The Anniston Aquatic & Fitness Center features an eight-lane, 25-yard pool with a depth ranging from 4-7 feet! We offer a variety of fitness classes throughout each day, from low impact for those with arthritis to aqua groove, a dance party in the water! Swim lessons are offered at various times during the year, and the pool is also available for pool parties from 11:30AM to 1:30PM and 2:30PM to 4:00PM on Saturday. We recently received brand new cardio equipment, and we have a state of the art weight room, not to mention that Pickleball is now available in our gymnasium! So, if you are looking for a place to achieve your fitness goals, while having some fun, become a member of the Anniston Aquatic & Fitness Center today by calling: 256-847-7349!
