Aquatic Group Fitness

Our warm-water swimming pools offer the ultimate in aquatic exercise. Water fitness classes—like Aquacise—will get your heart pounding and your muscles working. Water aerobics use the natural resistance of the body against the water to improve endurance, flexibility, and core and use both the deep and shallow sides of the pool. Seniors especially love water fitness!
