A great way to learn flow and fast track your lesson planning skills.b)What is a Tutorial Video – A tutorial is a video-guided PowerPoint presentation with a Certified WaterART Master Trainer which reviews all the classroom sessions and information that instructors would typically receive if attending an on-site training event. Video tutorials are an excellent investment as they can be reviewed several times, especially if the information is new and somewhat overwhelming. We highly recommend our guided tutorials to those who are not familiar with exercise science.c) Educational Videos offer a a multitude of exercise inventory and ideas. Often in a program you can’t teach or train every exercise variation, modification or progression;  however, we give you “lots” of ideas to add variety and progression to your skill set. Having more ideas to plan a program and/or work with a client are the cornerstones of efficacy.
