The FITMAT platform adds a totally unique core body workout by creating controlled instability.   Class times are TBD.   


Aqua Aerobics 

Aqua Aerobics is a low impact workout that is great for participants of all ages. This class uses the resistance of the water to increase muscle tone, flexibility, range of motion and strength.  The buoyancy of water decreases stress on your joints. This class is held in the Recreation Pool which is from 0 - 4 feet of water.  A minimum of 10 participants is required to have a class.
