|Three Water Exercise Classes Offered For 50 Plus Beginning Oct. 15 or 16|
Three different water exercise classes are being offered in mid-October by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
The programs are: Aquacise, Abyss Bliss (formerly Free Flow), and Total Water Workout. All three programs have classes starting on Oct. 15 or 16 and take place at the Roeland Park Aquatic Center, 4843 Rosewood, Roeland Park. Class cost for any one of these three classes for 11 50-minute sessions is $36 per person for Johnson County residents or $40 for nonresidents. Classes will not meet on Nov. 12, 21, or 22. Search for the keywords "water exercise" to find these programs in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
In Aquacise, instructors guide participants through various exercises. No swimming skills are necessary. This program is offered at 9:45 a.m. Tuesday and Thursday beginning Oct. 16.
Abyss Bliss 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 meets at 11 a.m. Tuesday and Thursday beginning Oct. 16.
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 offered at 5:30 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday beginning Oct. 15.
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
