Aquababies Global has evolved from 30 years of research and hands on experience working with families and listening to their needs. Working with various Aquatic Businesses around the world has helped us to identify the demand for new innovative Family Aquatic Programs. Not only do we provide educational programs that teach essential Life Skills, safety and Family Aquatic exercise, but also to provide rolling business models.

Our Baby Swimming techniques are successful due to our proven points of difference. Our educational teaching curriculum with lesson plans inclusive of the learn, play, train method offers guidelines and support for teachers, whilst encouraging them to explore their creative flair.



Our experience of developing and delivering successful baby and toddler swimming programs for the past 15 years has given us a unique insight into this market. Parents are always commenting that they are getting a work out during the classes, an unexpected bonus! We are constantly evaluating our swimming programs in our desire to be the best. It was through this process that we began to look at how we could incorporate more structured exercise into the baby swimming classes and so PABA FIT was born!


We are passionate about what we do and we will provide excellent exercise programs for parents based on the PABA FIT program. We will offer continual professional development courses in the way of training programs for each individual activity - PABA Fit, Yoga, Bollywood and Salsa.

We aim to be the first call for all programs in the areas in which we operate and to become the overall market leader nationally. We offer a friendly, efficient administrative service. We will target a customer base of new parents and offer them reasonably priced, good quality, PABA FIT courses. Adults will learn how to exercise with their children whilst introducing basic breathing exercises, water safety and confidence techniques in a safe and clean environment. Parents can also keep fit with our innovative programs. We aim for 70% retention of customers.

Always evolving, Julie-ann developed a revolutionary new aqua based fitness and baby development product for parents with their babies called PABA FIT.

PABA FIT has several variations; Fit, Yoga, and our latest, Latin Swimba.  Why not work out whilst having fun!

These inspiring programs were originally created for mothers suffering with Pre and post natal depression. The body can have a powerful effect on mental well being and therefore moving your body and getting some exercise is a great way to make you feel good!


The world’s first Aqua Parent & Baby Spa Concept. A relaxing program where both parent & child bond together combining PABA FIT Yoga movements and Aquababies swimming techniques. On top of that, children can enjoy the sensory experience with jets of bubbles, colourful lights, music and lots cuddles from their parents. This is an ideal franchise product where Aquababies can provide you your own spa pool and an extensive training program to enable you to run a unique rewarding business.

What are the real benefits of this program?

  • a relaxing exercise for both parent and child

Parents may choose to hire the pool purely for fun and bonding whilst relaxing and enjoying the sensory experience. The bubbles and jets fountain help to stimulate touch, colourful lights which helps stimulate sight and bubbles and music to stimulate our hearing.

  • Its suitable for different age groups

There are two levels based on the age of the child. The first is for parents with babies up to 12 months; the second for toddlers from 12 months upwards. This two age groups ensures that the children are engaging in age and ability appropriate activities and that the workout program is adjusted accordingly.

  • Private Time Together

This program is also ideal for couples to enjoy quality time with their baby together in a private environment. The Spa area is private with fresh clean water each session. You can either have a teacher give you instruction on the combined techniques of swimming whilst enjoying the different sensations of the bubbles, lights and music. Or you can just hire the area for both parents to have fun and relax with their child.

What are the benefits For Babies?

Water is a great equalizer for babies and they can achieve some level of independence before they can crawl. The water provides support and they love the fun and freedom of the whole experience. More importantly, the classes will:

  • Provide water safety training
  • Build water confidence
  • Teach basic breathing exercises
  • Provide some of the basic foundations of swimming
  • Encourage physical, social and psychological development
  • Enhance their awareness
  • Improve eating and sleeping patterns
  • Promote co-ordination.

All this provides the foundation for an active and fit childhood, which is wholly beneficial.

What are the benefits for Parents?

  • Physical 

PABA Yoga is an excellent method of exercise which improves the fitness of the heart and lungs, tones the body and reduces fat. It is an ideal form of postpartum exercise as it is kinder to joints as the water supports some of the extra pregnancy weight. Body weight issues are important to postnatal women and exercising in a private spa helps to reduce self-consciousness.

  • Physiological/Bonding 

This program also offers a outlet for parents to spend time together with young children, commonly cited as a valuable experience for new parents. The multi-sensory environment of the pool opens up whole new experiences for children. The classes are a good opportunity for parent/child bonding as they involve plenty of physical and eye contact and they also enjoy the an unique form of interaction.



Swimming for both a parent or child with a disability can be very rewarding. The water can provide so many health benefits.
