Aquatics Fitness

Water Aerobics
Low-impact water workouts combine cardiovascular exercises with strength training, with little risk of injury. Because of water's buoyancy and the body support it provides, joint, muscle, and bone injuries are almost eliminated. People also benefit from the 90-percent apparent weight loss that occurs when they are submerged in shoulder-deep water. This feeling of weight loss gives exercisers the sense they can accomplish more.

All classes are open to students, faculty and staff members, and members of the community.

Classes are from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. You may register for the classes for six weeks at a time, for a fee of $69 per six-week session.

You may register and pay for the classes at the Student Recreation and Fitness Center.

For session information, call Ashley Chism at 678-3461.

Classes fill quickly, so don’t delay!
