Greetings all,

A friend mentioned that she had joined a class in Atlanta that offers water aerobics, a walking track, and other amenities at the church outreach building. For seniors, the cost was ONLY $5 per month! She was overjoyed at the price and the fact that the facility was so nice and newly built.

The Atlanta church recently expanded its offerings to include a newly built community center that had an olympic pool, fitness area, work out room, and other nice health related offerings, available to the public.

Does Charlotte offer anything like this for such a reasonable cost? Perhaps affiliated with a church or community center?

Thanks,
sandy

You can try the YMCA. The prices of their programs go according to your income.

Thanks all for the great suggestions. Does anyone know of a program that has a pool (besides the Y) for water aerobics?

I don't know about around here, but frequently community colleges have pools with low membership rates and activities for a variety of ages!
