Deep Water Running Program

A total body workout tone and define muscle, strengthen your core and get an amazing cardio workout… joint friendly/low impact workout.

Participants will be in the dive section of the pool with an aquatic fitness belt or a noodle (bring your own equipment) and socially distancing will be encouraged.  We will follow an interval training workout to challenge your strength and get your heart pumping.

This is a vertical water exercise. You do need to be able to enter and exit the pool independently, and maintain vertical body alignment using a buoyancy belt.  Each participant must provide their own flotation device. Water Gym belts are best and can be purchased from Water Gym. A small size fits most participants (10 participants maximum).
