DID YOU KNOW??
All the blinking in one day equates to having your eyes closed for 30 minutes
If you own an Aqua Gymstick, you can use this in the pool and on dry land! Do not use an original Gymstick in water, as the bands are made from a different material and are not chemical resistant. Aqua Gymsticks also have an adjustable foot strap to fit securely around bare feet.

Since finishing Marietta’s mentoring program, I’ve been looking for a regular freestyle class to teach, but I have young children and we are away for all the school holidays. That’s a lot of cover to organise! So with my children’s local state primary school, I have started a new initiative: Easy Aerobics in term time. I’m happy to teach for free, as I need the practice, plus it is great fun and good for my own fitness- otherwise I would have suggested that when the class grew to a certain size, I could start being paid. Everyone pays $5 to do the class, and staff exercise for free. All proceeds go to the school.
This month I have decided to write about something a little closer to home. I want to say thank you to my youngest brother Samuel.
Begin by lifting the leg, which has both bands around the foot. Whilst balancing on the opposite leg, extend the leg to stretch the bands and press the stick with the same arm. Make sure to change the bands on to the other foot and do both sides!
Since then, I have done between 45 -60 mins of Gymstick everyday, (haven’t missed one day), I haven’t one niggle with my hip and the desire to stretch out tight muscles is NOT overwhelming and I credit this to ROM achievable with Gymstick and ..as you know, the sharing of acceptance of load across more muscle groups.
One other lovely thing is.. I have been doing my workouts in my little flat aqua shoes (for reef walking ).. Don’t need runners…. No impact!!”
Using only one dumbbell as buoyancy and resistance tool, this DVD will demonstrate how you can challenge your cardiovascular fitness and core muscle strength. As only Marietta knows how, this DVD will deomstrate a multitude of ways adumbbell can be used to create interesting movement patterns and deep water core exercises never seen before. If you are looking for a deep water workout that does not require lots of equipment, but can achieve an amazing workout then this is the DVD for you.
Only 10 copies of this DVD remain and no more will be printed. This DVD has a secret (well a slight mistake really!) extra workshop on the disc. Not only do you get Deep to the Core, but also Deep and Meaningful at no extra cost!
