Water Exercise

Included in your Y membership!
Pool workouts are a challenging, invigorating and safe way to stay in good cardio and muscular condition. The natural resistance of the water improves flexibility, cardiovascular endurance, and muscle strength in an aquatic environment that is non-impact and beneficial for joints. Water Exercise is a great option for cross training and for people with back, knee, or hip pain that is aggravated by traditional gym classes.
