WATER FITNESS

Water fitness classes can benefit individuals who are just starting to exercise, as well as those who would like a more intense workout (each person exercises at his/her own pace). Water exercises put less stress on joints than land exercises because the effects of gravity are minimized.  Working against water resistance improves muscle strength and tone and cardio endurance.  Swimming skills are not needed for participation.
