Good Boost Aqua Move is a proactive way at getting and keeping your joints moving in a low impact high reward way.  Good Boost Aqua Move is suitable for anyone who feels they would benefit from using a water-based program and are confident in being in the water. Sessions are led using a water-proof tablet to direct patients through their exercise treatment program.

Good Boost land sessions can be completed either on the main gym floor or in the privacy of a studio if available.  Sessions usually last between 10-30 minutes and can be adapted to suit your required intensity. The Good Boost land app creates personalised exercise sessions. These sessions can be tailer made to each person and use either using bodyweight exercises or equipment found in the leisure centre e.g. dumbbells and resistance bands.

Exercise has many positive effects and may help to:

  • Increase your cardio-vascular fitness
  • Increase your joint range of movement and muscle flexibility
  • Increase muscle strength
  • Reduce your pain levels
  • Improve your balance and co-ordination
  • Improve your mood and mental health

Exercising in water can:

  • Off-load your painful joints, making it easier to move
  • Help post-surgery before weight bearing land-based exercises are prescribed 

Depending on which leisure centre you want to attend, you can book into a group session, with people exercising to a level to meet their own needs or you can attend individually and work by yourself, following the instructions on the computer.  Good Boost co-ordinators or leisure centre staff will be able to support and help you get started and progress at your own pace.
