Residents looking for a way to stay cool and in shape have to look no farther than the Aquatic Complex and Cypress Pool. Aquacise fitness classes are available for a low-impact yet effective water-based workout that can burn up to 450 calories an hour. For only $3 per class or $30 for a package of 12 classes, participants are treated to resistance-based exercises using the pull of the water. Certified instructors lead all classes.
Participants are encouraged to wear water-safe shoes, available at most local retail stores. Classes focus on core strengthening, cardio and stretches to improve flexibility.
Sessions are offered Tuesday and Thursday 9:30 to 10:30 a.m at the Aquatic Complex, located at 2575 Sportsplex Dr. Saturday classes from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. will be at Cypress Pool, located at 1300 Coral Springs Drive.
A Stretch class is also available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:30 a.m at the Aquatic Complex, located at 2575 Sportsplex Dr. The class is non-aerobic and a great way to stay physically fit in a weightless environment.
