  • Water exercise classes can be a fun environment to exercise with opportunities to socialize; however, do realize it still is an exercise class. Please refrain from distracting other members of the class. If you become involved in a conversation with someone, move to the side or back of the class so you do not distract participants who are following the instructors' directions.

You know your body's limitations and abilities so please make the modifications needed to ensure you have the best workout possible.
  • Ask your instructor for modifications if needed.
  • It is appropriate to consult with your doctor prior to beginning any exercise program.
