Drop in Aquasise classes:
Water-based exercise classes give your body a total workout with little impact and joint stress. Workout intensity is moderate to vigorous and appropriate for all levels. Our programs use the water as the primary training tool with the option of using resistance equipment for building muscular strength and endurance. After participating in one of our classes, you will leave feeling relaxed and refreshed. If you are unsure of which class is best suited to your personal needs, contact the leader for the arena & fitness programs.
