The main pool at the Greensburg YMCA has been a landmark for all of Greensburg to enjoy, and we are excited to continue that tradition. This pool has 6 lanes that offer lap swimming, circle swimming, aquatic group exercise, swim lessons, and our Greensburg YMCA Swim Teams. The warm water pool is kept around 90 degrees and offers our many different aquatic group exercise classes to help loosen up those aching joints and bones. The warm water pool offers our celebrated Happy Hinges class to loosen up those aching joints and bones. No matter what swimming experience you may have, the warm water pool is a great place to start. For more information about adult aquatics, please contact our Aquatics Coordinator, Kris Peters, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (724) 834-0150 Ext. 144.
The intensity of our group exercise classes vary from one class to another. We relate our intensity to the amount of physical exertion that an individual will fell during a class.
We provide general guidelines for these intensity levels; however they can vary on the individual’s fitness levels.
Low Intensity: This level is for those who are ready to begin their fitness journey. Classes will ease the body back into an active lifestyle, for those who have a higher activity level; this class can still be used as a recovery exercise session.
Moderate Intensity: This class is for those who want to start challenging themselves to a higher physical fitness level. The level of exertion will increase for the individuals along with allowing the participants to gain new techniques and experiences. For those who have a higher activity level, this level allows them to improve skills and technique at a higher intensity.
Active Intensity: This is for the seasoned active individual. Your instructor will push the limits of your physicality and coach you into a more difficult exercise experience. These classes are not for those who do not want to advance their fitness levels at a high level. Be prepared to bring that heart rate into your target zone.
