Aquatics Classes & Programs

Aqua Fitness – The Wave of the Future

Improve your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, range of motion and endurance. The buoyancy and resistant properties of water combine to make water fitness a fantastic workout. In the water your body is 80% lighter than on land. This buoyancy makes it easier to move and is forgiving on the knees and hip joints. Water is 12 times more resistant than air, making exercise 12 times harder in the water than on land. Research shows that 45 minutes of jogging in water is equal to 2 hours at the same speed on land. Aqua fitness is great for everyone! Pregnant women, seniors, people rehabbing injuries and even hard-core exercisers looking for a change of pace. Here at the Mt. Prospect Park District, we offer four different levels of classes, including a new prenatal class.
