Aquatic Fitness Classes

Water is a wonderful, supportive environment to exercise in. Athletes have been using water exercise for years to rehab injuries or to cross-train for their sport. The great thing about water exercise is the ability to use the properties of water to vary the intensity of a workout thereby making it a wonderful form of exercise for all ages and abilities.

To let you experience this for yourself. we offer water exercise classes taught in our Forese Family Scooter Pool. If you have any questions about Water Exercise Classes or you need help getting started, please contact Kristin Schnitzler, Group Wellness Director at 203-920-1636.
