Take to the water with UAPB exercise course

PINE BLUFF, Ark. - The Division of Graduate Studies and Continuing Education at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff is offering Water Aerobics classes. The non-credit course will be offered February 1-24 every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:15 - 6:00 pm in the Kenneth L. Johnson Health, Physical Education and Recreation (HPER) Complex. The cost for the class is $40 per person.

Water aerobics is a great way to exercise and get in shape without harming your joints or bones, according to Lucretia Williams, instructor for the course. Water Aerobics works the whole body in a fun and invigorating atmosphere. The routines are not all about swimming - in fact, most water aerobic routines don’t even require a person to be able to swim.
