Aqua Aerobics

One of the greatest benefits from exercising in water is increased flexibility. You can perform exercises in water that may be difficult on land. The lessening effect from gravity helps joints move through a wider range of motion and helps achieve long-term flexibility. The water reduces the "weight" of a person by about 90%. The buoyancy of water provides a means of reducing stress on weight-bearing joints, muscles, and bones.

Water exercise encompasses all components of fitness: flexibility, muscular strength, endurance, and cardiovascular fitness. When done regularly, water exercise can help reduce body fat and improve respiratory and cardiovascular performance. We have experience instructors, who offer different types of workouts. Try out all of our classes.
