About Our Indoor Pools and Outdoor Pool
Exercising in the pool offers a fabulous aerobic, awesome cardio and strength work out experience in a low- or no-impact environment, so it is great on joints. Classes vary in intensity from arthritis range of motion and flexibility classes, to traditional upbeat water aerobics, to calorie-crushing interval classes.
Both of Our Gyms Have Pools!
The pool facilities on both campuses of the JCC of Greater Buffalo make it possible to provide a wide range of aquatic programming. Both locations’ indoor pools are open year-round for lap swims and classes. At Amherst, the Grossman Outdoor Pool Complex is open during the summer months. Whether you use the pool for exercise, recreation or to develop new water skills, the aquatics staff can accommodate your needs. Our pool temperatures are maintained between 84-86 degrees.
