These classes are offered multiple times throughout the day. While there are no beginner, intermediate, advanced classes, each class can be modified to fit all members’ fitness levels. Instructors are able to give different modifications to make an exercise harder for the more progressed member or easier for someone with arthritis or injuries (for example).
This class is offered on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10:05 and 11:10, and is intended for those with Arthritis or other physical conditions that call for low-intensity pool exercise. Arthritis Foundation Certified Instructors take the class through range-of-motion exercises that keep the joints fluid and moving. The water is kept between 84 and 88 degrees to meet Arthritis Foundation requirements.
This class is offered on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 2:00pm and is ideal for those members who are ready to transition from the Arthritis class but are not quite ready for water aerobics. Instructors will take participants through a variety of water walking techniques (upper and lower body exercises) and keep you moving for 45-60 minutes at a pace that will get your heart rate up yet still be appropriate for the class level.
Lap Swim/Solo Aquatics
Lap swim and solo aquatics is offered multiple times throughout the day, which allow members to use the pool for lap swimming, water walking, water jogging, stretching… just keep moving! Lane ropes are pulled during this time to divide the pool into 4 lanes allotting the 2 middle lanes specifically for lap swimmers. The 2 outer lanes are for those water walking/jogging or using the bars for stretching. Please note that depending on the number of swimmers, 2-3 people may have to share a lane.
Cycling Revolution (Indoor Cycling Class)
This FUN class is offered Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday at 6:00pm, and is for anyone looking for a challenge, although we welcome all fitness levels! Instructors take you through a challenging 55-60 minute ride climbing up hills, jumping, hovering, or sprinting to get to the finish line. This multi-level approach is further intensified by resistance—for first timers, the resistance is kept at a minimal level while those who are more seasoned will push to maximum levels. Bike shorts or padded seat covers are encouraged since it will take a few classes to acclimate to the bike seats.
This condensed bootcamp-style class is offered Monday and Thursday at 6:00pm and incorporates cardio, strength training, abs, and so much more, into one uplifting and supportive 60-minute class.
Offered on Wednesdays at 12:30pm., this 30-minute class includes a variety of abdominal exercises that alternate from week to week. Set-up as a circuit rotation, each participant will rotate through lower, upper, and oblique abdominal exercises that will be performed for 1 minute. After a minute, you will then move to the next exercise to challenge a different part of your core. Modifications can be made depending on one’s fitness level. Participants in this class must be comfortable getting up and down from the floor and moving from one exercise to the next.
In this 50 minute class, your instructor will take you through strengthening exercises in a chair as well as standing balancing exercises, at times using equipment such as barbells, golf clubs, and more.
