Registration continues for summer programs. Check back often as more programs become available throughout the summer. New sessions of outdoor fitness classes and 55+ Active Adults programs begin on July 26. Registration is available beginning June 30 at 7 a.m. at www.clarington.net/BeActive.

Our Orono Outdoor pool is open for pre-booked swim sessions. Register each Wednesday for the following week. A maximum of 20 swimmers will be allowed at each session. Aquafit will start on July 26, and swimming lessons will begin in August once Clarington moves into Step Three of the Province’s three-step Roadmap to Reopen.

We will continue to monitor updates from the Province as we slowly reopen and resume services following all Provincial guidelines. Stay up to date on the latest information on how COVID-19 is impacting our programs and services by visiting www.clarington.net/COVID-19.

Aquafit is an in-water fitness class designed to strengthen your muscles and improve your cardiovascular fitness. Working out in water adds resistance to your muscles without the impact land activities can have. It is also a great cross-training opportunity for those looking for something new. We have classes for swimmers and non-swimmers alike.

Aquafit class descriptions

Aquafit - General

An excellent fitness-in-water class for all age groups of swimmers and non-swimmers. An instructor will lead you through a series of exercises for flexibility, muscular strength, cardiovascular health and stretching. Exercise in water relieves stress on joints and provides a more effective workout as you work against the resistance of the water.

Deep Water Aquafit

Deep Water Aquafit is held in deep water using flotation belts for added support. This class eliminates impact on your joints and is ideal for developing core strength, balance, stamina and enhancing cross-training. It is suitable for all fitness levels, and we encourage participants to work at their own pace.

Aquafit 55+

Shallow Water Aquafit

Workouts will focus on cardio training, strengthening, stretching and toning in shallow or chest-deep water. Participants will use a variety of equipment to enhance the program and encourage increased stamina. This program is suitable for all fitness levels and swimming abilities.
