Aqua fitness – gymnastics and training in thermal water

Exercise in water is gentle on the joints and highly efficient

Aqua fitness is an ideal full body workout. The physical properties of the water make it the perfect medium to improve endurance, strength and flexibility. The water's high density has higher resistance than air and consequently leads to the muscles working harder during fitness training. Added to this the workout in the water is very gentle on the joints, spine, tendons and ligaments thanks to the buoyancy and near weightlessness. The positive effect of the Ronacher's thermal spring is an added bonus for you.

A whole variety of different training elements combined
