Introduction to Aquatic Personal Training

Product Image
By Aquatic Exercise Association
If you are a personal trainer interested in expanding your training options to the water, it is important to learn about the aquatic environment. The water's viscosity provides resistance that surrounds you and provides "work" for every movement in every direction. The water's buoyancy reduces body mass, impact to weight bearing joints, and spinal decompression in deep water. The water's hydrostatic pressure affects many of the body's physiological functions. If you want to be an effective aquatic personal trainer, learn about the special benefits and qualities the aquatic environment has to offer and incorporate that knowledge into your personal training sessions. This course will start you on your way to becoming a successful aquatic personal trainer.
