Water Aerobics Classes

Hydro Fit:
Come and join a water aerobics class that utilizes the resistance of the water to get your heart rate up and your muscles moving. HydroFit, is an interval training class that will alternate between different equipment, such as noodles, water barbells, and aqua steps, to make each class fun and interesting. Each class will consist of a warm up, sets of repetitions followed by a recovery period, and, of course, a cool down and stretch. Come and shake off the stressors of your day while burning some calories. Non-swimmers welcome.
Days & Times:  Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays 9:00 a.m. – 9:50 a.m.
Fee:    $5 per visit or $50 per 18 visits – County residents
$7.50 per visit or $75 per 18 visits – Non-County residents

AquaFlex:
This program uses the buoyant qualities of water to enhance physical fitness through exercises. It is a medium-impact water class designed to provide cardiovascular conditioning, improved muscle tone, and improved balance. It is a total body workout without the stress of land-based exercise. Non-swimmers welcome!
Days & Times:   Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays 10:00 a.m. – 10:50 am.
Fee:    $5 per visit or $50 per 18 visits – County residents
$7.50 per visit or $75 per 18 visits – Non-County residents

Water Sculpt:
The intensity of the class is determined by how hard you decide to work. This shallow water workout includes calisthenics style movements with variations of upper and lower body resistive moves. Participants march, jog, and ski through the water to create resistance to improve cardiovascular fitness, muscular endurance and flexibility. Each instructor uses his/her creativity to keep the pace moving and the activities interesting. As the participant, you manipulate the water to create your preferred level of intensity.
Days & Times:  Mondays/Wednesdays   6:00 p.m. – 6:50 p.m.

Wet Sets:
This class is for senior citizens who are looking for a way to maintain flexibility and gain new acquaintances. One of the ideal ways to stay in shape, keep fit and maintain flexibility is through aquatic exercise. Exercising in the water is a great way to add resistance without the drawbacks of impact, and also to raise a heart rate for aerobic exercise, again without the resulting impacts that can be jarring and damaging to already fragile bones and ligaments. For this reason, water aerobics are ideal for those who may not be able to participate in more strenuous land based exercises with the resulting impacts, such as those who are in rehabilitation, or the elderly. This class is designed for participants who are age 60+ and belong to the Olivia Haydel Senior Center.  This class uses pool equipment for some basic exercises, but mostly relies on only the movement of the body. This class is also a great way to keep moving and socialize with others.
Days & Times:  Tuesdays & Thursdays 9:00 a.m. – 9:50 a.m.
Fee:    $2
For More Info:  Contact the Olivia Haydel Senior Center at 770-278-7230 or in person at 1240 Dogwood Drive

Aqua Zumba
Make a splash in the pool with Aqua Zumba. Take the high energy, calorie-burning dance party workout that you love from Zumba and heat up the pool with Aqua Zumba. Latin and international rhythms combine to move your body through the water while engaging your muscles in ways you aren’t used to experiencing – and that’s a GREAT thing! Your muscles have to fight the resistance of the water while your body is supported taking the pressure off your joints. The routines combine engaging, fun dance moves with the resistance toning benefits of the water. Combined with the party of a Zumba workout and this will be a class you will want to come back to again and again.
Days & Times: Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. and 6 – 7 p.m.  Saturdays 9:15 – 10:15 a.m.
Fee: $8 per class or $50 for a 10 class punch card
