Water walking is easy and a low-impact way to strengthen your body. You can walk forward and backward using the natural resistance of the water with short steps, long steps, average steps, or step kicks to provide a great alternative to land walking. Brisk water walking is more strenuous than it looks and can provide an excellent aerobic workout, burning 300 to 500 calories per hour. This class is uninstructed. We will provide water weights and water noodles for your use. Water Walkers does not require advance registration. Participants will purchase a twelve-visit punch card at the BCC Registration Counter or may also gain access to the program by purchasing a Splash annual membership or paying a regular price daily fee.
