Water Aerobics

Splash Bash Water Aerobics

Must be at least 18-years-old | FREE

Splash Bash is a free program hosted in partnership with Oak Park Recreation, the Kidney Foundation, and the Health Alliance Plan. This activity is geared towards improving the overall well-being of older adults. The class uses all aspects of a typical aerobics class but with the added health benefits of water as a natural form of resistance. This creates an excellent full-body workout with great heart benefits and endurance development.

We are also looking to implement a water aerobics class on Sunday mornings. A finalized schedule should be available soon for all water aerobics classes. Call (248) 691-7555 for details.
