About Fitness Connection
Located in the heart of South Sound, this is a family fitness and aquatic facility that offers over 50 adult fitness classes every month.
Classes include water aerobics and aquatic boot camp, Pilates fusion, Yoga, Cardio kick boxing, Tabata circuit training and specialty boot camps, as well as personalised training sessions.
They teach ASHI CPR/AED courses as well as SAI Safety Training Aquatic Rescue Courses and Starguard Life Guard training.
Fitness Connection has been a Starfish Aquatic Institute Training Centre for over 29 years. They offer a variety of programmes for all ages and abilities from private to group swimming classes, as well as intensive learn to swim programmes for adults and children.
For adults they offer specialised training for triathletes as well as lessons for non-swimmers. Their water fitness classes are great for a total body workout, utilising a combination of exercises and training methods perfect for pre-natal and post–natal exercise. They are also great for those seeking to increase muscle tone and improve overall fitness.
For children they offer swimming lessons, dance classes, karate and kids kick-boxing as well as after school programmes, holiday camps and birthday parties. They do kids pick-ups from school, making it easy for working mums. Your child can be picked up from school at 2.15pm (for example), taken back to Fitness Connection where they will have a group swimming lesson at 3pm and afterwards they will do arts and crafts, and can play and bounce on the trampoline. Parents can then pick up their kids at 5.30pm. They will not want to leave!
Their ongoing ISCA programmes in kick boxing, personal training and Mat Pilates, AEA (Aquatic Fitness Instructor Certification), as well as SAI swimming instructor training courses, are well regarded. The instructor/owner, Laura Ribbins, has been an international training specialist for over 30 years.
