Whether you are a swim coach, a land fitness instructor, a personal trainer, a health care provider or an aquatic fitness enthusiast - this program will fast track your skills. The onsite training course will highlight the information and skills you need to learn through a "HANDS ON, FEET IN" approach. This practical system is the premise of WaterART Fitness Programs. We want you to understand what you are doing and how to communicate it to your participants so they can achieve their personal best. We believe that exercise must be purposeful and our goal is to help the individual perform self-paced exercise. Compared to other programs, we do not have a choreography based approach. Although music may compliment and enhance any program, we advocate that the instructor allow their participants to move at their own speed and perform their preferred amount of repetitions of the exercise. You need to become Certified to secure a job at a community center, a private health club, or condominiums, or school or perhaps even run your own business. We are committed to helping you getting job placement.

DescriptionThe goal of the program is to provide a more athletic approach to fitness classes (weekend warrior through high performance runner). This training will help the Instructor to cross train their client(s) using the protection and multi-dimensional resistance of water fitness. Intervals of cardiovascular conditioning will be integrated into flexibility and muscular strengthening sets. A runner will need to stretch the tight muscles and strengthen the weak muscles which water exercise naturally does. Both shallow and deep water formats will be utilized. Deep H20 will utilize a buoyant belt to allow the athletes head to stay above the water, yet learn to work high intensity without impact or joint stress. The advanced session will utilize buoyancy cuffs on the arms and legs with a variety of exercises and progressions. Buoyancy cuffs are advanced equipment for runners who are looking for the highest performance training.
