“Aqua Circus” may be better suited as the name of a new class that is set to begin at an indoor public pool in Ocean Pines.
Call it what you will—pool aerobics, aqua craze or water wacky workout— “Aqua Circuit” at the Sports Core Pool is a unique total-body workout that is ideal for those looking to burn calories without feeling a burn in their joints.
The instructor-guided Aqua Circuit classes will be offered Nov. 13 – Jan. 3 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-7:45 a.m. and Dec. 18 – Jan. 31 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 – 10:40 a.m. at 11144 Cathell Rd in Ocean Pines.
The high-intensity class features a lineup of different exercises with a variety of equipment, including underwater trampolines and hydrobikes.
“The hydrobikes and trampolines have been some of our best purchases,” said Colby Phillips, Ocean Pines aquatics and recreations director. “The workout you get in the water alone is a good one; adding these fun equipment pieces just adds to the intensity and the fun.”
The cost per person is $85 for Ocean Pines swim members, $90 for Ocean Pines residents and $95 for non-residents. The drop-in fee for the Aqua Circuit program is $8 for Ocean Pines swim members, $10 for Ocean Pines residents and $12 for non-residents per class.
The Sports Core Pool also offers a new six-week Aqua Trampoline class on Wednesdays from 11 – 11:35 a.m., beginning Dec. 19. The trampolines allow folks to bounce into a new form of calorie-burning cardio fitness.
In addition, the facility’s popular HydroRider Cycling program has availability in an upcoming Tuesday and Thursday class. Folks who are looking for a user-friendly, in-water cycling workout can enroll in the class, which runs Dec. 11 – Jan. 24 from 6 – 6:45 p.m.
Registration for these programs, which are open to the public, may be completed by calling 410-641-5255 or visiting the Sports Core Pool.
