Water Exercise

Class Focus

• Light Level •• Moderate Level ••• High Level

Working out in the water is very effective for weight loss, cardio and strength training.
Find out for yourself. Get wet!
Class offerings include everything from gentle to intense!

In addition to a full slate of land-based exercise classes, the Saginaw Family YMCA offers members the chance to take their workouts to one or both pools.

  • Consistent, gentle resistance
  • Less impact on muscles and joints
  • No worries about falling
  • Water supports the body in every position
  • Allows for a wider range of motion

WATER WALKING – click for  SHALLOW POOL SCHEDULE FOR TIMES:
Simply changing your walking routine from land to water keeps it interesting, while allowing you to work different muscles as part of the exercise.  The water provides resistance, making your muscles work harder. At the same time, it provides buoyancy, helping reduce strain to your joints.  Try walking backward and sideways to tone other muscles.  This warmer, shallow pool is 2’6″ to 3’6″ deep.
