Water provides an ideal environment for strength training, cardiovascular workouts, balance training, and rehabilitative exercise. Water workouts are low-impact and provide a natural resistance that promotes muscle tone, reduces pain, and increases flexibility. It is also a favorite prenatal exercise to reduce swelling and stress.
Group lessons are not for everyone. Don’t give up! Try a private or semi-private lesson. Lessons are available for all ages and abilities. Private lessons are 30 minutes with a 1:1 student to instructor ratio.
Splashing around in the water is more fun when you do it with friends and family. Our branches offer family and youth recreational swim time. It’s a great way to bond, build comfort in the water, and practice skills. Visit your branch website for the most current schedules.
