“BodySensei’s Aquacise makes hard work seem like fun in the sun!”
Exercise in the water or ‘Aquacise’ is a great workout for any age, shape or fitness level. If you don’t like sweaty gyms and want to make the most of your outdoor exercise on this lovely island – come try this instead of walking, running or just swimming.
BodySensei Andy’s Aquacise in this video clip:
Aquacise used to be associated with the elderly or physiotherapy only but now it is increasing in popularity all over the world and has become a social, music filled, alternative experience for many. From sportsmen and women, to physically challenged; from overweight to underweight; young or elderly – Aquacise can help you.
Benefit: Low impact exercises and water resistance helps your posture, joints, recovery from injuries and tones all of your muscle groups. This is a type of hydrotherapy that increases circulation and respiration with cardiovascular benefits.
Some More Benefits:
- Total body workout while easy on your joints – very low impact
- Cardiovascular/respiratory improvement with high-energy water walking, swimming or aerobic movements
- Tones and builds muscles using water resistance against your movements
- Improves balance, posture, coordination and water confidence
The instructor leads the class in and out of the pool and these are some examples of my Aquacise moves:

“Is it a bird, is it a plane? No – it’s superman Andy Grant! Wow – does he have springs beneath his feet? I don’t think I’ve seen so much energy packaged into one person! I was lucky enough to have 2 aqua-aerobic classes with Andy – both highly enjoyable – though I’m not sure I managed to keep up all the time . . . The 2nd class ended 40 mins before I had to depart the Resort – but no way was I going to miss it. I arrived with an ankle injury that prevented me from participating in a number of phyiscal activities over the last two years – I’ve now found a class that I’ll be able to continue with on my return to the UK and still have many of Andy’s inspirational and motivational words rining in my ears to ensure I keep it up.” La Source guest
“For someone like me who never took an Aqua-Aerobics class in her life, I can’t tell you how much fun I had thanks to Andy, our enthusiastic instructor and former heavy-weight boxer, who made sure we all kept up with that disco-beat in the pool.”
