Get fit your way
Using a chair for support, these classes emphasize stretching and balance, coordination of breath with movement and attention to creating increased mobility and flexibility. Whether you are new to stretching or may be experiencing joint sensitivity or other physical limitations, this class is for you. You won’t be required to sit or lay on the floor.
Held in Thorbeckes Aquatic Center, these pool-based classes are 12 times more resistant than land-based exercise classes using the same intensity. Regular participants experience smaller waist lines, increased muscle strength and flexibility, and reduced lower back pain. Low-to-no impact with high fitness returns. All levels and abilities are welcome. For questions about aquatic fitness classes, contact the Aquatic Center: [email protected]
