Did you know that ‘pretzels’ are not just a tasty snack and ‘flowerpots’ are not just found at Bunnings?

    Pretzels and flowerpots are also synchronised swimming moves and you can get in-‘synch’ with these moves by joining a small group of adults on Tuesday evenings at the Victorian University Aquatic and Fitness Centre, Footscray.

    And it’s not just for women! Golden Fish Synchronized Swimming club organise adult synchronised swimming sessions where everybody is welcome to give it a try.

    Grab your bathers and meet at the Golden Fish banner on pool deck, where our friendly team will organise a FREE introductory session. Try it on a Tuesday this year and if you love it, start your New Year with a splash on the new Thursday evening sessions.

    Artistic swimming offers a real variety of activity with elements of swimming, dance and gymnastics being combined in sessions which are low impact and where fun and fitness are emphasised. Health benefits include improvements in core strength, flexibility, muscular strength, aerobic capacity, stamina, endurance, confidence and teamwork.

    Whether you want to improve your health, find a creative outlet, or just try a new way to have fun in the water, this could be the recreational activity for you.
