Aquatic Exercise – February is the time to get FIT!
Was one of your New Year’s resolutions to get fit? Often people fail by February as we try the same old forms of exercise and get bored, or go to hard too soon and get injured, and ultimately fail. So, maybe it’s time to try something new? The benefits of training in water for both […]
New Year’s Water Safety Resolutions
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Maybe this year, rather than the usual “eat and drink less, go to the gym more, pay off post Xmas debt” promises, we could all commit to some Water Safety resolutions? 5 people drowned in less than 24 hours on New Year’s Day last year across Australia – please, let’s do better […]

Aquarobics changes lives!
Having been an Aqua Instructor at Nepean Aquatic Centre for 8 years, I’ve seen some participants come and go, attend seasonally, or attend specific days, times or classes, there is no “one size fits all” approach to Aqua fitness. However, there are many dedicated regulars who attend lots of classes every single week, and have […]
Surprising statistics – 1 year old’s are at greatest risk of drowning
Royal Lifesaving Australia last week released a report suggesting that one year old children are statistically at the greatest risk of drowning in Australia, with the risk of drowning tripling after a child’s first birthday. 41 per cent of drownings among kids under five occurred in one-year-olds, with 202 recorded in the past 17 years […]

The […]
