Aqua fitness class schedule

Saint Joseph’s College announces its spring and summer schedule for aqua fitness classes, which can be used for improving flexibility, range of motion, muscle tone, and cardiovascular endurance by using the buoyancy and resistance of the water. The classes are considered a low-impact workout with no harmful effects on joints or muscles and allow participants to stay cool while exercising. 

Participants will be guided by a trained instructor and led through activities using foam aqua noodles and hand weights to work different muscle groups. Classes are ideal for all fitness levels, non-swimmers included. The sauna is also available for use after the aqua workout is complete.

Aqua fitness classes will run from May 14 through July 8 from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday; from Noon to 12:45 p.m., on Monday and Thursday; and in the evening from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. All classes are held at the Harold Alfond Center pool on the Standish campus. Participants are free to choose individual sessions and times that adapt to their schedule.

Classes are $7 for a drop-in or $60 for a 12-punch pass ($50 for Standish residents). The class is free for students and alumni of the college. No pre-registration required.
