BYO towel, water bottle, and aquatics exercise equipment
Bring your own equipment and enjoy the warm water as you take conduct self-led aquatic exercises. A 45-minute reservation is a great way to continue your favorite cardiovascular exercises at your own pace. The resistance of the water helps strengthens and tones muscles and affects more of the body when exercising if the water is chest-deep. While our instructors won’t be instructing, they are available to answer questions you may have about how to do an exercise or can provide helpful tips and feedback. Aquatic workouts help to increase energy, endurance, and healthy living while reducing stress, tension, and anxiety.
*NEW: Starting on September 14 for the week of September 21 and week thereafter, registration will open up exactly 1 week in advance for EACH DAY for EACH TIME. Meaning if you want to swim 8:00 AM Monday 9/28, registration will open 8:00 AM Monday 9/21 and for Tuesday at 4:00 PM on the 29th, registration opens Tuesday the 22nd at 4:00 PM. You will no longer be able to make reservations for the week. We hope this gives more people the chance to get their favorite spots!
