Waterfit

The physical properties of water such as resistance, buoyancy and warmer temperatures create an interesting alternative to land fitness. Water exercising exerts less impact on lower joints and is suitable for swimmers and non-swimmers, men and women. Waterfit classes take participants through a warm-up, aerobic activities, muscle conditioning and a cool down, all in an aquatic environment.

Drop-in Waterfit programs are offered at all Town of Oakville pools. Check Active Oakville, the online drop-in program finder, for the most up-to-date information.
