TRENTON — While summer programs continue providing exercise and recreation opportunities, Trenton Parks and Recreation announced its fall fitness and swimming programs.
Parks and Recreation Director Joann Gonyea said space is limited for individual and family activities set to begin in September. Registration opens Aug. 25 for a variety of classes and programs. Courses are available for all skill and fitness levels.
For those looking to get or stay in shape, courses will be offered in Beginning and Continuing Yoga, Chair Yoga, Meditation, Tai Chi and Stretch and Strengthen Mind and Body.
Beginners are encouraged to sign up for the Burn and Firm class open to all ages. Similar activities are available for residents 50 and older at Senior Aerobics, a safe and effective way to burn calories and improve cardio-vascular conditioning.
More advanced fitness enthusiasts may wish to burn the maximum number of calories in Zumba classes, open to all levels seeking a challenging workout.
Even when summer has come and gone, workouts in the water will be available for all fitness levels at the Trenton High School pool. Those with limited mobility may wish to take the plunge in Swimnastics or Deep Water Exercise courses.
Children’s swimming programs continue through fall and winter including lessons and parent-tot classes. Children able to swim 25 yards unassisted are eligible for the Trenton Swim Club.
Open pool sessions available to all residents begin Sept. 8, and are available from 7:30 to 9 p.m.; adult lap swim from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursdays. Open swim sessions will also be held at Arthur Middle School from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Thursdays. Punch cards are available for $40 for residents, $60 for non-residents and are good for 20 visits.
