Whether you are looking to improve your cardiovascular endurance or rehabilitate a chronic source of pain, working out in the water is the answer. Making aquatic exercise part of your training program allows you to work longer in your training zone and use more fat as a fuel source.

Participants will enjoy the versatile workouts in the water - swimming knowledge is not required!
