The April series is starting on Monday, April 1, at Courthouse Fitness Battle Creek.

The May series is starting on Monday, May 6, at Courthouse Fitness West Salem.

You are encouraged to arrive to the pool 15 minutes early so you can get in the water and warm up with gentle, pleasant movements before the start of each lesson.

It will be helpful to your learning process if you will be able to schedule your own practice time outside these lesson times.

Personal Practice Required

It is important to your progress that you practice on your own between lessons, at least once, if not more times. Please hold off on scheduling lessons until you have room in your schedule to include those personal practice times between. They don’t need to be long practice sessions, but frequent practice will be very good for you.


This course is intended for those who experience strong fear or anxiety in water, who have a hard time submerging the face underwater, and for those who would like to feel more comfortable in the water before taking full swim lessons.

This course is recommended for those who would like to take the aqua fitness course, but are not comfortable yet in taking feet off the floor of the pool or submerging your face underwater. This course will prepare you to safely handle those likely situations in the pool.
