In Aquacise, qualified instructors guide participants through various exercises. No swimming skills are necessary. This program is offered at 10 a.m. Monday and Wednesday beginning June 4, and is taught by Instructor Lucille Raines. Another class is offered at 9:45 a.m. Tuesday and Thursday beginning June 5 and is taught by Instructor Bernadette Wagner.
Free Flow is an energizing aqua class held in deep water in order to give participants a great cardiovascular and toning workout. Because flotation belts are used, no swimming skills are necessary. This class is taught by Ronni Ward and meets at 11 a.m. Monday and Wednesday beginning June 4.
Total Water Workout provides a vigorous level of water workout. Participants will use resistance equipment to challenge large and small muscle groups in order to work on flexibility, range of motion, and strengthening. This class is taught by Instructor Bernadette Wagner. Two class times beginning on June 4 are offered: one at 5:30 p.m. and another at 6:30 p.m.
While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
The JCPRD's ACTIVITIES catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pick-up at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District's website at www.jcprd.com
