An aqua fitness class at Western Carolina University will be held from 12:10 to 12:55 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting June 12 and running through Aug. 2 in the pool of Reid Gymnasium.
Participants will engage in a variety of aqua exercises designed to increase cardiovascular endurance. Equipment such as water buoys will be utilized at times.
Exercise experts tout the benefits of aqua fitness activities because they allow individuals of all ages to exercise all parts of the body, but because the water causes a body to be buoyant, there is less strain on the muscles and joints. Participants also remain more comfortable because of the cooling effect of the water.
