Water Aerobics

Water Aerobics | Independent exercise

Ages 14+
The El Cerrito Swim Center is excited to offer Water Aerobics - a fun way to improve fitness while enjoying the pool. With new strategies and protocols in place to keep participants as safe as possible during the pandemic, classes will maintain focus on aerobic endurance, resistance training, and creating an enjoyable atmosphere amongst community.

Independent Exercise is offered at times when an instructor is not available. Space is available for everyone to come and do their own work out. Because there is no instructor,  the Fitness Swim fee is charged during Independent Exercise times.

Our long time instructor Nick Osano has found another job closer to his family and will no longer be teaching after August 20th. We are very sad to see him go, he has been a phenomenal instructor that will be greatly missed. We are looking for another Water Aerobics Instructor, if you or anyone you know is interested please fill out the application at https://www.governmentjobs.com/careers/elcerrito. Good luck Nick!

Alison will be working out of state from August 23rd through September 24th. She has been training a new instructor, Molly, who will be teaching on Thursdays.

Consuelo will be on vacation September 6th - 27th, Independent Exercise will be held on those Saturdays.
