The last thing anyone wants to do first thing on a winter morning is get out of their warm bed, let alone head outside for a freezing jog or drive to a just-as-drafty gym where by the time you’re actually warmed up, your workout is over.
Now imagine starting your winter workouts by slipping into an inviting, 85 degree pool; instantly warm and ready to work, safe from the elements and any chill in the air.
Not only is the pool great for staying warm, but it is also a very valuable and underutilized fitness tool. Whether you are looking to increase your flexibility without attending a trendy yoga class, to ease the painful symptoms of chronic conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis safely and naturally, to burn major calories without aggravating nagging injuries or you just want to remember what it feels like to splash around again, the water is the perfect place.
The water provides both resistance to build muscle strength and buoyancy, so there is less impact on your body compared to exercising on land. The warmth of the water also makes muscles, joints and connective tissues more flexible, similar to the effect experienced during a hot yoga class, so it is great for those recovering from an injury looking to increase flexibility and range of motion.
The pool is also the perfect place for those just starting out on their fitness journey to dip their toe in the water, so to speak. Group aquatics classes can ease your body into exercise in a fun, supportive, judgement-free atmosphere.
Highline Club boasts the only private, heated, indoor pool in the area, offering a variety of aquatics classes included with membership, designated lap swim times and limited family swim hours to ensure everyone gets the right pool experience for their needs. After your swim, spend a little time soaking in the spa, or sweating it out in the sauna or steam room, while making new friends and starting your New Year off on the right foot. You said this year would be the year, right?
“I wanted to tell you how much I love the Aqua Boot Camp (ABC) class, it is such a great work out. I love that people of totally different fitness levels can all get a great work out at the same time. I joined the club after attending the ABC class through the Burien Park Department, what a great way to be introduced to the Highline Club.”

From a Burien Parks and Rec staffer:
“I just had a client come in to sign up for the January Aqua Fit and rave about the class. She said she has tried all kinds of diets and nothing has helped her like this class. She has lost inches and is wearing smaller sizes and has lost her “big tummy” (her words). She mentioned how easy it is and safe because of the water. I have helped her before and I could see the transformation in her, not only physically, but in attitude and over-all well being. This made my day.☺”
