Encore for ENCORE

Floppy hats and colorful swimsuits may sound like leisure wear for a pool day, but Pool Manager Deborah Hefter, alongside about 69 ENCORE students, meet once a week to work up a sweat and improve fitness and overall health.

Hefter teaches an Aquatic Fitness class for ENCORE students at the Steven Schofield Aquatics Center that is scheduled to meet Thursdays from 9 – 11 a.m.

According to the course description, the class is a “fun, fat-burning fitness workout using shallow water techniques designed for swimmers and non-swimmers. Improve posture, flexibility, strength, and cardiovascular fitness.”
