Water aerobics has been a splashtacular workout for a dedicated and very lively crew at River Valley Ranch. The program has benefited many participants throughout the years, and we would like to applaud them and their instructor, Barbara Segaul, for their ongoing commitment to the program. Barbara, our dedicated and certified water aerobics instructor, has changed people’s lives for the better by leading classes that increase cardiovascular health, flexibility and joint movement. Participants enjoy the low impact of the water all while improving body mechanics and building strength. Barbara’s passion for water aerobics is shown by her class attendance, motivating music, beneficial workout plans, and ongoing positive attitude. Fantastic job to Barbara Segaul and all of the participants in the River Valley Ranch water aerobics class. Keep up the great work.
