The best part about working out in the water is that the intensity is always your choice; you get to choose how fast or slow you move, the range of motion you use and how much focus you put into each movement. The instructor is there to guide your movements, give you cues for intensity, help keep you safe and encourage you to have fun. Water fitness is great for any body type, any fitness level and you don’t have to be a good swimmer. Working out in the water is always low impact, alleviates stress on joints, increases flexibility due to water pressure, builds endurance, increases muscle strength, burns calories and is cooling and fun!

Monday - Power 30
Tuesday - Aqua Dance
Wednesday - Shallow Water

Power 30
Thirty different movements done for one minute each and then repeated. In this workout you will have the opportunity to challenge your body’s fluency of movement, build your movement vocabulary and build muscle memory for everyday tasks. With each movement done for a concentrated amount of time you can work on perfecting the motion and fitting it to your body. The second round gives you the chance to speed up for greater intensity or make the movement more mindful to build muscle memory. Themovements are chosen for range of motion, relation to daily tasks and fun!

Aqua Dance
Warm up, build up muscle stamina and dance your heart out! In this moving and grooving aqua fitness class there will be rhythmic movements and patterns done as a group. We will build up skills and movement combos turning them into little choreographies. We get to splash and giggle as we move to the music and get our sweat on.

Shallow water Aqua Fit
This is a low impact total body workout designed to increase the heart rate. We will move in different directions and use a variety of water props to keep it interesting and keep the mind alert and the body moving. Water resistance makes your whole body work for each movement even though it feels like you are just having fun!
