Aquatic Exercise

All ages and skill levels can benefit from aquatic exercise. Working out in the water is a great way to get and stay in shape while protecting joints. Build your strength, endurance, and flexibility through resistance exercises using our water weights, hydro-tone equipment, and other aquatic equipment.

The JCC offers its swimmers access to both deep and shallow water workout opportunities, as well, as a range of aqua fitness classes including Aqua Aerobics, Aqua Arthritis, and Silver Splash. All of our aquatics class are taught by certifed instructors and are free for members.
