A new dynamic exercise session is being launched at Bradford Council’s swimming pools across the District.

Aqua Combat is an innovative sport session that combines a mix of martial arts and kick-boxing in water with uplifting music.

The sessions are taking place at Shipley and Eccleshill pools on Thursdays and Richard Dunn on Fridays.

Phil Barker, Bradford Council’s Assistant Director for Sport and Leisure, said: “This is a great workout that targets all the muscle groups, but without impact on the joints. It’s an excellent way to get fit whatever your age.”

This new class offers a cardio-vascular workout that improves core strength and stability. Whatever your age or physical condition you will be welcomed and coached through the exercise themes by a qualified instructor who can also advise on how to improve your lifestyle through exercise.

Bradford Council Clubcard holders can take advantage as the sessions are included in the price. Alternatively there is an option to drop in to one of our sessions at any of the three venues. Times and days are given for each of the venues below. Places must be booked in advance.
