Aqua Relax - Poynton

Description

Aqua Relax is a swimming session for people with specific medical conditions. Swimming is a great way to move more, increase everyday activities and be active. Just because you have a medical condition doesn’t mean you can’t be active or have to stop, and we are here to help.

You can go at your own pace, starting slowly and building up gradually. We welcome a family member or friend to join in the session, offering support and being active together. After the session why not enjoy a drink in our community café at the Crewe Lifestyle Centre and relax.

HOW TO BOOK:

Places need to be booked in advance so we know numbers to ensure appropriate staffing levels are maintained on poolside.

Contact Andy Molyneux on 07506 317055 to reserve your place.

Staff will be available to offer support (if required) at reception, in the changing area and on poolside to give you confidence to enjoy your swim, If you would like a tour of the facilities for reassurance before your first visit please let us know and we’ll be happy to arrange it for you.

  • Do I need a carer to take part in the session?

No, but please check with the centre first. If you’re a competent swimmer your partner/carer can watch from the viewing area at pool side. You are able to bring a friend or family member to take part in the session.

If a customer requires a carer to accompany them when using our facilities such as the swim session, access to that carer will be free of charge.

  • Do I need to be able to swim?

Ideally yes but if it’s a while since you were in a pool and have a person to support you don’t worry. Floating aids are available and the swim session will be in the teaching pool so you are able to stand up at any time. If you have any concerns about your swimming ability contact the centre beforehand and we’ll be happy to advise you.
