Water Fitness Classes
Classes are designed for both men and women. You do not need to know how to swim to take the class. Our instructors are trained and certified through the Aquatic Exercise Association (AEA) the leader in Aquatic Fitness. Classes are great for weight management, improving flexibility, muscle toning, and strengthening.

The first class is free so that you can decide what class is best for you. The minimum age for the class is 12 years or older. Children, ages 12-15 years old must be accompanied by an adult in the water (18 or older) and they are able to follow instructions without disruption.
