Now at the Franklin Recreation Complex
Williamson County Parks and Recreation (WCPR) is pleased to announce the addition of Aqua Cycling classes at the Franklin Recreation Complex, 1120 Hillsboro Rd. The five weekly classes are the first of their type offered in WCPR facilities.
Aqua cycling has been described as an underwater spin class, using specially designed stationary bicycles partially submerged in the heated indoor pool. Originally conceived as a form of rehabilitation therapy for athletes, aqua cycling is easier on the joints than land-based cycling classes. Water cushions the joints and buoyancy makes the body feel lighter.
The Franklin Recreation Complex will offer the following Aqua Fitness options: Hydro Burn, a high intensity class on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 a.m.; Gentle Journey, a low-intensity class geared toward seniors and beginners on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.; and Tabaqua Spin, a higher intensity workout using Tabata techniques (short, intense intervals) on Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Each class can be customized to the individual needs of participants.
Admission to Aqua Cycling is included in all premium passes, or patrons may pay $8 ($4 for ages 55+) per class. A limited number of aqua cycles are available (first-come, first served), and patrons may check in and reserve a bicycle 30 minutes before each class begins.
