Parent & Child Aquatics

For children ages 5 months – 2.5 years. Parents and children explore water activities through games and song, and parents learn skills to help their children adjust to the water environment.

Youth Swimming Lessons

Our health club is the place to go for water safety. In addition to swimming lessons for all ages, we also offer certification classes in Lifeguard Training, Water Safety Instruction (WSI), CPR, and First Aid. 

Aqua Fitness Classes

Aquatic exercise is a great workout, and because of water’s resistance, you’ll burn calories, tone muscles and ramp up your heart rate. The good news is that the buoyancy of water is gentler on the joints than an impactful workout on the gym floor.

Low-impact aqua fitness classes at our Montrose health club include:

  • Aqua Zumba – cardio dance fun in the water
  • Cardio Jam – traditional aquatic exercise that revs your heart to burn calories
  • Cardio Wave – low impact exercise on both the shallow and deep ends of the pool
  • Deep Intervals – for intermediate and advanced, high intensity intervals combine with lower intensity “rest” periods
  • FITTness Training – a high energy class with the F.I.T.T. principles of frequency, intensity, time and tempo
  • Wellness Mind & Body – a healing class to help you relax, clear your mind and tune into your body
