because my left thumb has become so arthritic, holding & pushing the dumbbell in the water really hurt & I was feeling frustrated. Now, operating the gymstick is going to be wonderful & will enable me to use both hands.”

“I cannot rave about dwaq gymstick enough! The aqua gymstick IS what’s getting me into shape after baby #3. I can exercise relaxing my tense shoulders & knowing my posture is fabulous. You know you’ve had a fantastic workout when you hop out of the pool feeling like you look like Elle MacPherson.”
