Featured News New Classes Are Set To Make A Splash For Coventry Sports And Leisure Centre By RyanPatrick1980 Posted on December 20, 2016 4 min read 0 675 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr Unique exercise classes are set to make a splash when they are introduced at a Coventry leisure centre. Hydro bike sessions are to become a brand-new feature for fitness fanatics at Coventry Sports and Leisure Centre. The bikes are similar to those used in spinning, but the equipment is submerged in the shallow section of the pool and bring additional resistance to make it an even more substantial work out. Hydrospin combines the best elements of indoor cycling and aquafit to provide a work out that incorporates the key elements of cardio, strength and endurance – and is fun A total of 16 bikes have been purchased for the Fairfax Street-based centre – one for the instructor and then 15 for customers to use. Classes will be introduced in January and will be integrated into the varied programme that is already available at the centre. Richard Parker, manager of Coventry Sports and Leisure Centre, said that hydro bike classes were still relatively rare in the UK and their introduction provides customers with an exciting new opportunity to get fit and have fun. “Fully qualified Instructors will lead the classes, which are similar to regular spinning sessions with differing music beats and themes, but it’s all done in water. “Not only that, the bikes are extremely stable and there is no risk of them falling over in the pool.” “Non-swimmers or those who are not water confident do not have to worry as the classes will run in the shallow splash pool with lifeguards in attendance for additional support, so they are more than welcome to take part and enjoy. The bikes are designed to work on the core body strength of individuals and the cardiovascular system. A variety of classes are being planned to go ahead throughout the day, evening and to cater for everyone. Richard added: “There will be a range of low impact sessions and then more high intensity ones so that there is something for everyone.” “Bikes will be removed from the pool after each session, so it will not impact on any of the swimming sessions.” For further information about any classes offered by Coventry Sports and Leisure Centre visit www.coventrysports.co.uk or call 024 7625 2525.
