Aqua Aerobics Classes

The Salvation Army Ray & Joan KROC Center
1865 Harrison Avenue
Camden, NJ 08105

The water fitness/aerobics program was developed with exercises performed primarily in a vertical position in shallow water. Water resistance creates an environment that improves cardiovascular conditioning; strength and endurance; and flexibility and balance. Classes begin with a warm-up then proceed into a series of alternating cardio and strength exercises. A cool down and stretching complete the class. This format brings freshness and fun to participants' aqua-training.
