Aquatics

The St. Vincent’s One Nineteen Aquatics Center includes a six-lane, 25-yard exercise pool, a warm therapy pool and a 12-seat whirlpool. Our 92-degree therapy pool serves those with specific orthopedic limitations. Members use our 104-degree whirlpool to massage and relax muscles after workouts. Members might also access the saunas and steam rooms in our upscale locker room area, just a few steps from the Aquatics Center.


The Center is open to all fitness members. Members may enjoy independent water exercise, join a class or swim laps. Our aquatics and fitness specialists are available to prescribe a specific exercise routine for any member. Aquatic exercise is an excellent, low-impact activity for those dealing with arthritis, fibromyalgia or other orthopedic concerns.

Our Aquatics Center also hosts swim lessons in private or group settings, for all ages, at any level. Members may access the pool for lap swim and family swim times. Those times, reserved for members’ convenience, are posted quarterly. Be sure to consult the complete Aquatics Schedule.
