WATER FITNESS

What would the Y be without water? Water exercise, adult swim lessons (it’s NEVER too late) and adapted exercise for those with disabilities or in rehabilitation are some of the water-based activities you’ll find at the Y, where we believe if you can do it on land, you can do some version of it in the water!

Water fitness provides all the benefits of a great cardiovascular and strength-conditioning workout while protecting your joints from excess strain. These classes are designed to help you improve joint and muscle flexibility, balance, coordination and strength.
