Senior Aquacize Classes
Aquatics classes are a great way for seniors to stay fit and avoid injury. The Harrisburg Area YMCA seeks to provide classes for all fitness levels and skill. Senior Aquacise class at the Y has a design to suit this very purpose!
Senior Aquacize is an aquatic fitness class for the older adult or beginner exerciser. The class includes stretching, muscle toning, and aerobic exercises performed in shallow water. Our indoor pools provide cool temperatures to help relax your muscles and give a great workout.
We include various water aerobic exercises to help you burn calories. Participants will perform these exercises in waist-deep water with little to no stress on the back and hips.
Participants will use various fitness equipment and water weights in order to help with resistance and muscle strength. The natural resistance of the water helps create fluid exercises for the body. The buoyancy of the water promotes no impact on your joints. By improving muscles and increasing bone mass, participants can benefit from greater balance control, lower chance of injury, and overall improved health.
Our certified instructors will promote a safe and comfortable environment for all and changes are available upon request. Please visit your local YMCA schedules page on the website to find out when this class is available at a branch near you!
