Aquatic Fitness Class Descriptions

MEMBERS: Always check the information board next to the Aquatics Director's office or on the pool side board for occasional closures or club events.

All of our  water instructors are certified nationally and enroll in continuing education classes yearly to maintain their certification and stay current with industry standards.

Exercise in the water is tender on your joints; great resistance for your muscles plus a challenging cardiovascular workout. A good hard workout doesn’t have to be hard on you. Our three wonderful pools are used for fitness classes. The indoor lap/fitness pool and the outdoor pool (open Memorial Day – Labor Day) temperature is 83-85 degrees. The therapy pool is 93 degrees. No swimming skills required (with the exception of power swim training), as you stay vertical.

Aqua Zumba

A mid to high-intensity cardio workout that brings the fun and flavor of Zumba to the water for the ultimate pool party.  Come experience Latin and International music such as salsa, merengue, cumbia, reggaeton and others.  If you worry about shaking it on the dance floor you can shake it in the water without anyone seeing you and have a blast.  This is a great class for any fitness level. You can increase your intensity as your fitness level increases and work at your own pace.  Classes are 45-50 minutes.

Joint Effort

A movement and stretching class designed to enhance range of motion and increase flexibility. This class is for those with loss of mobility, arthritis or any other injury or limitation. Classes are low intensity, 50-60 minutes long and taught in both indoor pools during adult only time.
