 The Pools
Lap Pool

Lap Pool

  • 6 lanes - 25 yards in length
  • cantilever gutter system
  • recessed ladders
  • starting blocks
  • hydraulic chair lift
  • 83° water temp to accommodate active swimmers and aqua-fitters

C-Shaped Pool

Therapy Pool

The therapy pool is heated to 90 degrees to better accommodate temperature sensitive aqua-fitters and for our new arthritis classes. This warmer temperature will more sufficiently suit the needs of children's smaller bodies for the swim lesson program.

Features of this pool include a hand rail step-in entry, a unique design shape, and a hydraulic chair lift.

Questions regarding pool hours, pool use, pool rental, etc., can be directed to Paula Tomitz at (928) 776-2238.

 Aerobics Room (Building 2, Rooms #140/141)

Aerobics Room

The aerobics room is equipped with a specialty wood spring floor for our group exercise classes. The practicality of this flooring is almost surpassed by the sheer beauty of the wood grain. It also has the ability to be divided in two.
