Use the pool as your fitness tool. Water fitness classes are designed for everyone. You do not need to know how to swim to take a class. Our instructors are trained and certified through the Aquatic Exercise Association (AEA), the leader in Aquatic Fitness. Water fitness classes are great for weight management, improving flexibility, muscle toning, and strengthening.
How do I join?
Before the start of your class, check in with the front desk. You can pay a drop-in fee or purchase a punch card. Classes are ongoing, and the punch card has no expiration date. The first class is free, so 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 can follow instructions without disruption.
