Aqua Fitness Classes
Workout in the water to improve all major components of physical fitness without joint-jarring impact and overheating experienced on land! Balance and range of motion are also addressed during these classes.
All fitness levels are welcome. The water’s resistance provides for muscle toning of every muscle at every angle, in every direction! Cardiovascular stimulation is emphasized in each session with options given to suit everyone’s fitness level.
These classes are conducted in chest-deep water, so no swimming skills are required.
