Deep Water Running
The seven-week NYRR Deep Water Running course is directed by Robert J. Valentin, the founder and program director of Blue Ocean Swimming. Valentin has more than 25 years of experience empowering beginners to overcome their fear of the water and motivating and training all types of athletes to help them achieve their goals.
•Non-impact exercise for aerobic fitness
•Simulates land running and provides cross-training for runners
•Class sessions include imaginary cross country courses, interval training, hill pacing, and sprint
Classes are 45 minutes and limited to 30 participants. Each class consists of a stretching and strengthening warm-up, a 30-minute aerobic workout, and a cool-down of gentle stretching. Because Deep Water Running is stationary, people of all levels can be in class side by side. (There are no make-up classes after the session ends.)
