3 Reasons Water Fitness Works

Crystal Garland, Director of Aquatics

It’s getting cold outside but it’s still warm by our eight-lane indoor pool! Did you know we offer six complimentary water fitness classes for you to enjoy no matter the weather? These classes will get your heart rate up, burn calories and help you feel good in and out of the water, at any age! Our one-hour water fitness classes are offered Monday through Friday at 9:15am and Saturday at 9:00am. We’d love to see you there!

Here are three reasons to love water fitness classes at Greenwood:

Low Impact Advantage

The joint impact of running in the water is significantly less than that of running on land. Water fitness is great for those with joint conditions or currently undergoing physical rehabilitation.

Class Variety

We offer three Aqua Fit classes in the shallow lanes and two deep water classes. (View the schedule.) Our instructors will coach you, challenge you and provide motivation. Water-based classes offer the same benefits you get from other fitness classes, including muscle toning, improvement of posture and balance and increased flexibility.

Plenty of Cardio

Regardless of your fitness level, you can get a great workout in the water. Your instructor will offer plenty of modifications to increase or decrease the difficulty of the moves and you’re always free to go at your own pace. The combination of strength and cardio workouts, mixed with water resistance, ensures you’re getting a full body workout!

Crystal Garland, Director of Aquatics

When you challenge yourself to accomplish something you never thought you could, you find you can overcome anything. At Greenwood, our aquatics coaches and instructors are here to help you reach your goals. Whether you’re ready to take on a triathlon or your kids are thinking about becoming lifeguards, we’re here to push you and your family to new limits. And what better time to start than right now?

Join the GATC Triathlon Team 

Challenge yourself to become a better athlete by joining the triathlon team. The team trains Mondays at 6am, April to July, but it’s not too late to join! Train with brick and high-intensity workouts, as well as mini triathlons, both outdoors and at Greenwood. Coach Cyndie sends out personalized workouts, modified for your fitness level, every week. You choose your event, and Coach Cyndie will make sure you’re race ready. Many athletes decide on a sprint or Olympic distance race, but your goal is up to you.

Sign Up for the Kids Tri-Our-Village Triathlon

Have your young triathletes swim, bike and run at our 11th Annual Tri-Our-Village Kids Triathlon on September 16! “The race was challenging and a really fun time. My favorite part is running the laps around the lake and cheering on all of the other kids,” past participant Spencer Hola 
said.

Train with the American Red Cross

American Red Cross training provides young adults a rewarding opportunity to keep pools safe and to save lives. We provide classes right here at Greenwood with Jan Marie Smith. Greenwood employee Michael Zotto took a class and said, “My lifeguard certification class with Jan Smith was amazing. Jan is a fun and inclusive instructor with a wealth of information and she delivers all the necessary skills needed for the job.”

Take Private Swim Lessons 

Want to learn to swim or need more practice with a specific skill? Our coaches are here to accommodate varying needs with private swim lessons. Private lessons are a great way to develop skills in a structured and safe environment. “Private swim lessons at Greenwood fundamentally altered my daughter’s confidence in the water and her ability to successfully swim without fear. Our instructor taught my daughter the core concepts of safe swimming in a way that made it fun and highly learnable. After a year of private lessons, I take huge joy and satisfaction in knowing she is a capable and safe swimmer and has really learned to love the water!” Elizoebeth Lunsford said.
