Land Aerobics Program
Winkler Pool Management also offers land aerobics, which is popular after the pools have closed and
the weather turns colder. Our classes are tailored to meet your residents abilities and desires. Our
classes range from low-impact classes that are ideal for special populations such as obese or senior
citizens, to high/low impact for people who like a mixture between high and low intensity.
Water Aerobics Program
Water aerobics is fast becoming one of the most requested water activities offered by our company.
Our water aerobics program is a low-impact exercise that uses water's buoyancy to protect joints
and cushion the body. Participants get all the benefits of full range movements without having to
support their full body weight.
It is also an excellent way to tone and shape muscles by using the water for resistance training.
Unlike air, water is 12 times more resistant and offers the benefits of both push and pull resistance.
In addition, water also allows the body to be more efficient in cooling itself. The body has a much
easier time transferring its exercise heat to the water that it does to the air. The result is a workout
that feels refreshing instead of sweaty.
Having the ability and confidence to make decisions is very important in the service industry. It
is often a major factor that separates average service from excellent service.
Winkler Pool Management offers Hospitality/Empowerment Training as an additional benefit to our clients.
This training allows our employees to gain capability and confidence. This allows you and your residents
to enjoy excellent service and peace of mind. Our employees have the upper hand on public relations that
you would not experience with other companies in our industry.
Hospitality/Empowerment Training is just one of the many services that helps WPM fulfill our promise of
Total Customer Satisfaction.
