Benefits: Cross train with the three dimensions and characteristics of water – buoyancy, support and resistance! With little to no impact on your joints, water exercise improves your cardio fitness while strengthening and toning muscles. Using water’s resistance, work out at your own intensity level and increase as you go. No swimming skills are needed and classes held in the deep water use floatation devices. Water shoes are recommended.

Locations: Juniper Swim & Fitness Center and Larkspur Community Center

Fees & Passes: Multi-facility swim and fitness fees, passes and discounts available.

Note: During inclement weather or poor air quality, be sure to check schedules regularly for possible cancellations or location changes.

Cardio Current Class

This is the same great current class you know and love, but with a cardio emphasis. You can also expect balance and flexibility work.

Current Channel Workout

This class will focus on giving you the instruction and confidence to safely walk, run, stabilize, tone and gain strength.  The current provides resistance to work every part of your body.

Deep/Shallow Toning

The warm water pool is the perfect environment for this workout. Class focus is on full body toning and exercises that create a strong core and good posture.

Deep/Shallow Water Workout

Water provides a safe and effective way to maintain or improve your fitness level without jarring your joints. Moderate-to-high intensity class designed to increase cardiovascular performance, muscle strength, and stamina. Choose shallow or deep water (buoyancy devices must be worn in deep water).

Deep Water Running

Move against the resistance of water and create a challenging workout with directional changes. Run, ski, stride as you become a more effective and efficient runner with zero impact. Great for cross training.

Deep Water Workout

Mobility Through Water

Consists of a series of gentle exercises with focus on improving strength, flexibility, balance, range of motion, and cardiovascular fitness. Designed by the Arthritis Foundation, this is a great program for people with arthritis and chronic conditions to have in their fitness routine.

Tethered Water Running

High intensity deep water running class providing total body workout without any impact. Your flotation belt is anchored to a lane line, providing even greater resistance. This class is set to upbeat music. Workout harder, get your heart rate up higher and burn more calories than running on land.

Warm Water Wellbeing

Warm-water, therapeutic exercise class specifically designed for people that have chronic health conditions, like Parkinson’s, Diabetes, Spinal Dysfunction, Heart Disease and COPD. We recommend checking with your physician before starting any exercise regimen. Water shoes are required. You are encouraged to bring a support person, or caregiver, should you need assistance.

Class Etiquette

In group exercise, like all social settings, common courtesy calls for sensitivity to others. Please follow these etiquette guidelines when participating in group exercise classes.

  • New to class? Arrive early and introduce yourself to the instructor, and let them know if you need any modifications.
  • Respect the instructor, and other participants, by arriving on time to get the most out of the class and warm up, and plan on participating to the best of your ability and staying through the cooldown/stretch. Modify moves as needed. If you’re looking to do your own workout, visit our studios during Workout on Your Own hours.
  • Be respectful to all by keeping conversations to a minimum. If you’re looking to socialize throughout class, please visit our studios/pools during Workout on Your Own times.
  • Participants should be clean and free of scents or perfumes.
  • Glass is prohibited in all facilities and parks.
  • Water or sports drinks must be in containers with lids.
  • Silence cell phones.
  • Exercise clothing should be clean, comfortable, and provide appropriate coverage.
  • Please ask a receptionist for help from a Facility Shift Lead if you are having an issue with another patron.
  • The safest place to secure your belongings is locked in one of our lockers.
  • For classes that have size limitations, only sign-in for yourself. You must be present at the start of class or your spot will be relinquished to the next person on the waiting list.

Check with your physician before beginning any exercise program. If you have any medical considerations (recent surgeries, knee, neck or back problems, etc.), be sure to inform your teacher beforehand. Please note that instructors may use both physical assists as well as verbal cues to help students attain proper form, alignment and position. Please notify the instructor before class begins if you do not want to be touched. You are encouraged to bring and drink water throughout your workout. Thank you for attending and enjoy your workout!

Pool Etiquette

Play your part and help keep pools clean & safe.

  • Take a quick shower prior to entering a pool.
    Rinsing removes microscopic dirt, body oils and fluids, reducing the smell of chlorine on your body and around the pool.
  • Skip the body sprays, colognes and perfumes.
    Scented items react with chlorine and create smelly chloramine off-gasses, not the intended scent.
  • Mom was right. Try to go, even if you don’t think you need it.
    A preventative restroom break is best for kiddos and grownups. For small kids, use pool diapers for those who aren’t reliably toilet-trained. They're at the front desk.
  • Don't share the germs.
    Please don't use the pool if you or your child have had a fever or diarrhea in the past two weeks.
  • Aim for the deep end.
    No diving, except in the deep ends of the pools.
  • No monkey business.
    No running, roughhousing or unsafe behavior.
