Fitness Classes

Water Aerobics

This water exercise class has something for everyone and is suitable for all fitness levels. The class includes a morning stretch, thermal warm-up aerobic training, as well as strength, core training, flexibility and balance. Because the water creates more resistance than land, this workout is efficient and easy on the joints, and participants get a great workout without sweating. Various water levels are used to create variety and to alleviate the need to swim. Your instructor has 25 years of experience and is trained by the Aquatic Exercise Association, an internationally acclaimed organization with the highest standards. She believes that exercise and fitness are crucial to each individual’s physical, psychological and emotional health.

Self-defense techniques and movement drills, without striking, will also be taught.
