Aqua Fusion
Let’s supercharge your workout routine! Aqua Fusion will get you in the pool to combine light to moderate cardio with strength and conditioning exercises.  The cardio will keep that heart moving and the strength will build those bones and muscles.  Come join Angie in the pool and take the heat out of your day!

Aqua Blast
Don’t let your workouts become routine – make a splash in Aqua Blast with Lynn and experience the thrill of aquatic fitness like never before! Come use the resistance of the water to improve your cardiovascular fitness, muscular endurance, strength, and flexibility along with incorporating different equipment such as aqua bells, noodles, resistance bands and kick boards. All equipment is provided but feel free to bring your own!

Aqua Yoga
Aqua Yoga combines the science of mindful movement with water resistance. During each practice we’ll incorporate pool equipment, the floor, and the wall to assist in building strength, and increasing balance and range of motion (flexibility) moving through traditional yoga poses in a new and fun way!
