Aquatic Group Fitness
AQUATIC GROUP FITNESS CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
All AQUATIC Classes require pre-registration at the Membership Desk. Please no walk-ins due to class limits, with the exception of Senior Aqua Fit. Senior Aqua Fit is a drop-in class which requires sign in at the Membership Desk.
Aquatic Fitness classes work with the body's natural buoyancy to take stress off all the joints to make it easier to work out. Additionally, the water's resistance helps strengthen and tone the body's muscles.
All participants must feel comfortable at least in shallow water. Many classes are performed in both shallow and deep water, but can be modified for participants in the shallow end.
As with any exercise program, please check with your doctor prior to starting any new fitness classes.

This class is for individuals coming out of Physical Therapy from injuries, hip, knee and shoulder replacements, and for those with arthritis or other debilitating diseases. Good posture and balance are worked on and exercises are very basic, slow and easy with no aerobic activities. Please fill out the required Special Participant Information Form and present to Phyllis prior to the start of the class.
