Aqua Zumba = 2x per week starting, 5/13!

Splash your way into shape with invigorating low-impact aquatic exercise! Aqua Zumba® integrates energizing music and international rhythms with cardio-conditioning and body-toning moves in shallow water to give a new meaning to the idea of a refreshing workout. No experience necessary – just don’t be afraid to get wet and have fun! Being in the pool is a great avenue to fitness for so many who have joint issues or who prefer a low-impact approach to a cardio workout. The resistance provided by the water allows people to work harder than they do in land classes, even when deconditioned or new to a fitness routine. Come join the pool party that is Aqua Zumba®!


WHERE: West Middle School Pool, 7145 Moorsbridge Rd, Portage, MI 49024


WHEN: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7:35-8:35pm, May 13th through August 14th (NO CLASS 6/10 or 6/12 or 7/3)


COST: $8 drop-in or purchase a Just Move punch card (10 classes for $65 or 20 classes for $100)

NOTE: Just Move Unlimited Members can drop in for just $5.
