What we do in this class

AUT Millennium’s Deep Water Running sessions have been specifically designed to help improve aerobic fitness and running technique in a non-weight bearing environment.

It is biomechanically the closest cross-training method to actual running, providing a fantastic aerobic training stimulus. Deep water running is perfect for those currently suffering from injury, or who are on the path to recovery.

The AUT Millennium DWR sessions are designed and led by running coach Kiri Price. Kiri has completed over 120 marathons herself and has successfully used DWR in not only her own running career, but also with many clients in assisting them to reach their athletic goals.

*A lower intensity session which is suitable for beginners, recover and rehabilitation.
