I used to reference the RDA measures for water intake and discuss 3.2L for men and 2.9L for women to my clients. I would mention that some hydration comes from your food (like the 9-13 servings of fruits and vegetables you should be eating everyday) and some from the liquids you drink (straight water and other beverages). Empathetically, I might quote a company that manufactures high tech body composition testing equipment who use total body water readings and admit to using a suboptimal average in their calculations because virtually everyone is dehydrated to a degree.
I have gotten my certification in water aerobics with the American Sports and Fitness Association. Now my current students will know that I'm certified. Next step will be teaching a large group class at a gym or recreational facility.Visit my personal trainer page at Facebook.

This summer I started training some of my clients in a swimming pool. My clients have enjoyed it and tell me it is more like play than exercise. One of my clients asked 3 of her friends if they wanted to be part of a small group training, so I train them together in one of my client's pool one morning a week.

With the summertime approaching, almost everyone has travel plans. The weather will be great and the kids are out of school. It's the perfect time to get away. Vacations can be great for unwinding, but can also wreak havoc on your fitness goals!
Instead of completely abandoning your current fitness program, you can modify it to fit your temporary surroundings. The same applies to nutrition. You don't have to toss your nutrition plan overboard just because you're on the road. Just make healthy dining choices whenever possible while you're away.
You need to be well hydrated while you're on the go in your busy day to day busy routine!!! Being hydrated by just 2-3 percent will impair aerobic workouts up to 10 percent.
Yes this means no water no weight loss for you my friend. Luckily there is a chance you can lose all the weight you want and the remedy isssssssss !!!! Yep you guessed it WATER
Sometimes you just need to jump in with both feet. That's what I did, literally. This week I quit my job at Snap Fitness and started working as a group Aqua instructor at the Clark County YMCA. I am so happy with that. The people at the Y are so amazing and caring for everyone there. So this week I have taken many different styles of water fitness classes and even did a little teaching. It was so much fun. It can also be frustrating. So many people feel that water aerobics is just wimpy. Water exercise really is not wimpy. After all, Michael Phelps is a beast.
