Aqua Jogging

Aquajogging has come a long way since its early development as a rehabilitation exercise. Although still effectively used for rehab, athletes around the world now recognise aquajogging as an aid to gaining and maintaining peak performance. The advantage of aquajogging is that it's totally impact free and no matter what exercise you choose, you can follow the same movements in water. Christchurch has two pools deep enough for aquajogging , QE2 Leisure Centre 13 kms from the city centre and, nearer at hand, Aquagym about five mintes drive from the Square.
