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!
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.
