One of the most unique features of the Pieters Family Life Enter is the state-of-the-art HydroWorx 2000 pool. The Life Center has a variety of aquatic-based fitness classes focused on health and healing for people with chronic disease or pain.
“Aquatic exercise reduces pain and helps improve joint range of motion while strengthening and relaxing muscles,” said Barb Cacia, wellness coordinator at the Pieters Family Life Center. “The buoyancy helps to protect recuperating knees, ankles, and hips- especially for people recuperating from knee or hip replacements.”
Kathy Sawicki, who participates in aqua fitness, agrees that her wellness has improved by using the HydroWorx pool. “I have experienced more flexibility, an ease of joint pain and have found improved strength and mobility.”
And Mary Schwab, who also uses the pool, has seen benefits in other areas of her life as well. “I feel I have improved my physical wellness and therefore have benefited from the emotional and spiritual aspects of living a fuller, more active lifestyle.”
Enjoy gentle exercises that will help improve joint range of motion while strengthening and relaxing muscles.
