The instructors at Waterworks Aquatics believe anyone can learn to swim, no matter their age. This belief drives each instructor-led session, accommodating everyone from babies as young as 3 months old who are just getting acquainted with the water, to older children learning more advanced strokes and adults learning to swim for the first time. The instructors focus on teaching stroke techniques that utilize muscle memory and rhythms that are easy to grasp, while cultivating a fun, relaxed environment to help reduce students' anxiety. They lead private, semiprivate, group, and Parent and Me lessons, all of which move at the pace of the swimmers' abilities. Beyond bestowing swimmers with efficient form, the lessons also help them stay safe in the water by teaching them how to control their breathing, reduce unnecessary movement, and stay completely still in the presence of pool krakens to avoid begin seen.

Instructors never run out of steam at BODYROK. It’s their job to keep the atmosphere upbeat and encourage students to push through their demanding Sculpt and Cycle classes. The 40-minute Sculpt classes heighten the core-toning effects of Pilates with cardio exercises on individual Proformer machines. The Proformer's resistance can be adjusted to accommodate any fitness level so first-time students can follow the workout and veterans can continue to challenge themselves. In Cycle classes, students hop atop Scwhinn A.C. Performance Indoor Cycle Trainers that use magnets to generate resistance instead of forcing riders to pedal through tubs of yogurt. The two workouts collide in the 50-minute Sculpt and Cycle class as students hop from Proformers to Schwinns for a blend of lower body- and core-focused training.

The patter of gloves against heavy bags and the paced breathing of circling sparring partners fills The Boxing Club with energy. That's amplified by trainers, who lead classes in everything from cycling to kickboxing. There's muay thai, for example, an MMA fighting style that torches calories with flurries of flying elbows, knees, and fists, or jiu jitsu, which focuses more on grappling.

Martial arts are, in a way, just one more way of working towards physical fitness for many at the studio. Fitness goals are helped along by a full weight room, cardio area, and pilates studio. There's also a full locker room for cleaning up afterwards.
