The Wenatchee Valley YMCA offers a variety of Aquatic opportunities for adults throughout the week. Whether training for a triathlon or rehabilitating a knee, swimming provides a great option for developing overall fitness. Water Fitness classes accommodate all abilities and enhance daily life through strength and endurance exercises in a positive group setting. 13 to 15 year olds may participate in adult aquatic programs, if they are under the direct and constant supervision of an adult family member over the age of 21. UPLIFT graduates may participate without adult supervision. Please see the current Pool Schedules at the Membership Services Desks for times for adult open swim, adult lap swim, water walking, deep water fitness, and shallow water fitness.
Water Fitness uses the buoyancy and resistance of water to allow for a quality workout in an environment that is beneficial to a wide variety of abilities. Deep and shallow water formats are provided to enhance strength, flexibility and overall wellness. Click Here for Current Pool Schedule.
