Water Fitness Classes

When it’s too cold outside to run and you are getting sick of your normal gym routine, it’s time to trade in your sneakers for a swim suit and join a water fitness class. Many athletes turn to the pool to switch up their winter workout. Water workouts provide excellent cardiovascular and strength training benefits. Instead of weights, the water provides resistance training. Our natural buoyancy in the water means less stress on joints and muscles, which reduces the chance of injury and soreness. 

We offer a large range of water fitness classes that can be tailored for any fitness level. See page 11 of The Winter Guide for specific class locations and times.

Some water fitness classes have the option to use special equipment to help with flotation or resistance. A water belt is used for deep water running classes to keep the body comfortably submerged but the head well above the water line so that arms and legs benefit from the resistance in the water.  Gloves and water dumbbells offer additional resistance to work the arms, shoulders and back. Water shoes can protect feet for a class done in the shallow end of the pool. Some water shoes provide extra support for high impact classes while others offer ankle support. Most classes provide water equipment for loan or purchase if it is a requirement for the class. Participants are encouraged to call the course instructor for their class to find out about optional water equipment.
