Parks & Recreation to teach water aerobics classes

Craig Parks & Recreation will offer two different types of water aerobics classes over the summer — shallow water and deep water.

Sessions begin June 4 and run through Aug. 9.

Shallow water classes, offered from noon to 1 p.m. and 6 to 7 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, focuses on burning fat and calories, building muscle, improving circulation, reducing blood sugar levels and lowering blood pressure.

The aim of deep water classes, offered at the same times Tuesdays and Thursdays, are to help with joint and arthritis issues in the body with the aid of a floatation device.

All classes are at the Craig Pool Complex, 605 Washington St.

The cost is $40 to register for either shallow or deep water or $70 for the pair.

A drop-in fee of $4 per session applies for those who don’t register for the full schedule.

For more information, call 826-2017.
