Water Aerobics with Mallory

Beat the heat and get in shape! All fitness levels can benefit from Water Aerobics, a fun class designed to improve muscle tone, flexibility and heart and lung capacity. Because this is a low impact workout, stress to joints is minimized. All exercises are performed to music in water that is 4 - 5 feet deep. Participants are encouraged to wear inexpensive water shoes to protect their feet while jogging in the water. Swimming ability is not required and life vests are available. $25 for 10 classes; $50 for 20 classes; or $3/class. Payable to INST. Saturday class days are subject to change. For more information, please contact the instructor, Mallory Wilson, at (334) 488 – 4098 or [email protected]
