Any-Body Club Gets Wet!

Posted on: November 8, 2010

As a part of the Any-Body Club season, the University Swimming Pool hosted a session of aqua fit and swimming, for students, staff and members of the local community.

The aqua-fit was hosted by the lively, enthusiastic and very animated Anna Lavan from CP Sport (you should be able to see her below in red, in the photos below). The session was planned in for 45 minutes, but we ended up running it for over an hour as everyone was enjoying it so much.

Around 12 people joined in the session, which started with a warm up and then gradually built up momentum. Anna, demonstrated her reptoire of dancing moves and by the end of the session had covered the conga, salsa and even a bit of cha-cha-cha.

The ABC goes conga-tastic!

Woggle time - using the resistance of the water to work the arms.


Anna’s enthusiasm and banter, really seemed to make everyone smile, which was great. Personally I think that Anna had the best workout of everyone!

After the exertions of the aqua fit, we opened the pool for everyone to have a swim and get some tips from our swimming teachers > Anna (after she’d cooled down!) and Sarah. Some of those who took part picked up tips on how to improve their breaststroke leg kick, front crawl arm pull and some of the less confident swimmers even managed to get their feet off the ground.

Swimming tips from Anna and Sarah.

….Next up for Any-Body Club is Kwick Cricket on 20th November, 1 – 3pm at the Jubilee Sports Centre.
