Aquafit Shallow Water: A fun and energetic aerobic exercise class, using the water for resistance with low to zero impact making it easy on bones and joints. Enjoy a 1-hour class set to music. Work at your own pace, no swimming skills required. Aquafit Deep Water: The natural buoyancy of the water reduces the strain on your joints, bones and muscles by as much as 90 percent. Deep water running takes advantage of buoyancy, providing the same cardiovascular workout as if you were running on solid ground. Participants may choose to use a buoyancy belt which suspends you, while still giving your whole body a total workout. Stretch ‘n Move: This class is perfect for seniors, people recovering from an injury, people with restricted mobility or those simply looking for light exercise. This fun class focuses on improving flexibility and mobility. Lane Swim: A time set aside for swimming lengths of the pool.
