What is Aquacise?

  • All the benefits of a traditional aerobics class, but in the refreshing confines of a swimming pool.
  • A perfect way to energize yourself in the pool without being a skilled swimmer. In fact, you don't even need to get your hair wet!
  • A well-rounded exercise program led by Penn State instructors.
  • Great way for cardiovascular conditioning and muscle toning.
  • Water-based exercise can benefit older adults by improving the quality of life and decreasing disability. It also improves or maintains the bone health of post-menopausal women.
  • Meet new people.
  • Its lots of fun, and great for your body!
