Classes: If you're interested in water exercises, contact your neighborhood YMCA, YWCA or a health club with a swimming pool. Chances are that the facility has one or more water-exercise classes. Equipment: A number of manufacturers of water-workout equipment sell by mail-order or by telephone--many through toll-free calls--rather than through stores. Here is a sampling: Spa Bell Total Fitness System, resistance equipment,(703) 914-0637. Wet Vest, buoyant vest, (800) 433-2627.

Too injured or too tired to perform your usual running or walking routine? Consider strapping on AquaJogger, a deep-water exercise belt, and heading for the pool. Manufactured by an Oregon company, the cushioned $50 belt "keeps you in a vertical position and out of the water from the shoulders up," said Linda Gosch, a spokeswoman for AquaJogger (information: (800) 922-9544). With the belt, even non-swimmers can work out in deep water.

Howard Barsky loved his tap-dancing class, but he wanted variety in his exercise routine. So one night Barsky decided to join his wife, Nina, in her exercise program--an aquatic workout. Barsky took it easy, splashing through the warm-up moves and jogging gently in the water. Slowly, he followed the instructor's lead in exercises meant to tone the hamstrings, quadriceps and other muscles. He relaxed and breathed deeply during the cool-down.

Waves splashed over the edge of the pool as swimmers scissor-kicked and sliced their arms through the water. The instructor stopped, pausing halfway through an hour class of water fitness, and had the exercisers check their heart rates. From Cybill Shepherd to Bo Jackson, the splashy set is making water exercise the latest fitness trend in California and across the nation.
