Water aerobics brings many health and fitness benefits to group exercise participants. First, it's a fun, low-impact way to burn calories. With the resistance from the water, your clients are using multiple muscles at the same time and working against the gravity of the water. This delivers a big advantage when it comes to burning calories. During water aerobics classes, clients burn calories more efficiently than when performing the same exercises out of the water, with an average range from 400-600 calories per hour!
Water aerobics moves are versatile so they can be modified for beginners, and can be added to so more advanced exercisers stay challenged. Since most of the exercise movements are performed underwater, it allows participants to work at their own pace without fearing judgement from others. This is especially appealing for seniors and pregnant participants.
ASFA's Water Aerobics Instruction Certification ensures you have the knowledge and skill-set to teach water aerobics with guidance to modify any moves as needed. Another great aspect of teaching water aerobics is that you already have everything you need for class! There is no equipment necessary to be successful in a Water Aerobics class. Your clients are using their own body weight against the resistance of the water to help strengthen their muscles, burn calories, and build strength and endurance. The water provides for greater mobility with no stress on the joints, making it the perfect workout for those coming back into fitness from an injury.
