Water Fitness Class Fees
This 50-minute cardiovascular workout improves your range of motion and muscular strength with no impact on the joints. The class uses different flotation devices to assist you in a total body workout. Kick, tread and scull your way to a fit body. You will find this class especially challenging to the abs and thighs. Participants must be comfortable in deep water with no support. Knee and hips injuries don’t get punished from constant pounding.
This class is taught in the lazy river of the leisure pool. You use the strong currents to gain even more water resistance then you would in our other Aquacize classes. Due to the nature of the class and the 87 degree water, if you have uncontrolled High blood Pressure or could be pregnant you should not take this class. You must wear water shoes so you don’t cut the bottom of your feet.

This class is designed for individuals with arthritis. It is not intended to replace a prescribed regimen of therapeutic exercises. The warmth and buoyancy of the water can help decrease pain and/or stiffness and help improve or maintain joint flexibility. The Leisure Pool is kept at a warmer temperature and allows for easy access. The class takes place in shallow water so you do not need to know how to swim to participate. All of our instructors are certified through the Arthritis Association. Please remember to check with your doctor before starting any exercise program.
