“Water based exercise is an increasingly popular form of group work-out.”
Aqua training sessions offer a more gentle, non-impact alternative to gym and studio based workouts which make them ideal for older people and pregnant women.
However, you can’t just jump in at the deep end! Exercising in water is very different from exercising on dry land and specialist knowledge to coordinate aqua sessions is another skill that Studio Instructors may wish to add to their repertoire./p>
The Aqua course can be added to the Exercise to Music course for those wanting to teach effective water based group training sessions and studio sessions. If you are particularly interested in teaching specialist groups, Focus Training also offer Level 3 courses in Older Adult training and Ante and Post Natal training.
