Water Exercise Training Classes
Join us in the pool for a fun and challenging workout with our Water Exercise Training course! Water Exercise Training, or W.E.T., is a shallow and deep water fitness class specifically designed for those looking to build strength, power and cardiovascular endurance without the impact of land exercise.
The class utilizes resistance training, explosive exercises, as well as treading in deep water to improve resistance and cardio. Moderate swimming skills are encouraged, as the class utilizes the deeper portions of the pool during this moderate-intensity workout. With the help of the natural resistance of water, this class allows you to burn maximum calories and build muscle, all in a low-impact, water environment.
This group exercise class incorporates various equipment into the workout including weights, foam resistance apparatuses, kickboards, and flippers. A typical class consists of a resistance portion, a power portion, a cardiovascular portion, and, on occasion, an abdominal workout, giving you’re a near total-body workout by the end of the class!
Water Exercise Training is open to adults of all ages and abilities and is currently available at the Northern Dauphin County YMCA branch. The instructor will offer a comfortable atmosphere for participants to feel engaged and welcomed to get the most out of their workout.
Water Exercise Training classes are available at various times throughout the week. For more information on current class schedules, please visit the Northern Dauphin County YMCA schedules page on the website.
