Club GA – Warm Water Therapy Pool
What’s it all about? Club GA’s warm water therapy pool is heated between 88-92 degrees.  Traditional indoor pools are kept around 77 degrees.  Club GA’s pool is 3 ½ -4 ½ feet deep, so it’s perfect for floating, walking, light aerobics, stretching sore muscles and even sitting on the built-in-pool-bench and just enjoying the jets!


What are the benefits of warm water therapy pools?  The warmer temps aid in relieving joint and muscle pain.  Water’s natural buoyancy supplies resistance and moving through water has a lower impact on your muscles and joints.  Warm water increases circulation, which results in a decrease in swelling and muscle inflammation that can occur from injuries or daily stress.  Warm water stimulates blood flow and can be helpful in fighting the pain and stiffness of arthritis, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions.

                                          Come join us for a game of Pickleball!

Pickleball
Have you tried pickleball yet?  While it originated in 1965, the game has been making a comeback in recent years nationwide!  A cross between tennis, badminton and Ping-Pong, pickleball is a great game participants of all ages can enjoy!


What are the benefits of playing pickleball?  This is a great game that is fun to play!  It also strengthens muscles and bones, boosts cardiovascular health, reduces stress, helps maintain a healthy weight and enhances brain function.  The best part… it’s SOCIAL!  You can play singles or doubles!


What can you do to make your pickleball experience better?  Be prepared!  This includes wearing supportive shoes and possibly even forearm, wrist or ankle stabilizers/supporters if you have a weak joint.  Pre-play warm up exercises and post-game stretches are always a good idea too!


New to the game?  Then Club GA is the place for you!  Come try it out during our “Intro to Pickelball” Sessions Monday’s and Wednesday afternoons!  Check-out our  Wellness Schedule for more  detials!
Come join us at Club GA-Otsego!
