"Every time I come to Ballantyne, I feel refreshed. We live in the Atlanta area and come to Charlotte to see our daughter and her family. One of the highlights is looking forward to water aerobics at Ballantyne. Not only are the grounds and hotel an inspiration, but so is Antoinette, the instructor. My husband asked why I needed to go for a workout when I am a member of a gym in Atlanta. I told him Antoinette was the best instructor in water aerobics that there is. She encourages not only in aerobics but a healthy lifestyle, and she is an adorable example with her own fitness. Thanks for the uplift! "

Belly Dance: Burn Belly & Hip Fat to drum style music & exotic moves
We are pleased to announce the we now offer Aqua Zumba classes at select locations:
Water aerobics is a very popular way to exercise for people who are overweight and those who are recovering from injury. Aqua Zumba incorporates dance and fitness moves and makes it fun for anyone who wants to exercise in the water. Accompanied by fun, upbeat music, Aqua Zumba makes exercising seem like a pool party.
Exercising in the water gives you the same benefits as exercising on land. Cardio stamina, muscle building, and weight loss can all be obtained from a water fitness class. Movement against water creates resistance that is similar to other resistance exercise such as weight lifting, exercise tubing and fitness machines. In addition the buoyancy of the water makes movement low impact creating less stress on the body.
Aqua Zumba uses mostly Latin music rhythms such as merengue, cumbia and salsa. Because of the resistance of the water, movements will be slower than in a class you would do on land, yet they can be just as intense.
It is recommended to wear special water shoes while doing water aerobics. These shoes provide cushion and support and have tread on the sole to create traction for the bottom of the pool. Some aqua shoes have soles that facilitate water drainage.
