Aquatics Classes

The resistance of water strengthens muscles as you push and pull your both through the water. Led by trained YMCA instructors, these classes offer a host of benefits for all fitness levels, and you'll appreciate the ability to control the intensity by modifying surface area, speed, and force of movements.
