Aqua Aerobics FAQs
What to Bring to an Aqua Aerobics class?
While you don’t need any special equipment for one of our aqua aerobics classes, remember to bring what you would usually take when you go swimming: a swimming costume or shorts, and a towel. Any resistance weights used during the class will be provided.
Water shoes and googles are optional, but don’t forget to bring a water bottle to hydrate after the class.
Is water aerobics good for building muscle?
While mainly a cardio-based exercise option, the resistance of being in the water will help to build muscles and increase your strength. To push yourself even further, try adding some light weights or attending one of our Deep Aqua Aerobics classes.
