HINDsight: an innovation for aqua aerobics

October’s “HINDsight 2020” – a monthly share where we take a moment to reflect on our history to celebrate and be inspired.

Our founder, Greg Hind, was known for being a thoughtful listener. His discipline to set aside whatever he was doing to listen in to what employees, customers, and friends had to share was truly exceptional and set him apart.

It was in 2010 when his listening to customer feedback moved him to design the GH Aqua Thermal Jacket – a long sleeve thermal top designed to zip on easily and to keep people warmer in the water during aqua aerobics and aqua fitness classes. Available for Women and Men.


The GH Aqua Thermal (Made in USA)
Its uniquely-designed, double-layered mesh body with fleece fabric lining provides wind-resistant and water-resistant conditions great for aqua aerobics, aqua therapy, or warm-up swims. Lightweight fabric in the sleeves allows for good range of motion.

  • Fit:  When fit correctly, it keeps water from flowing through the shirt which keeps you warmer. For a correct fit, the aqua jacket is designed to fit nice and snug. While zipping it closed, the fabric should be lightly stretched and pulled snug for an all-around taut fit.
  • Function:  Lightweight enough so that it doesn’t weigh you down in the water or restrict movements, but technical enough to insulate in cold water or cold weather.
  • Fabric:  UPF 50+, 100% polyester long-sleeve jacket, keeps you warm and lasts against the chlorine.
  • Made in USA:  Designed and manufactured in San Luis Obispo, CA – where all GH Sports wear is made.
