Water Fitness & Hydration Month

Water is one of Glen Ivy’s most important components. From the 19 pools, all filled with healing hot spring water, natural sulfur, or saline (so skin is constantly being pampered) and the aerobic water activities offered daily, to the water stations placed around the grounds so that guests stay hydrated, H2O isn’t something we take lightly! Our selection of classes and activities at Glen Ivy Hot Springs serve as your resource to health, fitness, relaxation and renewal, and together with healing waters from the earth, restorative treatments, healthful cuisine, and a connection with nature, combine to create what is known as “The Glen Ivy Experience.” Our water-based classes provide a safe and challenging workout for all fitness levels, while the buoyant and resistive properties of the water ease stress on the joints. Some additional benefits of water exercise include:

  • Increased muscle strength, posture and balance.
  • Enhanced sense of wellbeing, mood and sleep quality.
  • Greater mobility and flexibility of joints.
  • Improved endurance and fitness.
  • Eases stiff joints and relaxes sore muscles.
  • Reduced pain and fatigue.

Our classes include:

Aqua Fit – Glen Ivy’s most famous aqua aerobics class has been a guest favorite for years and is a fun way to get fit in a gentle and supportive environment.

Aqua Zumba® – Fitness with a splash!  Aqua Zumba® is a high-energy, low-impact aquatic exercise class that blends Zumba® philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, for a workout that’s cardio-conditioning, body-toning and most of all, fun!

And don’t forget to stay hydrated! We all know that drinking water is important for good health, so why not jazz up your water with fruit, herbs, and spices? Bring the spa home with you by trying out the below recipes:

Watermelon Basil Water

  • 1 1/2 cups of seedless watermelon, cubed
  • Ten to 12 basil leaves
  • One half gallon of water

Pour water over melon and basil. Refrigerate for two hours and then serve over ice, garnished with a sprig of basil.

Citrus Cucumber Water

  • One large lemon, sliced
  • One large lime, sliced
  • One large orange, sliced
  • One large cucumber, sliced
  • One half gallon of water

Place all fruits and vegetables in a glass pitcher and add water. Allow to infuse for two hours before serving over ice.
