Water Week at the Ranch

Hydrofit7.jpgJoin us July 19th for Water Week at the Ranch with Craig Stuart!

The warm, dry climate of the Ranch has always enticed water lovers to our comprehensive summer water program. During this week we offer a wide range of classes that are easy on your joints yet extremely impactful in toning and creating more muscle strength.

The Wave

Discover how fun and invigorating it is to create wave action in the pool. Harness the power of liquid resistance and experience a body-friendly workout that feels good. Our low-impact, shallow water class targets aerobic endurance, muscular strength, balance and flexibility.
M, W, F at 11:00am

HYDRO-FIT Deep Water Training

Deep water training is an ideal non-impact addition to your Ranch week. Use specialized HYDRO-FIT buoyancy and resistance equipment to strengthen and tone your entire body while pushing fat-burning systems into high gear. No swimming skills are required, although comfort in deep water is recommended.

H2O Pool Pilates

Experience Pilates inspired training in the pool. Use simple buoyancy equipment and water’s natural assistance and resistance to train the deepest muscle layers in your body. Develop core strength for improved posture, balance and coordination.

Aqua Ease

Experience soothing exercises in the pool. Ease muscle soreness and body aches as you discover how water provides support, assistance and resistance. Improve balance, enhance flexibility and restore mobility through gentle movement in the water.
