Aqua Aerobics (also called Silver Sneakers Splash) is similar to a Land Aerobics class, but adapted for the unique properties of the water. The water's resistance provides a low-impact, high-intensity workout without the need for swimming skills. Aqua aerobics is held in both shallow and deep parts of the pool. This program is available for ages 16 & up, and registration is required.
