"Exercise in the water, be fit in old age"

Aquatic Fitness 50+

Aquatic Fitness 50+ is an overall training in the water that addresses all condition and coordinative capabilities a healthy body needs. Aquatic Fitness 50+ uses the advantages of the water combined with training devices. This quite ideal mixture makes this form of aqua exercise a very popular and successful training method.


Aquatic Fitness 50+ is effective, time-efficient and gentle on the joints. Buoyancy and water resistance offer freedom of movement as well as new possibilities of a healthy training for persons above 50 and different fitness levels. And this under easy conditions for joints and muscles.


You can participate in the training, if you want to ease or partially remove the following diseases or ailments in particular: spinal syndrome, signs of wear of the joints, weaknesses of posture, muscles and connective tissue, muscle degradation after longer immobility as well as after fractures and operations, lacking resilience of the heart and respiration, circulatory disturbances and reduction of flexibility.


No other training programme assures all these benefits without negative side-effects, such as they occur when exercising on land. Injuries or painful sore muscles the next day are no longer an issue.


Devices, such as aquatic gloves, pool noodles and pool sticks support the effective training.


It does good and is simply fun to participate.
