Dive into an aquatic experience like no other. The aquatic facilities at St. Bernards Health & Wellness offer members of all ages an enjoyable experience in and around the water. The aquatic center is open daily during regular facility hours; however, the pool closes 15 minutes before facility closing. The aquatic center is accessible directly from the locker rooms or the family changing area.
The aquatic facility offers three indoor pool areas for members to enjoy, along with many options for aquatic programming. The flagship area of our aquatic center is the four-lane 25-meter lap pool. This center area is designated for lap swimming, aquatic exercise classes, swim lessons, and family swim (the third weekend of the month). The pool temperature is 80-85° making it an excellent option for working out. Those looking to swim laps can keep track of their distance by knowing that 64 lengths of the pool equal 1 mile.
After a workout, give your body a chance to relax and recover in the whirlpool area of the aquatic center. The whirlpool is kept at an ideal temperature of 101-104° for our adult members to enjoy. The whirlpool offers different accessibility options and plenty of room to stretch out and relax after your workout or a stressful day.
The final area of our aquatic center is our warm water therapy pool. This pool is kept at a warm 90-94°. It is helpful to our members who suffer from various ailments, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, total joint replacement, chronic lower back pain, and fibromyalgia. Please reference the class schedule for water wellness classes or therapy rehabilitation times.
It is okay if you are not sure where to begin your aquatic training or therapy. You are not alone at St. Bernards Health & Wellness. Our personal training staff can help you reach your goals to increase strength, range of motion, build endurance, or even lose weight. Using one of our personal trainers is a great way to diversify your workout and have a program designed to meet your fitness goals and needs.
