Aqua Forza Classes Now Offered at Grand Velas Riviera Maya

New Water Fitness Classes Offer Deluge of Benefits Including Cardiovascular Stability and Flexibility

Riviera Maya, Mexico (October 16, 2017)
Aqua Forza Classes Now Offered at Grand Velas Riviera Maya Guests at Grand Velas Riviera Maya in Mexico can now engage in a new aqua fitness class, Aqua Forza. While on floating exercise mats in the resort's serene Zen pool area with views of the flora and fauna of the Mayan jungle, Aqua Forza challenges the human body with low impact routines on water. The exercises use one's own bodyweight so that joints and muscles are protected to avoid any injury. Benefits of the class include improved breathing, blood circulation and heart rate, an increase in muscle mass and endurance and a reduction of stress. Taking place on non-slip mats secured above the water, it also improves stability, concentration and mood. For guests over the age of 16, Aqua Forza is led by qualified trainers who lead a maximum of 6 people per session. Included in the nightly rate, the 60-minutes classes are at 8:30 a.m. on Thursdays at the resort's Zen pool.
Resort rates start at $393 per person per night based on double occupancy and include luxury suite accommodations, à la carte gourmet meals at a variety of specialty restaurants, premium branded beverages, 24-hour in-suite service, fitness center, taxes, gratuity and more.
