Aquatic Programs


Lessons, Classes and Swim Teams for All Ages and All Seasons.

Aquatic Classes

Dive right into our aquatic classes and build cardiovascular fitness and strength. Just like swimming, our water aerobics classes are easy on your joints, yet challenging enough to help you reach new levels of fitness. Because of their low-impact format, water aerobics classes are suitable for every age and fitness level, from beginning exercisers through elite athletes. Participants may bring and use their own water shoes and gloves.

BHRC Aquatic Classes:

ARTHRITIS/FIBRO (Low-Impact) – Aquatic exercise focusing on posture, strength, endurance, balance, range of motion, and flexibility.

PUMP H20 (Intermediate and Advanced) – Fast-paced, “fat-burning” program using resistance for over-all conditioning. This program uses vertical positioning aqua jogging, along with aerobics and includes specific exercises for strengthening back and abdominal muscles.

AQUA FIT (High-Intensity) – Fast-paced “complete” workout with total body conditioning. A great way to energize your day!

WATER GYM (Intermediate and Advanced) – A vigorous, deep-water cardiovascular and aerobic exercise with emphasis on range of motion, strength, endurance and balance.

Private Swim Lessons (Year-Round)

BHRC offers one-on-one private swim lessons, along with one-on-two semi-private swim lessons throughout the year. Our lessons give swimmers an opportunity to learn at their own pace during the time of day that is convenient for them. Private swim lessons are for any age and level of swimmer. Our instructors work hard to help our swimmers reach their individual swimming goals.
