Adult Aquatics Programs
Saw Mill Club offers numerous adult swim programs of all levels.
Exercise in the water is a low-impact activity that puts less stress on the joints. When the entire body is underwater, it experiences almost zero gravity since the water carries 90 percent of the body’s weight. This buoyancy helps older adults by improving their balance and strength. Water, also, offers resistance. It has 12 to 14 percent more resistance than air. This gentle friction aids in strengthening muscles and joints, especially for those recovering from an injury. Like land-based exercise, water exercise can increase cardiovascular fitness, lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and increase energy. It can also help people lose body fat. Exercising in the water can improve depression, anxiety, and self-esteem. It enhances flexibility, strengthens muscles, and improves circulation. Moreover, the hydrostatic pressure of the water helps increase heart and lung function. It also can encourage better blood flow to the muscles, especially the legs.
Deep Water Jams at our East Location
Using floatation belts, this class takes place in the deep end of the pool. For 45 minutes, experience zero impact, allowing the spine to align itself as no other workout can. The addition of buoyant dumb bells for a segment of deep water running, focusing on various muscle groups of the upper body, engages the core muscles and elevates heart rate. Noodle work and various stretching moves in chest-deep water round out the workout. The accompanying music and enthusiastic participants will ensure that you leave class with a sense of accomplishment and a smile on your face!
