Immerse

This class is the ultimate in water exercise.  Immerse is high to very-high intensity water training appropriate for those seeking serious advances in fitness without the pounding and stress to joints and muscles common in land-based exercise.  It is also perfect for athletes seeking a cross-training modality without the risk of injury.  Participants use both water and body weight for increased strength and superior toning.  Participants should have very minimal swimming skills and be willing to go into deep water without support, although floatation support will be available.  Get wet and “immerse” yourself in fitness!

Class will resume in the fall.
