Dive in!

If your child is taking swimming lessons or is a member of the swim team, perhaps you’ve already encountered boutique wellness classes.

As you might have noticed this summer, the diversification of swimming as a way to keep fit has gone beyond swimming laps and water aerobics. Kids, tweens, teens and adults of all ages are embracing low impact aquatic exercises delivered with modern twists.

In some pools, music is played through underwater speakers; intervals and circuits are added to make full body workouts. Some classes end with high energy party segments that raise the fun level. And of course, the mindfulness trend comes to the pool through classes of “noodlers” who silently float on flexible foam noodles.

Still only swimming laps? Look around. There might be a more interesting activity that might even become a cross-generational favorite!
