Re-defining Water Fitness

Originating in Italy, this twist on aqua fitness has been available in Australia and New Zealand since last year. It is said to allow for "maximum freedom of movement and includes postural techniques, rehabilitation, toning and choreographic routines" according to Aus Leisure. Its aim is to change the way people view aqua fitness.
