Welcome to Coastal Aquatic Fitness! Founders Sabrina & Heather met as swim instructors at La Petite Baleen Swim School, in Half Moon Bay.
Sabrina and Heather recognized the need for aquatic-based fitness programs for adults on the Coastside…and CAF was born!
We offer classes that will help improve cardiovascular circulation & shape the entire body. Please find below a list of our classes & their descriptions.
Aquapole – Developed in Italy in 2010, this amazing multi-level 45 minute workout will allow you to super-train yourself in the water using the aquapole for grounding. The buoyancy of your body weight in the water helps the execution of the strength training exercises much without burdening the joints. In the many different exercises & grips, even the isometric hold, the abdominals are essential for the correct execution of all the positions. All through the workout, the muscles in the legs & arms are involved. No swimming experience is needed for this class.
Aqua Box – This high intensity 45 minute workout includes warm-up, multi level fitness blocks focusing on kicking/punching combinations using the boxing bag, & cool down. This class stimulates the cardiovascular system, while increasing strength & neuromuscular coordination to improve balance. No swimming experience needed for this class.
Deep Water Run – This 45 minute multi-level, heart-pumping deep water workout consists of a warm up, running intervals, strength building exercises with a cool down stretch. Most of the exercises are performed using a buoyancy belt in water deep enough that you will not touch the pool bottom. The buoyancy belt will suspend you at shoulder level, allowing you to move freely & engage all your muscle groups. Deep water running is a highly recommended rehabilitation tool for sports injuries as well as an accelerated training method used by athletes & aquatic exercise fans. This class does not require you to know how to swim, but have balance & comfort in the water.
Aqua Tabata – This 45 minute workout uses Tabata intervals to get a high intensity cardiovascular & strength building experience. Aqua Tabata is appropriate for all fitness levels & is one of the most popular forms of high intensity interval training (HITT). This class consists of eight rounds of exercises in a specific 20-seconds-on, 10-seconds-off interval. No swimming experience needed for this class.
Aqua Fit – Swimming is the ultimate aerobic activity. There is more breath control compared to running, thus an increased demand for oxygen, causing your muscles to work harder. This 45 minute low impact class will consist of many different exercises focused around swimming. You should know how to swim to attend this class.
