Maximize your glutes! Many people, even athletes, have weak glutes. Part of the issue is the amount of time many of us spend sitting (driving, stationary at work, etc). Sitting for extended periods of time can result in tight, shortened hip flexors and hamstrings, and weak glutes that fail to fire properly.  This class will use a variety of exercises that help firm and tone the specific muscles of the Gluteus Maximus and Gluteus Medius.  Exercise examples include one-leg squat, one-leg deadlift, sideways, front, and transverse lunges, side-lying hip abduction, and lateral band walks.

The Learn to Swim program offers free swim lessons for toddlers (1½-5), children (6-17), and adults (18+) of all ages at our indoor pools.

Adults will learn beginner level skills such as how to safely get into and leave the water, how to control their breath by blowing bubbles, how to float and kick on front and back and move through the water. They will also learn how to stay safe around the water and what to do in case of an emergency. Adults who already know these skills will learn to move their arms and legs together in a swimming motion. Instructors will work on teaching adults to swim without assistance, and improve on skills of the beginner level.
