Aquatic Fitness Classes
There’s something for everyone in the Y’s aquatic fitness classes. If you’re looking for relief from stiff joints, simply love the feel of the water, or want a new, challenging way to burn calories, we have you covered. All classes are available to minor dependents (10+ years) when accompanied by adult.
This is a moderate intensity workout done mostly in the shallow end of the pool. The instructors incorporate 30 minutes of aerobic exercise with strength training, stretching and abdominal exercises.
This shallow-water class uses alternating periods of high intensity work and active rest. The class begins with a warm up and progresses to the interval cycles each consisting of a specific exercise to train opposing muscle groups. Well suited for all fitness levels.
Known as the Zumba® “pool party,” the Aqua Zumba program gives new meaning to the idea of an invigorating workout. Splashing, stretching, twisting, even shouting, laughing, hooting and hollering are often heard during an Aqua Zumba class. Integrating the Zumba formula and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, the Aqua Zumba class blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that’s cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief.
