Aquatic Body Conditioning

The College of New Jersey Aquatic Center is proud to offer ABC, part of a series of programs designed to provide the college and surrounding community with the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of aquatic activities.

Each class of ABC consists of a short warm-up followed by a 45 minute series of instructor led exercises designed to increase aerobic capacity, muscle strength and flexibility. Classes meet either two or three times per week.

ABC Advantages

  • The buoyancy of the water prevents joint and muscle stress often associated with traditional aerobics by cushioning the weight bearing joints.
  • The resistance of the water provides an excellent medium for improving strength without the use of weights. The movement/circulation of the water provides continuous gentle muscle and joint massage, relieving muscle soreness and improving flexibility. The program is 100% individualized. Participants can complete the exercises at their current level of fitness.

Consult your physician before undertaking this or any exercise program.
