The Aquacise course is designed to provide an opportunity for the student to participate in a program of exercise and fitness which will fit into the normal, busy schedule of college life. The flexible time and central location of the Aquatic Center make it an ideal course for the total college district population. One to four hours of college transfer credit in physical education is given for each course that is successfully completed.Each of these courses may be repeated, for transfer credit, up to three times.


The student enrolls in the Aquacise class prior to each semester, at the same time they enroll in all other classes. For many persons, this is the only class in which they enroll at John A. Logan College.


Requirements for using the Aquatic Center are as follows: thong and bikini swim suits are not permitted. Modest swim apparel shall be determined by the instructor. A warm, soapy shower without swim suit must be taken immediately prior to entering the pool. Food, drink, personal sound systems, back packs, purses, and clothing will not be permitted into the pool area.

All new students enrolled in Aquacise or Aqua Fitness must attend an Aquatic Orientation session prior to using the swimming facility. Orientation is given during the first week of each semester and provides the student with information relative to course requirements, facility use requirements, and proper, safe use of the pool areas. Students enrolled during the current semester may, after participating in the Orientation session, use the instruction pool as often as they like at the designated Aquacise times. The rehabilitation pool may only be used when available during Aquacise times.

The Aquatic Center is open during holidays on a modified schedule. Please check the Aquatic Center Bulletin Board for each month’s schedule.


Upon entering the Aquatic Center, the student logs in on the attendance sheet at the reception desk. After each workout, the student returns to the log-in sheet and records their time out. Illegible, incomplete, or improperly filled out data will not be entered into the computer.
