For Fun...Just Add Water!
Our Y pools are used for open swim, lessons, swim teams and much more. Please be sure to check the schedules to ensure availability.
The Kannapolis and West Cabarrus Branches offer a variety of water exercise classes for Y members that are included in your membership fees. These classes provide a great workout for all ages and fitness levels.
Benefits to Water Exercise:
> Water buoyancy helps to protect recuperating knees, ankles and hips.
> Great for overweight individuals looking for exercise, but unable to walk far enough out of the water to effectively burn calories.
> Aquatic exercise reduces pain and increases flexibility.
> Water supports and massages the body as you exercise.
> All of the benefits of land exercise-without the sweat.
> Reduced blood pressure, stress and risk of injury.
> Often recommended following surgery to minimize postoperative swelling
> Burn calories during and after exercise
