Water Fitness Testimonials
"I have never taken a water fitness class before because I never really learned how to swim. I decided to take Renee's class with my sister. We started in the shallow end and then made our way to the deep end with floatation rings. Not only was Renee's class a workout, it was unbelievably fun too. If you think water fitness is for an older crowd, think again. This is a totally fun class that will jump-start your fitness routine and get you in great shape FAST!!" — Jane F.

"I was able to work with Renee in pool exercises prior to my knee replacement operation last spring and the pool exercises allowed me to strengthen my leg muscles which contributed to my successful recovery from the surgery. I am scheduled for my next knee surgery early this summer and hope Renee will be able to have classes so I can have the same level of success for knee # 2." — Bonnie Mendenhall
