Starts in: on 9 November

Worldwide Aquathon Day

Rose completed an aqua instructor’s course 2004 and a rehab course in 2016, now teaches an impressive 35 classes a week in four gyms and a physiotherapy practice. Her aquathon days started small in 2009. Just one pool full of aqua enthusiasts slicing through the water for three hours, but in 2013 she decided to go global. The reason for the aquathon is to promote the benefits of, and bring more awareness to aqua fitness. 42 countries took part in the first year and has grown each year with over 280 venues in 80 countries. In November these venues – from porta pools to massive public pools to even in the sea – will swing into action with three hours of non-stop, music-fuelled aqua exercises.

“People can do an hour or two, but those who last the full three hours get a certificate.” Hartzenberg said she was overwhelmed with the spread of the Worldwide Aquathon Day which also raises money/ collecting items for charity. There are so many inspiring stories like one man progressed from a wheelchair to a walker. It helps with weight loss, improved sleep patterns and it is also very good for diabetics because it increases circulation and so much more.” Hartzenberg said her youngest pool exerciser had been four and the oldest 90. “Some associate aqua fitness classes with older generation or rehab, but young people are shocked at how strenuous it is. Together, we can unite through the biggest global event to reach many around the world to discover the benefits of Aqua fitness.”
