During these unprecedented times, there is no doubt that we all missed our local gyms, work-out classes, swimming lessons, running clubs and so on. It is especially hard when you are isolating at home with young children and finding daily activities to keep them stimulated. For many of us, we look forward to our daily exercise. Once the pandemic of COVID-19 has passed, our Parent and Baby Aquafit (PABA) classes are just what you will need.

PABA is a 30-minute aqua-based workout program for parents and children, designed to improve parents’ fitness and to introduce babies and children to the water.

The concept of parents working out with their children was born out of spending thousands of hours swimming with parents, listening to their concerns, observing them move in the water and recognising that they were already exercising.

The program comprises a series of moderately-paced, low impact and fat-burning aqua aerobic exercises for the parents that integrate with elements of the tried and tested Aquababies swimming program. It’s a fantastic program to help promote bonding with your child, is especially good for post-partum mothers and can help alleviate PND for both parents.

Our classes are great for mind and body and to integrate again with other parents and children after such a long time isolating. Not only will the parent enjoy it, the child will too! Ideal for changing the mindset of parents that have isolated for a long time and proven to help alleviate symptoms of post-natal depression. One of the most commonly cited recommendations for parents experiencing PND is exercise. Having a child is such a life changing experience, some of us may not feel as confident as we once used to. Group exercise and social classes will not only get you moving, increasing the release of those endorphins but also gets you back out into the world. Our program is a great way to meet like-minded people, creating friendships and to have gentle exercise post-pregnancy. These classes are ideal for existing swim schools looking to expand their programs.
