Best Summertime Workout

Austin Parks & Recreation Dept. of Aquatics

Not much of a jock or a joiner? Check out Austin PARD's summer water aerobics classes. Although available at many city pools, Northwest pool is our personal favorite. Expect a low-impact workout with no discernible sweat. We love splashing and flexing in a happy neighborhood pool, shaded by waving oak trees. Our fearless leader, Brandi Allen, guides us through our paces ruthlessly and with great good humor. Within a brief 40 minutes, we receive the benefits of a 90-minute workout with no strain on our couch potato-bones and joints. Sessions last a mere two weeks and are available all summer long, should you find yourself actually enjoying exercising.
