Aquatic Exercise

Get fit with water fitness classes without going far from home. Come swim and exercise in the water at the Pittston YMCA. Aquatic exercise is gentle on the joints and makes it a safer option for those suffering from joint problems. Our pool workouts can be tailored to fit your individual needs. You can even do your own pool workout with our equipment as long as a lifeguard is on duty!
