All registrations via WaterART Fitness.  Limited to 15 registrations. With this program you take on onsite training workshop and then you complete the exam process via home study education within 6 months of the onsite training date. This program will examine the most common types of arthritis to better design programs for this clientele. You will learn to modify and progress exercises, and to vary impact and intensity to meet the multi-level needs of group exercise programming. There are more than 100 diseases in the arthritis category and it is widely accepted that most of the symptoms may be greatly benefited through water exercise. This program will review exercise inventory for safe and effective exercise design based on an understanding of functional range of motion and joint action. The balance program will target cardiovascular training, functional fitness, muscular endurance and strength, balance and flexibility training. WaterART working positions will be introduced to provide multi level programming to help each participant train at an appropriate intensity level for self paced exercise – appropriate for types of arthritis. This program will also introduce the use of flotation and resistive devices such as noodles and paddles for improved performance. Water Walking and Tai Chi movements will be incorporated to train mobility, gait and balance. SKU: CTW005-Antigonish-200328
