group exercise classes Aqua Zumba®

Water Walking

If you enjoy ZUMBA®, you will be sure to enjoy Zumba in the water. Zumba utilizes the principles of fitness interval training/resistance training to maximize caloric output, fat burning, and total body toning. It provides a mixture of body sculpting movements with easy to follow dance steps. You do not need to be a swimmer to take this class.

Like any water aerobic exercise, water walking is easy on the joints. The water’s buoyancy supports the body’s weight, which reduces stress on the joints and minimizes pain. Water provides 12 times the resistance of air, so as you walk, you’re really strengthening and building muscle.

Cornhole Have you ever played this game? It’s a lot like horseshoes just with bean bags and a board. Come learn how to play, or just stop by to show off your skills. During the cold winter months, we have indoor boards we set up in the Teen Center.

Thirsty Thursday Every first Thursday of the month, we create some of our favorite drinks while trying new ones too. Drinks include hot cocoa, milkshakes, Sparkle Punch, Arnold Palmer, and a watermelon slushy just to name a few.

Drop-In Basketball Every Friday after school, the Community Center courts are the place to be! The gym is reserved just for you and your friends. Grab your buddies and a basketball, and meet us on the court!

We may watch anything from Disney classics, to motivational movies, to some of the newest releases. All films are rated G - PG-13.

Volunteer Club Do you love your community and want to give back? Maybe you need community service hours for school. Whatever the reason is, we invite you to join us the fourth Tuesday of each month for a new and exciting volunteer opportunity. We have several places in Manassas Park and Prince William County to help.
