At the YWCA, we believe if you can do it on land, you can do it in the water! Take to the water for fun and fitness. The YWCA has a water fitness class that everyone will enjoy. Non-swimmers welcome with many classes occurring in shallow water.
Our excellent classes are taught by staff that take the time to learn your workout needs. Our friendly instructors keep the classes fun and exciting with new weekly exercises. With comfortable class sizes, you are sure to have a great workout in a near weightless and zero impact environment.
