Aquacize

A CLASS FOR EVERY LIFESTYLE

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).

Various types of equipment, such as noodles and weights, are utilized throughout the class. Participants leave “ENER-CHIZED”.

Lap Swim

During lap swim the pool is open to YMCA members who are capable of swimming continuously from one end of the pool to the other. Lap lanes can be split by 2 swimmers. If more than 3 swimmers are in any one lane those swimmers must circle-swim. The lifeguard on duty has full authority to create safe lap swimming lanes by organizing swimmers according to speed and ability. Swimmers who wish to do stationary exercise may use the slow lane if space is available.

Private Swimming Lessons

Looking for a more intense and individualized swimming lesson?

Private Lessons – Work one-on-one with one of our swimming instructors and schedule sessions around a more flexible schedule (30 minutes).

Semi Private Lessons – Its more fun to learn with a friend. Semi private lessons can be arranged for two swimmers of the same swimming ability.

Both private & semi private lessons can be arranged for either 30 minutes or 1 hour, however, the 1 hour lessons are only recommended for the more advanced swimmers looking to build endurance and focus on technique.
