With a mission to inspire people to swim, Speedo, the world’s leading swimwear brand has joined forces with global fitness trend, AquaPhysical to provide fitness enthusiasts with a new and exciting way to stay Speedo Fit. At an event at the Otters Club in Bandra, Mumbai, yesterday, they also announced the launch of Speedo’s H2O Active Collection, a versatile eco-friendly new work-out collection for women to wear in and out of the water.
Their first Floatfit class was launched with Bollywood actors and fitness enthusiasts Rhea Chakraborty and Tanishaa Mukerji. The popular Floatfit Classes will now be touring the country, attracting fitness enthusiasts in Delhi, Bangalore, Pune and Chennai.
AquaPhysical’s popular Floatfit Class is a low-impact, cross-training workout on water taken on the world’s first fitness float—the aquabase. The full body workout perfectly demonstrates the full potential of the H2O Active collection, with classes incorporating a mix of both water and land-based exercises using the aquabase board.
Both the actresses were seen enjoying the mix of HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) and yoga movements on water using the aquabase.
Speaking on the occasion, Murali De Singh, Business Head at Speedo India said, “Water workouts no longer just mean lane swimming; with the help of training aids and HIIT exercises. Fitness enthusiasts can now achieve more in the water than ever before. At Speedo, we’re always looking for new, exciting water workouts which will not only provide a challenging all body workout but which can also be great fun. The Floatfit classes by AquaPhysical are a low impact, exciting and fun way of exercising in water. It provides a complete body workout incorporating strength, stretch core, balance, alignment, bodyweight and barefoot training all at once. We’re sure we’ll see a great response across the country to this new exercise format and hope to then take these classes to more cities across India!”
Leila Francis-Coleman, creator of AquaPhysical, added, “Taking the fitness world by storm, AquaPhysical has created a unique, effective and challenging way to exercise using the movement of water. We have invented the revolutionary aquabase, the first ever floating exercise mat now selling to clubs and individuals worldwide. It adds a new, effective dimension to an everyday workout and often participants don’t realise it’s actually an exercise class until they wake up the following morning! The Floatfit classes are also great fun!”
Made with the modern fitness enthusiast in mind, H2O Active is designed for those who want more from their workouts. Fashionable and functional, the new H2O Active S118 collection comes in confident and bold colours of black, blue and orange teamed with energetic prints inspired by water. The new collection includes crop tops, capris, shorts, briefs and swimsuits, allowing it to be mix-and-matched to reflect personal style and use.
Designed with comfort, durability and style in mind, H2O Active is made from an innovative and sustainable fabric that lasts twice as long as standard swimwear. Powerflex Eco, which is created from 78 per cent EconyL yarn. Econyl is an innovative regenerated fibre which turns waste from fishing nets, manufacturing by-products and even carpet into first grade nylon fabric—creating a functional fabric that’s also kind to the environment.
