Did that swim suit shrink again over the winter? It's time to tone up those muscles and get back into shape - remember that New Years Resolution? Vienna Woods has just the perfect programs for you.
Each Sunday morning beginning in late June the pool will open at 11:00 am for water exercise. We offer two options for adults only. The first option is lap swimming. This is a self- paced program for individuals who enjoy swimming and getting or staying in shape. Kick boards will be provided; all other swimming aids that you use must be brought from home. This is free, and who knows, you may find money on the bottom of the pool and come out ahead.
We are happy to announce that our highly regarded water aerobics instructor, Sharon Turner, is returning to teach water aerobics! The class is offered on Sunday mornings from 11am-12noon. Please bring $7 and a noodle and come enjoy an excellent workout and comraderie with your fellow participants.
This extra hour is for water aerobics and lap swimmers only. Children wishing to play and adults wishing to "sun" please adhere to the 12 noon opening time.
