“I have been a member of this tennis facility for 25 years, even before Sammy purchased it.  A year ago, I had to hang up my  tennis racket because of chronic back and hip pain. I didn’t want to drop my tennis membership at GRC so I started looking for classes that would alleviate some of the pain in my joints. I was a competitive tennis player for over 40 years, and getting out of bed every morning was very painful. When I found Fene’s Water Aerobics class, I could tell my body loved it!  I could run, jump, kick and exercise without any joint pain. I felt 20 years younger!  It’s amazing how exercising in the water makes your feel...kinda like being in a space capsule with zero gravity. Fene is a very dedicated instructor and definitely knows her physiology, anatomy and kinesiology. In one session, she will work out every part of our body. We do upper and lower body strength, cardio, stretching and balancing just to name a few. She is aware that some of us have limitations, so her instructions always include a modified version.  She has an amazing knowledge of the human body! I have a master’s degree in health and physical education, so I understand and see the benefits of everything she instructs us to do.  Thank you, Fene, for your professional training and caring so much for all your students!
