From Baby Swim classes to Silver Bear Swim for seniors, Silver Bear Swim School has curricula for everyone. The smiling instructors each bring their own specialty to the pools in Reno and Sparks, but they all share a love of swimming—and of teaching. In myriad programs, these instructors cater to a wide spectrum of levels and ages, inspiring swimmers to do their very best in the facilities' cool blue lanes. There, splashing in the supervised indoor pool, swimmers can learn the basics, refine their techniques, or even lead a league to victory. With programs that are as diverse as the enrollment list, Silver Bear Swim School inspires students of all stripes.
Silver Bear also offers aqua fit classes for a variety of students looking to improve their fitness while minimizing joint stress. Their Swell class is geared toward expectant mothers, offering a low-impact workout aimed towards reducing the discomforts that often arise during pregnancy, like backaches, fatigue, swelling, and cramps. Parents and their babies can bond and build water confidence in the Sweat & Splash class, while everyone can benefit from the high-energy Chisel class, which combines body sculpting and aerobics.

The certified trainers and staff at Saint Mary's Center for Health & Fitness believe that when clients have access to a wide variety of activities and amenities, they’ll be likelier to stick with their fitness goals. At this spacious center, members work up a sweat in the gym, which features free weights and a fleet of cardio and strength-training machines, but there’s far more here than at most public jungle gyms. Jog around the three-lane indoor track, or take a Pilates class in the private Reformer Pilates studio. There’s a separate spin studio, a giant group-fitness studio, and a large indoor pool, where members swim laps and gain lean muscle in Aqua Blast classes. Kids can come along, too, since there’s a complimentary, supervised children’s playroom, and when workouts are finished, clients can head over to the Internet lounge and café, where they can purchase snacks and beverages to refuel.
