Aqua Fitness

Water fitness is a great way to condition the body. The water provides a natural resistance and less impact on the joints. Our aquatics department works hard to provide a variety of programs and techniques not only to benefit the body, but to stimulate the mind, wash away stress and rejuvenate the spirit. In addition to frequent lap swim hours, we offer a variety of water exercise classes-all free for members! Classes include:

  • Aqua Bootcamp
  • Aqua Fitness
  • Aquacise
  • Deep Water Tabata
  • Joyful Joints
