Aquafit-Photo-(2).JPGWant to get active? Join Aquafit!

Aquafit is a group exercise class in the water for mature youth, adults, and seniors. Expect a variety of cardio, strength, and flexibility exercises that you can modify according to your own fitness level and ability.

There are many options given by the instructor for each movement to make it easy, medium, or harder.

The great thing about it is that in addition to the standard benefits of any exercise, the water supports your body and reduces the risk of muscle or joint injury.
