WaterART Fitness International specializes in education for instructors, personal trainers, health care providers and consumers. We offer both land and water fitness programs either via onsite/live training or home study/correspondence education.
WaterART is an acronym for understanding how to design purposeful programs. We believe that the Application of Science is an Art.
Our programs will take you through a system that helps you to understand the differences between
1) land fitness and WaterART Fitness,
2) swimming and WaterART Fitness,
3) traditional aquacize and WaterART Fitness.
We believe that programming must be safe, effective and enjoyable. Whether teaching on land or in the water, a leader must design programs that will help the individual participant gain results whether in a group or training individually.
