Aloha Float is a low impact class on an inflatable base that floats in the water.
An Aloha Float exercise session provides a total body workout, firing the core, whilst delivering for the participant not only a physical and mental challenge, but also a challenge that is FUN.
Aloha Float transforms aqua fitness by using an unstable base whilst floating on water. It delivers a full body workout, with a mixture of high intensity and yoga inspired exercises that can cater for all abilities and fitness levels.
Aloha Float exercising improves posture, balance, strength and stability and gives your core a serious workout. The Aloha workout uses all your muscles to keep you stable on the water and the worst that can happen is that you get wet!
It’s such a FUN way to stay active and improve your fitness.
Aloha Float offers many exercising options, all with varying degrees of difficulty that can be tailored to suit the level of the individual or a particular class.
Here are just a few of the exercises that can be done on an Aloha Float board:
- downward dog
- mountain climbers
- burpees (yes burpees!!)
- push ups
- Russian twists
For those of you feeling a little more adventurous, you might like to have a try at a shoulder stand or a 180 degree jump and spin.Resistance bands can also be incorporated for added strength work.
But maybe you just prefer to take it a little easier and work on your yoga moves?
Remember, the worst that can happen is that you get wet and maybe your friends will have a laugh or two. What I find, is that I am laughing at myself. It certainly is FUN!
Floating exercises can be done at home (in your own pool) or as a group in a recreational pool with an instructor.
For group classes, the Aloha boards are tethered together with each board being 1.5 metres apart.
During classes, your stability on the Aloha board is further challenged when your neighbour either makes waves or falls in the water. The added waves further testing your own legs and core as you endeavour to stabilise your Aloha board.
It’s all about having FUN whilst working out.
