Leave feeling like a water goddess after a nurturing day filled with fun filled exercise and nutritious energy producing foods; Including a forest walk with a twist Aqua biking (we all like to try something new), Aqua fitness and gentle stretching. The day starts off at 9am for a 9.30am start and finishes around 3.30pm. Timed nibbles to keep us energised throughout the day include nutritious fruit juices, smoothies, and nourishing food.
All levels of fitness are catered to this is not bootcamp, so you will enjoy the movements both in and out of water. Our indoor heated magnesium pool will relax your tired muscles and help calm your nervous system. There are many benefits of magnesium in the pool and its best absorbed through the skin, so no need to shower off at the end of the day. Please visit our website for further information on the benefits of a magnesium soak. https://17pounds.com/aqua.html
Each exercise session will last about 45 minutes followed by time to relax and get to know each other whilst grazing on energy inducing delicious nibbles, convivial conversation drink selection, and yes there will be coffee! Bring along an extra pair of runners or boots for the forest walk as there are a couple of hills but it’s not a race, it’s a gently walk through tall old trees and lush under growth. A further stroll around the property incorporates the productive vegetable and berry garden with our garden rooms with glorious vistas. Upon return to the pool house, we will enjoy lunch and a conversation about nutrition focusing on the benefits of eating well. After a short rest and time permitting, we may indulge in another magnesium soak, then we will finish with our final stretch session. As the day comes to an end, we say goodbye to our newfound friends, and head home for a wonderful night’s sleep.
The benefits of a Magnesium Pool
It is wonderful for muscle relaxation with the easing of sore muscles, it soothes and moisturises the skin, increases skin elasticity and hair health. Little to no irritation for your eyes, detoxes skin and body, increases quality of sleep & helps with stress relief, it also helps to reduce blood pressure. Evidence suggests that when bathing in magnesium enriched water, magnesium will be absorbed through the skin (transdermal therapy) and can offer the bather these additional benefits:
Soothe the skin, relieving those with sensitive skin to enjoy a swim
Detoxify the skin and body, by way of relaxing the nervous system. Perfect for those facing anxiety and stress in their day to day lives
Softens and smooths the water, enhancing the bathing experience
The physical benefits of aqua & land exercises
Group exercise has the advantage of bringing like-minded people together, at JG Physical Fitness we pride ourselves in being inclusive in all areas of exercise, and this means that we encourage each other no matter your level of fitness.
