Aquatic Group Exercise

Why choose Water Exercise?

The water’s unique properties allow the pool to provide an environment for people of all abilities.  Buoyancy creates a reduced impact exercise alternative that is easy on the joints, while the water’s resistance challenges the muscles.  Water lends itself to a well-balanced workout that improves all major components of physical fitness -- aerobic training, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility and body composition.

Water aerobics is often considered a low-intensity workout program appropriate only for pregnant women or the elderly. However, water aerobics actually offers multiple benefits for any fitness level. Water aerobics classes come in a variety of formats.

Low Impact

Exercising in water makes you feel about 90 percent lighter, reports the American Council on Exercise. When you jump or run in the water, your body does not experience the same impact that these moves cause on land. This makes water aerobics an ideal activity for those with arthritis, back problems, foot or leg injuries, and knee conditions. Pregnant women and the obese also benefit from the reduced impact.

Calorie Burn

Expect to burn between 400 and 500 calories per hour in a water aerobics class. The actual amount you burn will depend on your size, the intensity of your movements, as well as water temperature and depth. In general, faster movements incorporating the upper and lower body in deep water elicit the greatest calorie burn.

Strength

When exercising in water, you work against 12 times the resistance of air. Simply kicking and cupping the water helps contribute to muscle development, which translates into a higher metabolism and healthier body.

Welcome to JCC MetroWest Parent & Child and Adapted Aquatics

For each level of Parent and Child Aquatics, our instructors follow a plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills that are developmentally appropriate for infants and young children.

Routines and the familiar are extremely important to your young swimmer. Each class uses toys, songs, fun and games to keep the children engaged and enjoying the water experience, all the while teaching them basic aquatic skills.
