Hydro gym

The municipal swimming pools in Albufeira are to have new state of the art aquatic exercise equipment installed this month.

The new sporting equipment, which includes hydro bikes and underwater step machines, will be used for aqua gym classes, allowing for a form of conventional exercise but in water.

A spokesman from the sports division at Albufeira Cãmara said: “Pedalling, walking, running and step are all options to increase cardio output, improve physical condition and lose weight.”

Enrolment for classes begins on Monday (January 5).
