Plunge into aqua!

Seniors Living
Participating in aquatic activity isn’t just fun, it’s also great for your wellbeing.

Our team at the Churches of Christ Little Mountain Aquatic Centre shares their top five benefits of swimming for people of all ages.

  1. Low impact | Aquatic exercise is done in a weightless environment which alleviated painful joint, and water offers a natural resistance, which helps strengthen muscles.
  2. Variety | Water isn’t just for swimming! There are many different types of activities that can be done in water including walking, aqua classes, and even just holding on to the side and kicking; so no matter what water you choose, you’ll never get bored.
  3. Social | Go to the pool with your friends! Or just make some new ones when you’re there.  Social interaction has many great health benefits.  Connecting with others is known to enhance both your mental and physical health, as well as providing a sense of community and belonging.
  4. Fitness | Aquatic exercise can increases strength and balance and has been proven to reduces stress, and improve heart health and sleep quality.
  5. Accessibility | Heated pools enable you to enjoy the water year-round, no matter the temperature outside.
