Water Exercise

Jump right into this class and build cardiovascular fitness and strength. Just like swimming, our water exercise classes are easy on your joints, yet challenging enough to help you reach new levels of fitness. Because of their low-impact format, water aerobics classes are suitable for every age and fitness level.

Age: 16 & up
Tuesdays & Thursdays: 5:30 - 6:30pm
Location: Hopkins Pool

$32rs/$42nr ($20rs/$25nr with flex pass)

Session 1: Jun 6 - Jul 11 (no class 7/4)
Session 2: Jul 18 - Aug 15

Benefits.... There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba class. Water also creates natural resistance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles.
