Our pool is kept at 86 degrees.
Water exercise has huge benefits: studies show that it can measurably improve physical, mental and
emotional well-being. 
Water allows for greater range of motion, improving flexibility. 

The resistance provided by a water workout promotes muscle strength, tone and balance and body composition is improved due to the reduction of excess body fat.

 All of these benefits are provided in a stress free environment which allows for greater endurance for your exercise workout.

Our members are having fun
while gaining strength and movement.

FITNESS AT THE FRAIM CENTER

A conditioned exercise program is vital to a person's well-being. 
By exercising regularly you are promoting better overall health.
