Water Exercise

Water exercise classes are a fun way to use the resistance and buoyancy of the water to improve cardiovascular fitness, strength, and flexibility.  classes combine light to moderate aerobic workout with exercises in the shallow and deep water to help increase endurance, core strength, and flexibility. Water exercise is perfect if you’re looking for a fun, low impact workout.

Build a skill. save a life.

Being a top-quality lifeguard comes from rigorous training, commitment, vigilance, and quality supervision. A lifeguard who is experienced, prepared, and confident is an asset to the community. That's why the Sacramento Central YMCA offers American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification Courses.

The Lifeguard Program is a scenario-based training course, where participants learn what it takes to be a professional lifeguard. This course provides all the certifications required by the State of California to lifeguard at any pool, beach, or water park
