Our water fitness classes run the gamut of fitness: some focus on strengthening joints and muscles, while others offer a harder workout to tone your body and help you lose weight. Everyone enjoys the friendships they make through classes, and the camaraderie keeps them coming back for more.
Water fitness is safe and easy to learn. Classes include cardiovascular, strength and stretching exercises. Participants are encouraged to work at their own comfort level. The YWCA provides barbells, kick boards, noodles, and resistance cuffs for use in classes. Everyone is welcome to try any water fitness class one time at no charge.
Participants must bring their own towel, bathing suits and a change of dry clothes. We would also encourage everyone to wear water shoes, flip flops or sandals to prevent slipping in the locker rooms or on the pool deck.
For Beginners we recommend these classes: Swing N Sway and Gentle Water Yoga with Mary; and Water Walking with Linda
