Water exercise is an excellent way to a fit and healthy body! The added resistance of the water offers the opportunity to improve flexibility and muscle strength without joint stress. Our certified water exercise instructors will take you through exercise in the water, often using buoyant equipment for balance, stabilization and added resistance. Whatever an individual’s fitness goals or therapeutic needs, they can be met with the right mix of classes. All classes are taught by Aquatic Instructors certified through the Aquatic Exercise Association. Contact Ryan Caputo at 918-1476 for more information.
