WATER FITNESS CLASSES

Aquatic exercise is a low-impact activity that takes the pressure off your bones, joints, and muscles. Water offers natural resistance, which helps strengthen your muscles. You can even do aquatic exercise if you don't know how to swim. If you're looking for a way to get your workout in, have fun and feel great when you're done, try one of our water fitness classes.

DEEP WATER HIIT

The popularity of high intensity interval training is on the rise. High intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts involve bouts of high intensity effort followed by varied recovery times. HIIT workouts tend to burn more calories and boost metabolism more than other traditional workouts. Even though a HIIT workout is challenging, it can be modified for people of all fitness levels. Deep Water HIIT participants will be secured with a swim belt to allow safe and free flow movements.

DEEP WATER INTERVALS

Interval training has been shown to improve cardiorespiratory endurance and burns more calories than continuous training. Deep water exercise is a great fitness experience that uses the resistance of the water to improve strength and promotes full range of motion while also minimizing the impact on joints.
