Water Aerobics

Water aerobics is probably the safest alternative to standard aerobics. It causes very little stress to your joints. It is an exercise that is performed in the water. The water provides resistance, so fairly simple movements result in a better workout than if they were done out of the water. It is fitness where you sweat less and have little to no muscle fatigue. There is no time like the present to have fun, burn calories, and strengthen core muscles!

Which class is best for me?

The answer to this question varies from person to person. Individual health history is one of the first steps in selecting the right class, followed by personal preference of shallow or deep water classes. For more information on selecting the best class for you, contact the MAC at (336) 222-5043 and ask to speak with a water aerobics instructor. 

How much does it cost for me to participate?

Your first class is complimentary. It is free! We would like for you to try a class for free at the Maynard Aquatic Center to see if it is the right class for you. It may be your first experience, and we want it to be an experience where you can try and see for yourself how water aerobics will benefit you. Wear your suit, bring a towel and water bottle, and come to the pool.
