OTHER COMMENTS:

This pool is very welcoming to all newcomers. It is there for anyone in physical therapy or who needs warm water for any reason. It has helped me me a lot as I’ve been recovering from sciatica. Plus it’s just so fun to be in the water. Many of the women in my TU TH class have been going for 17 years.  There are a few fat folks and some not so fat folks, my class has lots of older ladies. Lots of classes offered and you can go independently and do the exercises at your own pace. The dressing rooms are not the best, but if you use the handicap room you have privacy.
