Aqua fitness class to be offered June 12-Aug. 2
This article features an event that occurred in the past.
Western Carolina University’s Office of Continuing Education will offer an aqua fitness class beginning Tuesday, June 12, and continuing through Thursday, Aug. 2, in the pool of Reid Gymnasium.
Classes will be held from 12:10 to 12:55 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Participants will engage in a variety of aqua exercises designed to increase cardiovascular endurance. Equipment such as water buoys will be utilized at times.
Exercise experts tout the benefits of aqua fitness activities because they allow individuals of all ages to exercise all parts of the body, but because the water causes a body to be buoyant, there is less strain on the muscles and joints. Participants also remain more comfortable because of the cooling effect of the water.
Registration for the class is ongoing. Participants who do not preregister or who register at the first class meeting must present a paid receipt to the lifeguard to be admitted after the first class.
