Kids aren’t the only ones who get to have fun in the pool this November. The Flat Rock Community Center is holding three different swim classes, one for seniors only and two for everyone.
Seniors can learn how to aquacise from November 4th to December 19th. You can choose to come in from 10 to 11am on either Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. Participants will receive a full body workout, based on moves that are designed specifically for the joint-sensitive individual. The water will help support you while the stretches and exercises will improve joint mobility and flexibility. The pool is accessible by both stairs and a zero depth entry for those who cannot use stairs. This class will cost $33 for a six week class per day for residents and $35 for non-residents.
For anyone over 16 years of age who has arthritis, why not join the Arthritis Aquacise Plus? This program is from the National Arthritis Foundation and works on balance, posture, breathing and strengthening exercises. This program will also consists of muscle strengthening and cardio-vascular endurance exercises. This class will run from November 5th to December 19th, on Tuesday and/or Thursday. It will cost $33 for a six week class per day for residents and $35 for non-residents.
Both the Senior Aquacise and Arthritis Aquacise Plus will allow drop in spaces for $6.
A new program this year is the SilverSplash, on Mondays and/or Wednesdays from 10am to 11am. SilverSplash is a class full of variety, using shallow water moves. This class will help improve agility, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance. No swimming ability is required to join this class. Participants will be using a special SilverSneakers kickboard to develop strength, balance and coordination. This class is free to SilverSneakers members and $6 per class for drop ins.
