About Aqua Fitness

About aqua fitness

Lakewood Aqua Fitness offers the most complete lineup of aquatic fitness classes in Colorado. There is something for everyone, regardless of where you are in your journey toward wellness.  

The aquatic environment is completely unique and provides countless benefits to class participants. These benefits include:

  • The water creates a low or no impact environment causing minimal stress to joints.
  • The water provides support to develop balance and core strength.
  • The resistance of water supports overall muscle strength and endurance.
  • The support of the water enhances flexibility and range of motion in joints.
  • The average one-hour aqua fitness class will burn 400-500 calories.
  • Classes are fun, relaxing and promote lasting friendships and community. 

Anyone ages 14 and up can participate in aqua fitness classes. All classes are suitable for women who are pregnant. Modifications will be given if necessary. Aqua fitness shoes are recommended.
