HOURS OF OPERATION

DEEP WATER AEROBICS - Total Body Workout
Deep water workouts are more challenging than shallow water as the body’s center of balance is at the chest level. Each person must wear a belt to anchor the core and maintain good balance while working against the water’s buoyancy. This workout will require core strength to hold proper body alignment while working against the properties of water. Deep water workouts are impact free and do not require water shoes.

Moving through the water with a variety of walking patterns and progression will provide additional core, posture, balance, and mobility benefits. This class is great for all fitness levels including pre and post hip and knee replacements. You will benefit as it provides a total body workout while strengthening the muscles around the joint while providing minimal impact. Water shoes are required.
