Adult Swim Lessons (18 and Older) 

It’s never too late to learn how to swim! Whether you started learning to swim as a child, but never quite mastered it, or are simply afraid of the water, we’re here to help you learn to swim confidently, in a supportive environment. 


Aquatic Classes

Our water exercise classes are a fun way to use the resistance and buoyancy of water to condition your muscles and improve your cardiovascular fitness, strength, and flexibility. By employing strengthening exercises and stretching techniques, these water aerobics and fitness classes help to increase your body’s tone and range of motion. 

Water fitness is perfect if you’re looking for an enjoyable, low impact workout. If you’re looking to challenge yourself without putting stress on your joints or just like being in the water, you’ll enjoy our selection of water exercise classes. Our certified instructor enthusiastically leads small groups through water aerobics, core strength training movements and much more.
