Water fitness provides all the benefits of a great cardiovascular and strength-conditioning workout while protecting your joints from excess strain. These classes are designed to help you improve joint and muscle flexibility, balance, coordination and strength. Fitness classes are included in YMCA membership.
WATERinMOTION® offers the benefit of a high energy calorie burning workout without the pull that gravity plays on the body. Experience the cross-training effects that water provides reducing the impact on your joints, specifically the knees and back. WATERinMOTION® Platinum is low-impact variation of the original that takes place in shallow water, offering active aging adults and deconditioned participants a fun workout improving cardiovascular endurance, agility, balance, strength and flexibility.
Integrating the Zumba® format and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, Aqua Zumba® blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that's cardio-conditioning, body toning and fun! Get dancing, in the water!
