Are you considering a water fitness program? More people than ever are exploring pool activity programs, and for good reason. Water fitness can improve strength, flexibility and cardiovascular health, decrease body fat, facilitate rehabilitation, improve functionality for daily living, and even enhance sports skills. Water exercise is an excellent way for the older adult or a person with decreased mobility to achieve a higher fitness level. The water’s resistance builds strength and endurance but is not stressful to the body. For an updated schedule of class times, please view our pool schedules.
