A brand new class to encourage men into the water has been launched by Bletchley Leisure Centre this month.
Water Polo Fit is a water based fitness class based on the principles of water polo that gives men all the high intensity of a gym or sports work out without putting added pressure on joints and muscles.
Sarah Clark, Manager of Bletchley Leisure Centre, said: “When men think of keeping fit at a leisure centre they tend to think that the gym or a spin class is the only option for a high intensity workout as many water fitness classes are geared towards women with music and dance style content.
“Water Polo Fit provides all the high intensity that men like to get from a workout in the gym but is kind to joints and muscles. It is also more social than working out on your own in the gym. Many men enjoy water polo when they are on holiday so we want to encourage that interest as a regular workout option.”
The coach-led class runs on Wednesdays from 6.30pm to 7.15pm and participants must be able to swim confidently in deep water. It costs £4.50 per class and is free to existing members.
