Who is the Mer-obics Class For?
Mer-obics is for kids who already know how to swim and have already taken our Mermaid 101 class, but wish to continue body & core strengthening training the mermaid way! Mer-obics classes are a great way to encourage kids to look forward to a weekly workout that is both fun and effective.

Tons of fun and an unforgettable experience!
Where and when are classes held?
Classes are held at the convenience of your home or neighborhood swimming pool. Simply pick your preferred date from our available dates calendar located on our registration page and get ready for a Mermazing experience! We encourage parents to get a group together with other like-minded parents, and plan a class that will meet weekly at your neighborhood pool.
Are there any pre-requisites?
Anyone enrolling in Mermaid University must already know how to swim, and be comfortable in and around water. We require that all students enrolling in Mer-obics class have already taken our Mermaid 101 class and know the safety rules of being a mermaid, however if you are confident that your child is ready for Mer-obics and has not taken 101, we will waive the pre-requisite after a short swim test performed by one of our instructors.
What will the student learn in this class?
This weekly course will teach students exercises done while wearing a mermaid tail that will help build & strengthen core muscles. There will be three basic categories of workouts that will be performed during Mer-obics including but not limited to:
Surface Water Aerobics (With face and head out of the water)
On the Wall Exercises (Exercises done while using the wall of the pool for support)
Underwater Exercises (Swimming below the surface of the water with face and head submerged)
Vertical twists, Core-rolls and seat lifts are just some of the fun workouts that we will be included in our class. Every class will be different and unique, customized to your student’s swim skill level.
Can I wear my own tail?
Feel free to use your own mermaid tail if you already currently have one!
