What you put into a class is what you will get out of it, so make the water work for you! Come find your depth. Whether you prefer the deep or the shallow end, you won't be in over your head. Use the water for a workout that is low on impact but high in resistance, that will get your heart pumping and leave you feeling energized.

Activity Level

Moderate to high


SDC Pool

The Student Development Complex lap pool and dive tank are licensed by the State of Michigan and inspected by the Western U.P. District Health Department. Accordingly, the water is analyzed and the temperature is taken daily. The temperature fluctuates between 81-87 degrees and this will depend on the pool usage, outside temperature and water flow rate. The water is replenished automatically due to water lost through splash, backwashing of sand filters and evaporation. This new cool water intake will not be 81 degrees until it is well mixed into the existing pool water.

Special Requirements

Appropriate swimwear (bathing suits, no cutoffs or street clothes) and a towel. Water shoes are optional but recommended. Though exercises are performed with your head above the water, some students also prefer to use swim caps and goggles.
