Specialty Aquatic Classes

Here at the YMCA of Greater Whittier, we offer a variety of water-based classes that benefit the whole body—as well as the whole person! Water aerobics, pool running, or regular swimming workouts can all give you a great exercise session without the cumbersome constraints of gravity. Water exercise strengthens the heart, lungs, and muscles; builds physical endurance; alleviates strain on joints; and is an ideal means of relaxation. Moreover, our water classes are great social outlets. Meet staff and fellow members who will provide you with encouragement and fitness support!
All specialty aquatic classes are free with full membership, so why wait? Jump right in—the water's fine!
