New Cardio Equipment coming soon
20 November, 2018
Gym floor CLOSED from 9pm Friday 7 December - 5am Monday 10 December
for the delivery and set up of our shiny new equipment!
At Aquafit, we want to provide the best in health and fitness for our members. While our current cardio equipment is great, the new equipment will offer improved functionality and updated technology as well as additional pieces previously unseen at Aquafit. We are very excited about this upgrade and the ability to provide our members with the latest range, best experiences and state of the art technology to help you achieve your health and fitness goals.
Over the second weekend of December, we will be closing the gym floor to facilitate the bump out of our existing equipment and set up of the new. This closure will affect the gym floor and RPM studio only, with classes running as usual in Studio 1 and 2. Aqua classes, pool access and change room facilities will be unaffected.
We can’t wait for you to see (and try) the new pieces! We are so excited that we have arranged for the early delivery of a couple of machines for you to try out – check out the Technogym SKILLMILL™ and the Technogym Excite® Climb available for trial on the gym floor now!
SKILLMILL allows for a large variety of exercises to improve strength, speed, power, mobility, proprioception, and balance coordination in multiple planes of movement.

Rogue Assault Bike
The assault bike is a retro piece of equipment that has been reborn in recent years. It’s like a standard stationary bike but instead the wheel is replaced with an oversized fan adding resistance, and it really does. Pedalling your legs whilst pushing with your arms spins the bike's fan, the harder you pedal, the harder it gets. How do I use it? It’s a bike, with handles that move. Pedal, push, pull – all at once. Cardio machines usually focus on your lower half. However the air bike is similar to a jazzed-up cross trainer, working your upper body just as hard.
Indoor 15m Sled Track
Currently only performed in the Aquafit outdoors area, we are bringing the ability to train with sleds indoors now too. Sled work involves numerous muscles and joints performing functional movements. The arms and legs work together to coordinate movement, and keeping a strong core is crucial to keeping the body stable as the limbs exert force on the sled and training surface. The practice of pulling and pushing something for time, distance or reps is as true to the core principles of CrossFit and fitness as it gets. If the sled is light, you can try and sprint as hard as you can and it will burn. If it’s heavy, there’s no question that your muscular endurance is going to go through the roof. Our indoor sled track will also create another open space to complete numerous other functional exercises and movements and make a great addition to our Program offerings like Personal and Group Training.
Tanita Body Composition Scanner
To better help you reach and track your results we are adding a Tanita Body Composition Scanner to our everyday offerings at Aquafit. Tanita body composition monitors bring you fast, accurate body composition results using the latest advanced bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) technology developed by Tanita over the last 25 years. These body analysis scales give you a true indicator of your inner health and, when monitored over time, can show the impact of any fitness regime or weight loss programme. Fully linked with Aquafit’s Technogym MyWellness system this will take your training and results to a new level.
In addition to these new pieces, we will also be upgrading our Technogym Treadmills, Upright Bikes, Recline Bikes, Vario and Synchro machines.
We’re doing our best to get this done as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience while we improve our facilities for our members.
