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.


Aqua Jogging 
Aqua Jogging is a unique exercise class that used aqua belt flotation devices to allow the swimmer to run in place in the water. This exercise is designed to help improve strength, endurance, and cardiovascular health through non-impact water resistance methods.

Mondays, Wednesdays
10:00am - 11:00am

Deep Water Aqua Exercise
Water is a safe, ideal environment for relieving arthritis pain and stiffness. This class is a great way to exercise without putting excess strain on your joints and muscles. The gentle activities in warm water, with guidance from a trained instructor, will help you gain strength and flexibility.

Mondays, Wednesdays
11:00am - 12:00pm

Silver Splash
Activate your urge for variety! Silver Splash offers fun, shallow-water movement to improve agility and flexibility while addressing cardiovascular, strength and endurance conditioning. No swimming ability is required, and a Silver Sneakers kickboard or other aquatic equipment is used to improve strength, balance, and coordination.

Mondays, Thursdays
12:00pm - 1:00pm

Aqua Aerobics
Water aerobics is often considered a low-intensity workout program appropriate only for pregnant women or the elderly. However, water aerobics actually offers multiple benefits for swimmers of any fitness level. Aqua aerobic exercise can help increase your energy, flexibility, stamina, and strength.

Tuesdays, Thursdays
11:00am - 12:00pm

Aqua Yoga
A certified instructor will guide the class through balance and gentle stretching poses in the water.
