AQUATICS

GENTLE AQUA FIT — This class is recommended for beginners who are new to water workouts (or exercise in general), older active adults, or those who simply want a more gentle water workout. In addition to the gentle cardio and muscle conditioning work, this class emphasizes increasing one’s mobility, range of motion and balance, all to benefit daily activity function and fall prevention.

AQUAFIT — This shallow water class is a beginner/intermediate level class, yet provides an effective workout. Using the water’s resistance and any equipment the instructor plans for, the moves work on cardio and muscle conditioning. Some of the moves may be choreographed for the fun of it!

DEEP WATER* — This class is for those with the ability to suspend themselves in deep water (only 5 feet) for an extended period of time. This continuous suspension (wearing an aqua belt or noodle) adds a different dimension to the workout, and no stress on one’s joints! It still uses the water’s resistance and any equipment the instructor plans for to work on cardio and muscle conditioning. (The aqua belt is not made as a life-saving device.) *This class is not currently being offered.

SPLASHBURNER — This class is mostly a shallow water class, but the deep water may also be used (your choice). The workout is vigorous to high intensity. Using the water’s resistance and any equipment the instructor plans for, the moves work on cardio and muscle conditioning. Some of the moves may be choreographed for the fun of it!

AQUA ZUMBA®* — Every Wednesday and Friday evening, Aqua Zumba® routines are now interspersed with the existing SplashBurner format (see SplashBurner class description). Aqua Zumba® is where moves/rhythms from regular land Zumba® classes are adapted/modified for Zumba® dance-fitness in the water. The description below explains regular LAND Zumba®, to help you understand what is being brought to the water. *This class is not currently being offered.

Research has proven that Tai Chi helps with fall prevention by increasing balance and mental focus. Tai chi can be done anywhere, including a chair if necessary, and requires no special equipment (loose clothing and low sold shoes are suggested.) The word Chu’an indicates the Tai Chi is for health purposes; it is not a martial arts class.

YANG TAI CHIis the most commonly practiced tai chi style. Flowing, graceful movements increase strength and flexibility while calming the mind.
