Aqua Independent and Group Fitness Classes

Our pool is an 18.5-meter (20 feet wide by 60 feet long) indoor, heated pool. Pool water temperature is kept between 85 and 87 degrees Fahrenheit.

Aqua Group Fitness

Increase your cardio health, flexibility, and muscle endurance in our Aqua group fitness classes. Our certified Aqua instructors encourage and motivate our members to give their best in classes that are easy on the joints. The water resistance allows participants to build muscle endurance with a variety of tools like aqua buoys, drag weights, kickboards, and noodles.

Water Walking and Lap Swim

If you have your own aquatic exercise program, you can take advantage of water walking or lap swimming. In between aqua group fitness classes, the pool has scheduled times for water walking and lap swimming.  Each lane can accommodate two swimmers or walkers. Please check the current schedule available at Wellness Center reception for available time slots.
