  • With Kathy Massaroni
  • 10 sessions
  • Fee: $60; senior discount, $30

This class incorporates all genres of fun music to work out to for all ages. Class starts with a warm up/walk, then flows to simple, easy-to-follow dance/zumba type moves.   We work with stretch bands, light free weights; do some balance work, muscle building and even do a fun core workout in a chair. We will have cool down, relaxation, stretching and massage during the last 30 minutes of class.  We turn the lights down low, and enjoy simple yoga poses to increase flexibility and then relax through breathing techniques and self-massage of the face, head and neck.  Hydrate before class and bring an exercise mat or thick towel, a water bottle, stretch band (if you have one), and light free weights.

Water Aerobics (T)

  • 7-8 p.m.
  • High School Pool
  • With Vicky Bastian
  • Fee: $60; senior discount $30 (max 30 participants)

Take the plunge into a healthy lifestyle. These classes are designed with the beginner to intermediate exerciser in mind.  Our goal will be to increase your mobility, flexibility and stamina while firming your muscles and, most of all, boost your self-confidence!  All of this can be accomplished in a one-hour class in the pool in waist-high water.  You will be dancing, jumping, and stretching to fun music that will make it hard to keep your feet still.  All this while helping to stretch  and tone your body.

Lap Swim (T)

  • Coach Bill Liddle

Aqua Zumba (Sat)

  • 1-2 p.m.
  • High School Pool
  • With Penny Hatch
  • Fee: $70; senior discount $35 (max 30 participants)

Aqua Zumba is perfect for those looking to make a splash and adding a low impact, high-energy aquatic exercise to their fitness routine.  Aqua Zumba blends the Zumba philosophy with water resistance, for one pool party you shouldn’t miss.  There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba class so you can really let loose.  Water creates natural resistance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles.

  • Room 151
  • Fee: $35 (minimum 10 participants)
