Adult Swim Lessons:

It is never too late to learn to swim.  We offer adult swim lessons either in a one on one or a group setting.       

SILVERSNEAKERS SPLASH: A fun, shallow-water exercise class that uses a signature splash-board to increase movement and intensity options. Splash is suitable for all skill levels and is safe for non-swimmers. The pool provides many benefits when used for aerobic exercise and resistance training.

Aqua Kickboxing:

The benefits of integrating Kickboxing moves into pool workouts are that buoyancy reduces impact! Jumping moves that were not possible for some participants on land can be performed in water. The resistance of water also slows down movements. Combining Kickboxing moves with high energy drills provides a workout for someone looking for challenging fun.

 

Aqua Rock and Roll:

High energy, high fun class gives you a chance to stretch and tone your muscles in the easy resistance of the shallow end of the pool. 

 

Aqua Tabata:

Tabata is one of the most effective types of high interval training.  Mixing this format with the properties of water allows each class to blast away the calories. 

 

Aqua Therapy:

This program was designed by physical therapist Jon Kolb for those with physical limitations.  The whole class is low impact and conducted in the shallow end of the pool.  This class will work all the muscle groups and joints.   Modifications can be made depending on your limitations.  

 

Deep Water Aerobics:

Exercises in the deep end of the pool using flotation belts, dumbells and noodles.  This class is great for core strengthening, balance and over all fitness with no gravity at all.  As you move in new ways, you make your body work harder than it would on land, which increases your flexibility.  Individuals with back problems and arthritis, as well as those recovering from injury can work out in the water with a flotation belt for a reduced risk of injury and strain.

  

Lap Swimming:

Swimming is a great all-in-one fitness package, working most muscles of the body with each stroke.  When strokes are performed correctly the muscles lengthen and increase in flexibility.  Repetition of strokes improves muscle endurance, and because water creates more resistance against the body than air does the muscles are strengthened and toned.  Swimming also greatly enhances core strength, which is vital in overall health, stability and balance.

Water Yoga: 

Water Yoga is a gentle low impact aquatic activity, preforming Yoga poses in the water.  By using the rhythm of the breath an inner sense of relaxation can be achievedWater Yoga poses simultaneously help you develop:

  • Strength
  • Static Balance
  • Range of Motion

This is accomplished in coordination with diaphragmatic breathing and long exhalations.  Water Yoga takes the principals and movements of Yoga and adapts them to the water environment.  With the release from gravity provided by the aquatic environment the body is able to find the optimum stretch.  By using the rhythm of the breath an inner sense of relaxation can be achieved.  Water Yoga strengthens and tones the body while relieving tensions and renewing energy.  Water Yoga will help you find and tune into the beneficial cycle between the mind and body.
