AquaFit

AquaFit classes are a fantastic way to get fit and stay fit.  High intensity and low impact, AquaFit provides a great total body workout set to high-energy playlists.

The unique physical properties of water provide an ideal environment for exercise. Natural buoyancy of the water reduces weight-bearing stress, allowing a greater ease of movement with less strain on bones, joints and muscles. The density of the water helps the toning effects and assists in the strengthening of muscles with greater balance and efficiency.

AquaFit will differ according to what the instructor has planned. Options include Shallow Water Aquacise, Deep Water Aquacise and Aqua Jogging. Aqua Fit is one of only a few fitness programs that can be beneficial to nearly anyone, regardless of height, weight and build and size.

Check the schedule for times and dates, or call the pool at (406) 243-2763 for details.
