Aquatic Fitness classes are a great way to get a workout! Class levels range from gentle to intense and are ideal for those easing back into exercise.

Adult Swim 101 - Improve technique and efficiency in all strokes, making lap swimming an enjoyable fulfilling experience. 

Fit-N-Flex - Shallow to deep water, moderately paced workout that integrates a variety of cardiovascular movements, strength training and flexibility exercises for agility, coordination, balance & fun.

Aqua Beat Down - A great physical conditioning workout for both men and women. A perfect alternative to a land workout. Class includes water polo drills, strength training, cardio, endurance, and muscle toning. If you thought the water couldn’t be an intense workout, then we suggest you try this class.

Senior Cardio & Tone* -A shallow water workout that challenges anyone with fun, time-efficient exercises for muscle toning & strengthening, balance, posture, coordination, agility, flexibility and more! No swimming skills required. Great for beginners as well as advanced.

Water Mind & Body - A beautiful blend of yoga, pilates & dance. Increase vitality, energy & toning in both shallow and deep water. Focus is on stretching for flexibility, pilates moves for muscle strength, and yoga & dance to connect body/mind awareness.

Wave Makers* - Beginning-intermediate shallow water cardio workout, using a variety of equipment to increase endurance, strength, balance & stability for performing daily tasks.

Joyful Joints* - A water-based exercise program, tailor made for people with arthritis and fibromyalgia. Program exercises were developed by physical therapists to address pain, fatigue and decreased strength.

Adult Competitive Swim - This class has limited space available, so come early as this is on a first come basis. Interests range from lap swimmers to fitness swimmers to triathletes and competitive swimmers. Stroke correction, workouts and drills are supervised.

Fluid Fusion - Put an end to your day with the perfect blend of strength training, cardio & camaraderie. This thorough workout in shallow to deep water incorporates the use of barbells & noodles to tone and raise the heart rate. The class is for moderate to active individuals with low to medium impact, yet can be modified for individual needs.
