All ages and fitness levels can benefit from aquatic exercise. While the water will protect and lessen impact on the joints, the water also surrounds the body with constant resistance to build strength, endurance, and increase flexibility. Jump in and join us! The pool is for everyone!
The JCC offers aquatic fitness classes — both deep and shallow water workouts — for a variety of fitness levels and to those with specialized conditions. Classes are free to all members. Specialty classes may be offered throughout the year for an additional fee. In addition, personal training sessions and rehabilitation opportunities are available by appointment.
