Water Exercise

waterThis popular form of exercise is great for anyone looking to get a good workout without the aching and soreness. The buoyancy and resistance of the water allows participants to work hard without the pain. All classes include muscle strengthening exercises and an aerobic workout. Our instructors have professional certifications through the AEA, SCW, The Arthritis Foundation®, and more. Water exercise is offered in both shallow and deep water, but participants do not need to know how to swim. Hydro-Fit equipment is used in all classes and flotation belts are worn in the deep water.
