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. We know that training in the water and on land requires specialized skills. We encourage our professionals to explore both career paths. Instructors may teach only water exercise or enjoy teaching both land programs and water programs. Each modality will require specialized training for a better understanding on how training on land ( with gravity) is unique to training in water ( using the protection and properties of water).
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. We have developed education for general programming as well as more specific programming so that a profession may specialize their skills to provide more teaching opportunities.
Our programs will take you through a system that helps you to understand the differences between:
1) Land Fitness and Water Exercises,
2) Swimming and Water Exercise Fitness,
3) Traditional Aquacize and WaterART Fitness.
WaterART has 24 full Home Study Certification programs (Land & Water) and an education library of 110 DVD's/or Video Streaming Programs. WaterART Fitness strives to offer practical tools for fitness professionals specializing in water exercise. Additionally, we offer onsite training continuing education course workshops, certification courses and many ongoing clinics and conferences throughout North America. Anyone may attend any event; however, only Certified Instructors are qualified as they have completed the competencies or achieved a passing grade on both theoretical and practical exams. Each program is structured to help you to learn more specific exercise design.
The Certifications combine both theory exam as well as a practical skills in the certification process which provides a balanced background for education. With WaterART Fitness, professionals must earn their qualifications or Certification(s). There is no option to transfer from other certification organizations.
Achieving many levels of Certification is a way of validating the competencies of an instructor or trainer. Becoming Certified not only provides an opportunity to purchase affordable liability insurance but provides an instructor/trainer with the understanding of how to work with a variety of health histories, skills as well as fitness goals.
WaterART is are always progressing and developing our resources for fitness professionals through research and ongoing education. It is our goal to help educate both the professionals and consumer to better understand the why's and hows to make exercise safe, effective and enjoyable. WaterART advocates self paced exercise, not choreographed or canned routines. We provide a system to monitor and regulate intensity so the individual may perform at their personal best whether training on land, in the water or requiring specialized programs for individualized medical conditions.
We also offer a full WaterART Professional (WP) Membership Program. Participation in a membership is separate to qualifications and an annual program. Each membership has benefits as well as an added value gift.
