Group exercise classes
The best aquatics center in Goleta would be incomplete without a long list of group classes and activities to help you keep your workout routine fresh. If you’ve ever attended one of our aqua aerobics classes, then the odds are good you already know the benefits of water workouts. You’re guaranteed a low-impact, high-intensity workout because the water takes the pressure off joints and adds muscle resistance.
Want to put your swimming skills to the test? Our Masters Swim class blends fitness and competitive swimming for anyone 18 or older. These structured workouts use interval training techniques in a competitive and fun atmosphere to help you get more out of your pool time.
Flexible free swim hours
Is there anything worse than getting suited up only to find that every lane is full or the pool is closed? At Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club, we want to make accessibility as easy as possible. With our flexible hours, two heated pools, and year-round schedule of lessons and team practices, we ensure our members can take advantage of our aquatics center whenever they need it.
