There is a new fitness craze happening from Australia to the United States using “tsunami fitness boards.” Through a series of exercises, class participants increase stabilization, balance and endurance while having a blast in the pool. YWCA Greenwich is the only fitness facility in Fairfield County to offer this new program.
YW Floats offers a safe and fun workout on the water, designed to grow core and joint stabilization, improve overall fitness levels, prevent injury through better balance, and burn calories.
“It’s a fast, effective and exciting workout,” said Shanna Sudderth, Director of Aquatics, YWCA Greenwich, “and everyone loves the challenge of staying on the board!”
Classes will begin on Monday, April 8, and they are included with YWCA Greenwich memberships. Drop-in fees are also available for non-members.
More details can be found at www.ywcagreenwich.org/YW-Floats.
On Saturday, April 6, YWCA Greenwich will preview YW Floats along with a host of other YWCA fitness programs during a fitness extravaganza they’re calling “Spring into Fitness.”
The event is designed to promote healthy living for adults and showcase YWCA Greenwich instructors and classes.
The free event is for adults and will run from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Participants can take as many classes as they like, and refreshments will be available to keep everyone hydrated.
All members of the Greenwich community and beyond are invited to join the fun.
The schedule for the day can be found at www.ywcagreenwich.org/springintofitness.
Those who want to try YW Floats should sign up ahead of time at the front desk since space is limited.
To help parents who want to try a few classes, a supervised game room will be available for children four years of age and older. Parents can drop off their children by signing them in and out of the playroom. Supervisors, who are trained YWCA after-school and camp counselors, will ensure a safe and fun environment for all children.
“Since opening its doors in 1919, YWCA Greenwich has always put the health and wellness of the Greenwich community first,” said Mary Lee Kiernan, President and CEO, YWCA Greenwich, adding, “We hope you can join us for this fun day of fitness.”
