Fitness Classes for Older People

Keeping fit is important for our health, no matter how young or old, but as age begins to catch up, hard core exercise typically isn't an option. There are, however, plenty of fitness classes available for the more mature. Some great suggestions are Pilates, Aerobics, Yoga and the Gym. Shown below is more information.



A great option for those who need to improve their cardiovascular fitness, there's an aerobics class for everyone, whether you're a beginner or an exercise fan. Instructors know that warm up and down is important so you'll be led through the class without risking injury, and though classes are usually aimed at one particular level, the movements can be easily adjusted to suit your own ability. As well as traditional aerobics classes, there are step classes, which burn calories more quickly, and aqua aerobics (aquafit), which is ideal for those who are overweight or who have joint problems, since it is low impact.

PoolView System in the Main Pool

children swimming

As part of our commitment to customer safety a PoolView underwater CCTV has been installed in the diving pit at Halifax Swimming Pool.

The system comprises of 4 underwater CCTV cameras. The cameras monitor activity beneath the surface of the water and feed the views directly to a screen on the lifeguard chair. This allows lifeguards to quickly detect anyone in difficulty in the diving pit, even if they are at the bottom of the pool.

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) is in use throughout Calderdale and a code of practice ensures that data protection principles are complied with.
