Water Fitness Classes


Water Fitness (aerobics) is quickly becoming the top adult exercise program in the nation. With ease of motion and limited resistance, it provides a great healthy alternative to traditional impact fitness . All classes are taught by trained instructors. Our classes are available to those ages 16+.

To comply with the Sacramento County Public Health Order, participants must follow these guidelines:

  • Maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others while in the facility, including when waiting in line, using the restroom, and in the water.
  • Wear a face covering while occupying indoor areas (such as restrooms), while in line at the Wackford Complex, and when unable to maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others. Face coverings are not required while in the water.
  • Arrive ready to swim. Restrooms and outdoor showers will be available, but lockers will not be available.
  • Restrooms may be closed periodically for cleaning and disinfecting.
  • We encourage you to bring your own equipment as limited equipment will be available. (Equipment will be disinfected after every class)
  • No loitering before or after swimming sessions.

Because the situation continues to evolve rapidly, the District may reevaluate and decide to modify these measures or schedules based on guidance from public health officials.
