If you are new to swimming or you want to familiarize your child with this sport, the center offers swimming classes for adults and kids. Swimming sessions for babies and toddlers are also available. The instructors have completed the baby swimming course of the Finnish Swimming Teaching and Lifesaving Association so you can be sure your baby is safe.
Vesipekka has a spacious and modern gym equipped with top-quality equipment. If you are a beginner, you can hire a personal trainer who will guide you through your journey and tailor a personalized training program to help your reach your goals faster. At your request, they can create a nutritional program for you as well. This will speed up your workout recovery and increase your muscle growth rate.
For a gym session, you can choose between an one-part program or a two-part program. The former deals with training the full body during a single workout. The latter involves two workouts where you train your lower body in the first place, then the upper body in a separate session.
