Fitness Classes



Fitness workouts done on mats on top of the water. These workouts are done in a ladder-style progression combining plank movements, squats, V-sits, mountain climbers & more. Get ready to incorporate strength, cardio and balance movements for a total body workout that will challenge you in a unique way that land workouts don't. Not only that but you get to enjoy the outdoors while having so much FUN!


These classes take place on a small lake at a resort-style property in Franklin Park close to the entrance for Blueberry Hill Park. The exact address will be given upon registration. Let's put it this way, to call it beautiful is an UNDERSTATEMENT. It's such a scenic, gorgeous and calming environment.

There are only 5 boards available per class.  A minimum of 4 people per class is required to run.  Once registered for a class, a board is specifically reserved for you.  Therefore, a minimum of 24 hours' notice is required to cancel or reschedule a class.  If notice is not given within the 24 hours preceding the class time, then no refund or transfer will be issued as we still incur the same costs as if you had been present.

With timely notice as described above, you can choose to transfer your registration into another available time slot.  However, no refunds will be given.  Therefore, we recommend making the most of your investment by attending any of our available classes.

The only time a refund will be issued is if we have to cancel class either because there was not a minimum of 4 people registered, or the weather was inclement.  Should this happen, you will be given the option for a refund or to transfer into another available class.

We will hold class as long as the temperature is a minimum of 70 degrees and there are no storms.  A class may still be held if there is a light drizzle.  The presence of thunder and/or lightening will require us to immediately stop a class.  If class must be discontinued while you are in attendance, then you will receive a $10 credit to apply to another class.  If no other class times work for you, then you can opt for a $10 refund.
