Get  A​​​qua​ Fit!​

Molyneux Aquatic Centre offers a Water Workout on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9am-9.45am.

Cromwell Swim Centre also has Aqua Fitness on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6-6.45pm; Tuesdays  at 8.30 and 9.30am; Thursdays at 9.30​am and Fridays at 8.30am.

** Note: from 1 September 2017 the Friday class at Cromwell Swim Centre will move to 9am. **

No classes run during school holiday periods. 

These classes cost an extra $4.50 on top of pool entry to participate in.

Water workout /Aqua Fitness and aqua jogging are a popular way to keep fit. The low-impact forms of exercise, in which the participant wears a floatation belt, offers the fat burning and endurance building benefits you would get from other forms of land-based aerobic activity. The main advantage of exercising in water is that it offers resistance in all directions due to the cushioning effect that water provides. It is particularly beneficial to the elderly, overweight or those with concerns such as arthritis.​

​Have a Pool Party 

​If you've got a child's birthday coming up consider throwing them a pool party at our pools. It's a hassle free way to entertain little mermaids and pirates, giving you a venue where they can splash around, burn off energy and being noisy doesn't matter. You can relax and enjoy the children's fun with minimal fuss.

At just $3 a head per child (normal entry fee) it's a pretty cost-effective option for a 'priceless' day's fun and laughter.

Talk to pool staff about your plans for the day and they can help make it happen.

Consider a barbecue lunch to feed the party-goers after they've had their dip in the pool. You can hire the pool's BBQ for $5 per hour and borrow trestle tables to set up pool-side.  Nothing beats serving up a Kiwi favourite of sausages in bread to a hungry group after they've worked up an appetite splashing around in the pool!

Birthday pool parties are best suited for 5 to 12-year-olds. Please note our pool supervision rules with regards to children under 8 years of age.
