ADD WATER FOR BETTER HEALTH

All Water Fitness Classes come with a membership to the Y and are also offered to non-members at small rate. Our classes are taught at all levels of intensity. We suggest that you check with your doctor before starting any exercise program, and that you bring any special limitations to the attention of your instructor. Shallow Water exercise classes do not require swimming ability. Water Fitness classes provide low and no impact exercises using the resistance and buoyancy properties of the water.

Aquacise
This class is designed to allow individuals to exercise with less impact on the joints. It is a safe, efficient and fun way for people of all fitness levels to exercise. The workout involves nearly all muscle groups, while the water’s buoyancy provides extra cushion. Each class allows you to exercise at your own pace, helping to tone and improve your strength and flexibility.
