As in all YMCA programs, the goal for the National YMCA aquatic program is to develop the whole person, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Teaching methods are designed to help each participant develop his/her fullest potential, to encourage awareness of safety, and to master skills to the best of their ability. YMCA aquatic programs, offered at the YMCA of Hannibal, are not only beneficial in developing a healthy lifestyle, but are also an excellent place for youths and adults alike to make new friends, and most importantly, to have fun!



Group Exercises Classes (free to members)

We are pleased to offer a variety of different water aerobics and arthritis classes for our members. Step into the pool and surround yourself with resistance you can use in your work out – WATER! Moving in the water is a fantastic low impact option for those with back issues, and or joint pain. Majority of class time is in the shallow end where you stand in chest deep water, deep water aerobics are an option for those comfortable going in water over their head with floatation.  

• Water Aerobics ◊ Mon/Wed/Fri 9:00am - 10:00am (medium pace)

• Aqua Ease ◊ Mon/Wed/Fri 10:00am – 11:00am (arthritis – range of motion – slower pace)
