5. Deep Water Running – Aqua Energy

6 out-there exercise classes you can take in Gippsland

If you’ve always wanted to be a runner but never had the time or energy for it, you might like to give this a go. Deep water running is essentially just that, running in deep water. The simulation of running while being suspended in deep water by the use of a floatation belt is something different, to say the least. It is great for anyone wanting cardiovascular training and muscle conditioning. Deep water running takes the pressure off your knee joints. Get your togs on and get ready to run your heart out.
