Would you like to try something new in the water besides swimming laps? Come try our water exercise classes. Splash is a workout done in the shallow end of the large pool, while Hydro Fit has the same movements but without bouncing since it is in the deep water. With either class you can go as hard as you like.

A basic level water exercise class. By using the natural resistance of water and buoyancy, the exercise works towards improving flexibility, muscular strength and cardiovascular endurance. Discover what your body can do in the water! Co-ed classes, swimmers and non-swimmers welcome.
Exercise that Feels Good Watch us turn the pool into a fitness center. We have buoyancy and resistance cuffs, wave webs and hand buoys. Use our equipment and our guidance and your workout farther than you ever imagined possible! Improve your aerobic conditioning, muscular strength, endurance flexibility and abdominal toning.

Arthritis Swim Program
The Arthritis swim class meets more needs than just people with arthritis. People with knee and hip replacements are encouraged to come and join us as soon as all the stitches are healed. The warm water relaxes the muscles and lets your new joint work easier.
People recovering from strokes and heart attacks are also encouraged to join us. The slow movements are easy to handle and fun to do. This is more a joint movement class than an exercise class. All classes are free to members, we run eleven classes a week so everybody can find several times a week that suits them.
Structured exercise program in the warm water under the supervision of a qualified instructor. Objectives – increased flexibility of body joints and greater comfort for arthritis suffers. No swimming ability necessary. Easy access steps and a pool lift are available. Handicapped parking in front of “Y” and a side entrance ramp available.
