Location

AQUA FITNESS:
In the pool group exercise class which provides cardiovascular conditioning.  Exercising in the water provides a supportive environment for every body.  The buoyancy of the water reduces your weight on impact, resulting in much less strain on your joints and muscles.  This makes Aqua fitness a good choice for those new to exercise, those who can't move easily and for those who are looking for a gentle way to get fit and lose weight.  Aqua fitness also helps strengthen the body because the water offers resistance.  Water has much more resistance than air.  The resistance exerted by water applies in both directions as you push and pull against it.  This means that each movement you make works two opposing muscle groups, not just one, as is the case when you work against gravity.  Same effort but double the benefit.
As always, if you have any health concerns please check with your doctor before taking this or any new form of exercise class. 
Here's what your can expect in an Aqua fitness class with Kathy:
* a short stretching warm-up to get your body used to the water and your muscles ready for exercise.
* cardiovascular exercises to get your heart pumping, such as jogging, leg kicks, body twists, arm exercises and other dance-like movements.
*balancing exercises
*exercises with water weights and skim boards.
*coordination exercises
*stretches
*a cool-down of stretches at the end to avoid injury.
