While it was our hope to run a fall swim program, we are still waiting on recommendations from the provincial and local health authorities. At this time, our fall schedule is on hold and we are unable to proceed with the scheduled summer registration at this time. We will continue to update this page as new information becomes available.


We thank you for your patience and understanding.

 


About Aquafitness

Aquafitness classes with the same name will vary in content depending on the instructor as Holland Bloorview encourages our instructors to bring their personal touch to each program. Our instructors design each class to work the total body and give you a pleasant Aquafitness experience.

During each class participants are encouraged to work at their own pace and within their own limitations, remembering to do only what feels right.

• If you have medical limitations, you should only do what your medical advisor has recommended. Participants are encouraged (not mandatory) to advise their instructor of medical limitations so the instructor can monitor/modify the movements.

• These programs are suitable for people who have arthritis or fibromyalgia. Others who have a similar need for a gentle workout are also welcome to attend. 

• Pregnant participants should advise their instructor as soon as possible. Your instructor will provide helpful guidelines to make your class a pleasant experience.

• Female participants should wear swimsuits that provide the same breast support that they would wear to a land class.

• Bring a bottle of water to all classes.
