What do I need for an aquatic class?

  • A bathing suit of course.  And a towel from home for the pool.  We ask that you don't use Aquafit towels poolside.
  • Water shoes - to prevent slips and falls and provide better cushioning for legs during class
  • A sport Bra - a Lycra sports bra is recommended for some to wear under your suit for a little extra support.
  • Water - drink a lot of it!  Before and after class.  Being in the water actually dehydrates you.  It is recommended to have 2-3 glasses 2 hours before and at least 1 glass right before, during and after class.  A healthy snack for after class - Swimming will make you very hungry - we suggest bringing along a healthy snack of some kind to eat after exercising.  This will help to keep you from going home and bingeing.

 

LAND CLASSES AT AQUAFIT

YOGA – A class anybody can attend.  Here Yoga is taken to the next level.  This is a profound way to improve physical fitness, flexibility, balance, posture, breathe awareness, relief of stress, and increase your immunity.

ZUMBA – Zumba fuses Latin and other International dance rhythms and tantalizing moves to create a dynamic fast paced workout system designed to be fun and easy to do.

ZUMBA GOLD – This class takes all of the excitement from the original Zumba class and introduces it to the active older adult, and the beginner participants.  The moves are modified and instruction is given before each song.

PILATES – This is an exercise method that relies on strengthening core postural muscles and developing body alignment.  The aim of this class is not to develop bulging muscles or cardiovascular fitness but to help your whole body operate in an effective and efficient manner.

ABS – 15 minutes of abdominal exercises, geared towards strengthening the abdominal muscles.  In this class you use the stability ball, medicine ball, and some exercises on the mats.

CARDIO/STEP – This class is a basic step class that even the first time “stepper” can attend.  It is primarily a Step class but there are some aerobic floor intervals thrown in.  The class will end with some abdominal work.

KICKBOXING – Want to tone those legs and arms?  Come to this class.  There are about four basic punches and a few kicks but when put all together the routines are endless.  The class is about 45 minutes of aerobic exercise and then finishes with some abdominal exercises.

INTERVAL – This class brings your heart rate up for a quick period, back down with a brief “working” rest, and then back up again.  To get the heart rate up you utilize some plyometric moves, strengthening exercises, and aerobics.  There are always modifications offered for those with some restrictions.

INTERVAL TRAINING – Intervals of strength/weight training alternating with cardio/aerobic conditioning sets.  Use of hand held weights between intervals of cardio, basic step, and dance movements.  Class also includes muscle specific and abdominal work, and stretching.
