- Trained Lifeguards teach aquafit classes for motivational purposes. The staff are not certified fitness instructors. Please be sure to participate at your ability level and let staff know immediately if you have any abnormal pain or discomfort. Those with medical conditions, new participants and those adding exercise into their life should seek medical advice prior to participating as there is an inherent risk of injury in any physical activity including the aquafit programs.
- Regular Aquafit: A high energy class great for those looking for a full body workout, with fun energetic music. Also great for people with injuries or limited mobility as water is gentle on joints.
- Senior Aquafit: This class is for 55+, the class is a slower, quieter more relaxed version of our regular Aquafit. Music volume is turned down for these classes.
