Your membership includes the added benefits of aquatic fitness.

An aquatic fitness program is an exercise program performed in the water that is designed to strengthen the cardiorespiratory system, strengthen and tone the muscles, improve balance, coordination and flexibility, and enhance physical and emotional well-being. These programs are designed to serve healthy populations, as well as special populations such as the elderly, those experiencing medical and physical challenges, and post-rehabilitation clients who need to regain their strength to get back to normal activities.

Aquatic Fitness is an exercise that can accommodate all ages, fitness levels, and abilities through a variety of options. Aquatic Fitness is the perfect way to condition the body, stimulate the mind, wash away stress and rejuvenate the spirit. The pool is an excellent cross-training gym for everyone, an effective means for rehabilitation, and a refreshing change to sweating on land. Research has shown that there are various health benefits to regular water exercise. Here are some critical points about Aquatic Fitness:

Research supports that physically fit people are eight times less likely to die of cardiovascular disease than unfit persons. Regular exercise is as effective as medication in reducing blood pressure. Regular exercise promotes body fat loss while preserving muscle mass. Regular exercise helps to reduce systemic arterial blood pressure. Regular exercise helps raise the percentage of beneficial HDL cholesterol (good) and lowers LDL cholesterol (bad) and the TC/HDL-C ration (total cholesterol divided by HSL cholesterol) to a low-risk profile. Regular exercise delays bone loss and promotes formation in women at most risk for osteoporosis. Regular exercise can increase sleep length and depth. 

Aquatic fitness programs require no specialized equipment; however, the addition of all types of equipment can amplify the properties of water and provide unlimited training possibilities.
