In celebration of Women’s Health Week, the Logan West Aquatic and Fitness Centre in Hillcrest will be offering free trials to the community in many of their classes.

Classes include pilates, aqua, yoga, aqua-Zumba, HIIT, Abs Butts & Thighs (ABT), bootcamp, functional fitness, and “sculpt” strength sessions that focus on building and toning muscle.

Logan West Aquatic and Fitness Centre health club manager Yasmeen Millard said the benefits of fitness and aquatics classes included improvement to overall health and increased fitness levels.

“The friendships we see the members developing in classes and on the gym floor assist with people’s emotional wellbeing and sense of belonging – this centre has a really strong community,” she said.

Melissa Raassina, who struggled with a rib and chest injury for more than a decade, experienced a huge improvement since taking aqua classes at the centre.

“Fast forward 18 months and my body is stronger, fitter, and I’m able to lift weights – which I never expected to do again,” she said.

Aqua class participant Lou was able to increase her fitness without suffering joint pain caused by arthritis.

“I bring my mum along, and her balance has greatly improved in and out of the pool, thus decreasing her risk of experiencing another fall,” she said.

Tiffany Robinson joined the centre six weeks after having a baby and said the aqua, pilates, and yoga classes had changed her life.

“My health has improved, and I have developed an amazing group of strong women friends,” she said.

Regular Aqua class attendee Kathy was able to run and jump in the Aqua classes, which she struggled to do on solid ground. She has made many friends at the centre, and they regularly support each other in and out of the pool.

Pilates instructor Maggie Nolan, who also owns a local Remedial Massage Clinic, said she loved seeing class members progress in strength and stability.

For Health Club instructor Alison Read, who often ran with a local group called “Berrinba Runners,” the yoga and pilates helped increase her flexibility.

“I can definitely notice that my core is much stronger,” she said.

The center recently provided free trials for men only to celebrate Men’s Health Week.

Yasmeen said men were also welcome to take advantage of free trials.

Complete access to all classes are provided under one My City membership, as well as the use of the gym and the pool, however Rackley’s swimming lessons require an additional membership.
