Aquababies

The award-winning Galter LifeCenter Aquababies program is a parent-child swim class dedicated to educating parents on water safety while acclimating their child to water in a safe setting. Our warm water pools and certified instructors create an ideal environment for introducing first-time swimmers to the water through creative games designed to progressively teach the fundamentals of swimming. Parents will learn the appropriate ways to hold their child in the water while their child develops motor skills related to swimming, such as supported kicking, back floats and jumps. At the end of the lessons your child will be ready to participate in Galter LifeCenter’s Learn-to-Swim program.

Effective September 1, 2022: Galter LifeCenter will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination from ages 6 months and older.

"As a cardiologist and internist I believe in the importance of regular exercise. I try to exercise 3 times a week either at Galter LifeCenter or running outside (while the weather holds). It's still possible to attend an individual exercise session with a trainer at Galter LifeCenter. Exercise can also be done at home on a regular basis with their virtual classes." -Franklin Saksena, M.D.
