Power Water Aerobics
Name: Power Water Aerobics
Category: Water Aerobics
Ages: 15 +
Instructor: Ann Schwarz
Location: LHS Pool
Power Water Aerobics is one of the longest running and most successful aquatic programs running at the LHS Pool. Instructor Ann Schwarz has been teaching the class for 11 years, having actually taken the class for some time before becoming an instructor. Ann is certified through the American Red Cross.
What seperates Power Water Aerobics with Ann from other classes is the great atmosphere and tone Ann sets. Everyone, from a beginner who has never taken a class before, to a veteran of many years, can have a great experience in Ann's class. The water provides a resistence equal to the force you exert, which levels the playing field. Often times, Ann notes, people don't realize they are working out because they are having so much fun in the water. The pool provides a place to work out that is much easier on those who are injured or unable to work out on land.
The class focuses on three areas: aerobic training and conditioning, upper body strength, and core strength. The aerobic training is an area that Ann builds intensity throughout each class meeting, and throughout the session. Upper body strength is an area that needs improving, and the water provides a great forum for that. The last focus area, core strength, is tackled with a variety of abdominal exercises to improve overall strength and flexibility.
Ann looks forward to seeing new faces in her popular Monday and Wednesday evening classes. New attendees are encouraged to arrive a few minutes early to the first class to meet Ann and get a brief overview.
Beginning in May 2012, participants will purchase a virtual "punch card" for classes instead of registering for a specific class. This will allow participants to attend any water aerobics class instead of having to commit to a specific day of the week.
1 class: $6/resident or $8/non-resident
6 classes: $31/resident or $43/non-resident
12 classes: $51/resident or $66/non-resident
Similar to our system for outdoor pool passes, participants will just have to check in each class they attend with the lifeguard on duty.
Mondays and Wednesdays: 8:30pm-9:30pm
