Series of aqua fitness classes to begin Monday

Aqua fitness classes will be offered beginning Monday, Aug. 24, and continuing through Thursday, Dec. 3, by Western Carolina University’s Office of Continuing and Professional Education.

Classes will meet from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday each week in the Reid Gymnasium pool. Fitness experts recommend aquatic exercises for individuals of all ages because it works all parts of the body with less strain on muscles and joints.

The cost is $65, and registration is ongoing. Participants who do not register before the first class will have to show a paid receipt to the lifeguard to participate.
