It doesn’t matter if you’re a child, a senior or somewhere in between: Elite has plenty of water exercise classes for all ages! Given the many benefits of exercising in water, aquatics exercise classes are a great addition to your typical workout routine. Here’s a breakdown of our current aquatic exercise schedule, and what it can offer you.
Arthritis Foundation Aquatics
Focus on keeping your joints flexible, your muscles strong & help reduce the pain associated with arthritis. This class is also a great routine for anyone who wants to get that good whole-body stretch to help them feel refreshed for the rest of the day!
This class blends the Zumba philosophy with water resistance, for one pool party you shouldn’t miss! There is less impact on your joints, so you can really let loose. Water creates natural resistance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles. Aqua Zumba is perfect for those looking to make a splash by adding a low-impact, high-energy aquatic exercise to their fitness routine.
Here, you’ll do eight rounds of high-intensity exercises performed in specific “20 seconds on, 10 seconds off” intervals. The water adds resistance to the workout while making Tabata a little safer for people of all ages and fitness levels. As it’s easy on the joints, flexibility may also be increased as water allows for more range of motion. The buoyancy of the water also helps reduce the impact that is felt during land-based exercise. Aqua Tabata is an extremely effective way to boost metabolism and weight-loss benefits.
This joint-friendly, chest-deep water aerobics workout includes calisthenics-style exercises with upper and lower body variations. March, jog, and ski against water resistance to improve cardiovascular fitness, muscle endurance, and flexibility. Floating dumbbells and other buoyancy tools are used to add both resistance and stability in the water.
