Aquatic Fitness

Aqua Zumba

 

 

Perfect for those looking to make a splash by adding a low-impact, high-energy aquatic exercise to their fitness routine.

There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba®class so you can really let loose. Water creates natural resistance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles.

 

Deep Water Jog

Excellent cardiovascular and muscle training for individuals looking for an alternative to running or those seeking a full body, non-impact, workout. Class is held in the deep-end using a buoyancy belt and other floatation devices.

Open Swim

 

Open swim is an unstructured swim time for all age of participants. Participants have access to slides, rope, life jackets, balls, and rings. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult or someone 14 years or older who is with the child at all times. Participants are required to swim 25 yards (one length) continuously before swimming in the deep end without a life jacket. Participants wishing to swim lengths should use Lane Swim times.

Lane Swim

Lane swim is a structured swim time to maximize endurance and is a great workout! Participants must be able to swim one length of the pool continuously. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Slide, rope, and toys are not available at this time.

This time can be used for groups to organize themselves for some aquatic friendly competition. All team sports, so bring a friend or group! If not come in solo and practice skills with another group.

  • Underwater Hockey: A non-competitive adaption from the true sport, participants use goggles, mini-sticks, and a sinking puck for equipment then use teamwork to score on the opponents net. Shallow water recommended and flippers are optional.
