MY WORLD - Acqua Gym


more participants here

The only distraction I had during these 2 weeks of repainting the inside of our house was Acqua Gym, which is located in a beautiful house close to Waterloo, with an enormous parklike garden around.

The owner is a former Tennis champion who converted now to a health club, with all kind of activities and amongst others Acqua Gym.





Here you have an overlook of the property



with woods around




It looks beautiful in all seasons. I haven't seen spring and summer yet, because I only started in September.






The swimming pool from outside, from where we have this beautiful view



and from inside, my friend Dominique is posing. The wooden ceiling makes it very cosy and the buddha is watching that nobody drowns



and sometimes, when we have lost enough calories we are going for lunch together after the gym ! That's a good philosophy.

What lovely surroundings for getting some excercise.

It looks brilliant. I wish I had the discipline (and the time as well) to go do something like that three weeks a month (I'm a woman remember)...

I am sure you have heaps of fun. I love the water and it is one thing about summer I truly enjoy - swimming in the sea.

I don't like excercise of any type but think I might be tempted to try aqua gym if I could go to such a very nice house.
