Ongoing water fitness classes are taking place at Abington Heights High School pool Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. until noon. The fee is $2 per session. No registration is required. Aquasize gives the benefits of an exercise that is less stressful on the joints and uses a large range of motion to help strengthen arms, legs, back and abdominals. Running, jogging and walking underwater in a pool not only strengthens the leg and hip muscles - the quadriceps, hamstrings and gluteals - but helps to develop cardiorespiratory fitness. Anyone can benefit from a total fitness program conducted in the water. Swimmers and non-swimmers alike exercise to burn calories, build endurance and tone muscles. For more information on the water fitness classes, contact instructor Janet Beck at 587-3873.
