I just started a position as a Fitness Coordinator at a Senior facility. This aquatics instructor is very sweet, but we have recieved many complaints. She also is going through many physical issues and always tells us how she “needs to get in the water”. Her skill level is very low also and attendance in her class is low also. These are all reasons to pull her from the classes. We are looking at cutting back her schedule for Fall, but she will still have two time slots. Suggestions on how to handle this are welcome. I have some ideas, but hoping for clarification and other ideas!
Kimberly, I truly understand your position.
One has to take into consideration environmental heat and humidity whether one is teaching an aqua class or a traditional fitness class.
I am of the opinion that there are strategies that one can take in order to avoid exercising during the hottest portion of the day or when it is too cold. In this way one doesn’t have to jump in and out of the pool.
It’s about safety for everyone.
