Drop-In Aquatic Fitness Classes AQUATIC FITNESS CLASSES

Want a great aerobic and strength training workout with little impact on your joints? Jump in the pool and dive into Aqua Fitness Classes! Use the natural resistance of the water to get your heart healthy and your body toned. Break free from your land loving routine with aerobics and resistance combotraining that uses your natural body buoyancy to give you a great workout.

H2O Aerobics

Join us for a total body workout that will physically challenge you! You will get the same fitness benefits as land aerobics, including excellent cardiovascular conditioning, muscle toning, flexibility and fat burning. The water provides great resistance and a low-impact workout. This class is for everyone! Join us for a change of pace, for cross-training, or for general fitness.

Low Impact/Low Intensity & Pre/Post Natal Class

Enjoy a fun, relaxing, low impact workout in the water! This class includes cardiovascular conditioning, flexibility, strengthening, and spine stabilization. This class also includes exercises designed for participants with arthritis. In addition to the above, you will work on range of motion to assist in reducing joint pain. Pre/Post natal participants need a doctor’s release prior to participating in this class. Mon-Fri 915-1015a

Hydro Pump/Deep Water Combo

This is our highest intensity class! Gain strength and endurance like you would on land, but have the extra resistance from working against the river current.

This comprehensive workout will be in two parts. The first half hour you will workout in the lazy river. Instructors use water weights, noodles, and more to provide a challenging and exciting workout. The second half of class you move to the deep end of the pool and continue working cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, strength, muscle tone, and increase fat burning. Flotation devices (hand buoys, belts, and noodles) provide stability and flotation, however, you should feel comfortable in the deep water.

Youth Sports RECREATIONAL SPORTS PHILOSOPHY

RECREATIONAL SPORTS AGE CLASSIFICATIONS

Erie Parks & Recreation strives to provide a positive, safe, and fun environment to allow children of all skill levels the opportunity to play. We hope to create an environment that balances teamwork, commitment, hard work, sportsmanship and competition. We provide 2-3 contacts per week with enthusiastic parent volunteer coaches, and hope that at the conclusion of the season your child learned about the game, improved skills, and wants to play again.

For a majority of our leagues, we classify our league offerings by age. Unless otherwise noted in each program/league’s description, the age calculation date for all youth sports programs/leagues will be calculated by the first league contact day. • The “U” before the age number stands for “under” (e.g., U9 stands for ages under 9). • The “U” after the age number stands for “and under” (e.g., 9U stands for ages 9 and under).
