YMCA Water Aerobic Classes are designed for all levels and abilities.  Instructors will provide needed modifications in order for you to adjust your workout and improve your health with the benefits of water.  Aquatic training allows you to get a balanced workout that is easy on your joints and addresses the muscles that gravity assists on land.  It is recommended to wear water shoes of tennis shoes while you workout.
