Looking for a new, creative way to get into shape for bathing suit season? How about aquacising?  Water fitness classes are available to all UNH students. These classes provide basic aerobic exercise in shallow or deep water, and are low impact but with the same intensity as a land-based aerobic class. This is great for people with knee or ankle problems and is a sure bet way to get you ready for bathing suit season. Each class is set to music and starts with a warm-up, proceeds into an aerobic segment, and ends with a cool-down accompanied with stretching exercises. Classes are approximately 30 minutes in duration and are free to all UNH students and members of the Hamel Recreation Center and Pool Pass Holders. All others interested in the class pay a minor $5.00 fee per class.

Aquacise classes take place on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:10 – 12:45 pm; the Monday class in shallow water and the Wednesday class in deep water. Also available are the Bikini Boot Camp and the Liquid Challenge, which take place Mondays and Thursdays from 5:30 – 6:30 pm, respectively, both in shallow water.
