Stay in shape while traveling and being on vacation
With a full-sized gym ready to fit all your exercise needs the gym is open to the resort and public to lean into their health and fitness. Take control of your health and break a sweat before you lounge in our resort!
1. You will be ready when you get home
Taking a week-long break from working out isn’t going to set me back in terms of exercise goals, but these breaks can cause your body to need to get back in the groove of working out once home from vacation. Working out on vacation allows your body to continue its usual pattern of activeness so you are ready to continue once you get home.
2. It’s not that hard to do
It’s harder to not be active on vacation than it is to find time to work out. If you’re worried that setting aside time to complete your workout might take away from the enjoyment of being on vacation, try thinking about the activities you already have planned and how they could be tweaked to serve as a workout.
You could turn a morning walk to get coffee into a walk around the town to discover what’s local to you (coffee still recommended); a dip in the pool could be made into a full-body workout with underwater jumping jacks, treading water, and pool laps; and a bus tour could be replaced with a bike tour.
Top tips to get you ready for a day at the waterpark
Indoors or outdoors, make sure you’ve got spray on sunscreen available. Kids seem to enjoy putting this on themselves, which makes for less headaches and you can actually get your own back when they’ve run off before you can ask for help!
Time and Tickets
This allows you to plan your day and budget for your trip. It’s best to arrive at the park early, this way you will have more time to enjoy the rides, and the lines will be shorter. You will also have a few hours to enjoy the attractions before mid-day when the sun is at its strongest. While water parks are great when it’s sunny, cloudy days will give you more protection from the sun. Ow wait!!! Our park is indoors.
Have a Spot
Select one central spot where you’ll all meet up at designated times throughout the day. This allows the older kids to ride the thrill-seeking Aqua Vortex over and over…and over, while you enjoy the lazy river or spend time with the younger kids in the children’s pool.
Look for Lifeguards
For your own peace of mind, it’s always good to check for the available lifeguards in each pool area. Every once in a while there could be a shift change and it’s just great to know you’ve got your eyes on things.
Consider Swim Shoes
While we might find ourselves lazing on a beach chair with a good book for hours, kids have boundless energy that takes them in, out, up, down and all over the place. Swim shoes are a great option for protecting their feet from hot pavement or a little extra traction as they move so quickly.
Pack your things
Remember to bring sunblock if the park is outside, lip balm, money for tickets and snacks, towels, goggles, a padlock to secure your locker, and a change of clothes for the end of the day.
New Water Park resort coming to Prescott
A new $115 million indoor water park resort which would include restaurants and snack bars, a convention centre and a 140-room hotel is proposed for the Prescott, Ontario area. The Merrickville developer says the AquaWorld resort would attract 800,000 guests a year.
A resort with something to offer for everyone
Aquaworld is bursting with options and opportunities. An indoor and outdoor waterpark, several spa activities, a sports bar along with several great restaurants and snack bars, a fully functional gym along with other sports zones, and a hotel with 140 rooms and a convention centre.
The resort would be built on a 260 acre parcel of land located just one hour south of Ottawa on the border of Prescott and North Augusta Township. The developer says the resort would create 350 full-time and part-time jobs during the peak summer season.
