Aqua Zumba and Tabata are a cool way to get fit.
Aqua Fitness classes are scheduled to begin at Long Branch Pool June 17. Classes are offered on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 to 9:45 a.m. through August 7.
Aqua Zumba is offered Wednesdays. The class incorporates traditional Zumba Latin dance moves with up-tempo music and adds the resistance of water for a challenge.
Aqua Tabata is offered Fridays. Tabata is high-intensity interval training that follows a 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off pattern for eight rounds. Water resistance adds to the intensity while removing the impact.
Participants must wear a swimsuit and should bring a towel and water.
Ten-class punch cards are available for $27, or single day classes can be purchased for $3 at the door.
Registration is available online at KilleenTexas.gov/Parks or in person at the Family Recreation Center.
