Lap Pool & Family Pool
LifeStyle members have the option of swimming at our west Akron location, which offers a six-lane lap pool, as well as our Green and Stow locations, which offer the same, plus a family pool.

Our six-lane lap pool is heated and available during all hours of operation. Dedicated lanes are open for lap swimming, leisure swim and structured programs. Every attempt will be made to keep one to two lap lanes open. Dependents can only use the pool during dependent hours and must be accompanied by an adult. The lifeguard has the authority to grant dependents, under 17, permission to swim without an adult based on evaluation of swimming skills. A lifeguard is on duty at all times. Seventy-two lengths of the pool equal one mile.

Warm Water Exercise: A low-intensity workout in the warm water physical therapy pool, emphasizing strength and joint range-of-motion exercises. This class can benefit individuals with special considerations, including (but not limited to) osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, total joint replacement, chronic lower back pain and/or fibromyalgia.

View of the pools at our Health and Wellness centersAdult Lap/Exercise/Recreation Swim (L/E/R): Within each lane, adults may swim continuously in a workout setting, exercise or relax and play. Accommodations will be made for all levels of swimmers, including non-swimmers who prefer to exercise in shallow water or by holding on to the pool side. This is the best time to take advantage of unscheduled pool time. However, all efforts will be made to keep at least one lane available even during organized programs. Ask the lifeguard on duty if you want an extra lane line put in or taken out. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Monday-Friday 5:30 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Saturday 7 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Sunday 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

LifeStyles Aquatics reserves the right to use the warm water pool for special programs, events, and rentals. We attempt to post all activities in advance.
