Water aerobics is a low-impact workout that can be as easy or as challenging as participants want it to be. It is great for those with joint, mobility, or balance issues, but is appropriate for anyone interested in exercising in water. Each class will consist of a warm-up, cardio and resistance training segments, and a cooldown, all performed in the waist to chest-deep water. Please wear appropriate swimwear to class, and don’t forget a towel, drinking water, and dry clothing. You may also be comfortable in a swim cap, water shoes, or goggles.

Note: If the pool closes due to weather, we will meet in the Group Fitness Rm. 2.
