A CLASS FOR
Water exercise classes are beneficial to everyone regardless of age or ability and are especially beneficial to those suffering from arthritis, hip and leg injuries, or who find it difficult to exercise on dry land. The biggest benefit to exercising in the pool is the amount of body weight the water takes off joints, making exercising with arthritic bones or even minor injuries much more comfortable for the participant. Individuals with any health condition should consult a doctor before participating.
Our classes are available to YMCA Members only (age 13 & Older).
