This shallow water workout includes calisthenics style movements with variations of upper and lower body resistance moves. You will march, jog, kick, and jump your way through the water to improve and maintain cardiovascular fitness, muscular endurance and flexibility. Each instructor uses his/her creativity to keep the pace moving and the activities interesting. As the participant, you determine your own intensity by deciding how hard to manipulate the water.

Deep Water Running


Deep Water Running is a non-impact form of running done in the water while wearing a flotation belt. This non impact high energy aerobic workout simulates land running and provides cross-training for runners (Moving your arms and legs as though you're running on land; the water adds another layer of challenge to the workout).
