Aqua Aerobics

Aqua Challenge - A 45 minute water class with minimal impact on your joints. Tools are used to increase the resistance of the water leading to a satisfying yet very effective class. A challenging cardio and strength workout in the water, improves endurance and flexibility. An excellent cross training activity.

Deep Water - A 45 minute class that is done while suspended in the deep end of the pool with the use of a flotation belt. This is non-impact exercise that will suit most people, including those with weight or joint problems. Work on building strength in your core muscle groups (abdominal/back). It's a real calorie burner!

Spin-on-Water - A 60 minute deep water class just like a spin class on a spin bike - except you will be in the water!

Water in Motion - The newest aqua workout that provides low impact/high energy challenge for all participants, all ages, skills and fitness levels. A 60 minute water workout.

Waterworks - A 45 minute minimal impact water class that focuses on basic movements and patterns designed to gently condition muscles, improve range of motion and improve the rest of the day. You do not need to know how to swim.
