It is with great excitement that we announce CHP Medical Programming aquatic classes are returning to the Waukee YMCA! We are unable to bring all of our pre-COVID programming back at this time. However, we will be resuming Aquatics to Restore Health starting on Monday, September 13, 2021.
This group water exercise program can help lessen symptoms of chronic disease. The program is designed to improve balance, flexibility, strength, and walking ability through water’s buoyant environment. Water allows the freedom to move and exercise with more ease and less pain.
Who Should Join? Individuals with chronic medical conditions including neurological disorders, chronic pain, de-conditioning, or other issues where exercise is believed to help reduce symptoms.
Class Participation: Participants are encouraged to wear water socks or water shoes for foot protection and bring a water bottle poolside to maintain hydration. Caregivers are welcome to participate as well. Participants will be assisted in/out of pool and with initial mobility in water by staff as needed.
WHERE: Waukee FAMILY YMCA, rec pool
When: Monday and Wednesday, 12:00—12:45
COST: Program included with YMCA Medical Membership
