Aquatic Personal Fitness Training
Aqua Personal Fitness Training is an excellent modality to develop a comprehensive fitness routine that focuses on your own personal goals, needs & precautions. Our personalized 1-1 or 2-1 aquatic personal fitness training emphasizes cardiovascular exercise, core stability, balance training, muscle strengthening and recovery from injuries, surgery, or pain. All the non-assisted stretches will be guided by the therapist.
Water is an ideal place to take the first step to health and fitness because it can be adapted and modified to the individual depending upon their particular needs. The beauty of exercising in the water is that it can provide a strenuous work-out for the elite athlete or can be tailored to meet the needs of the novice. Water is a perfect place for the person who has joint problems to start exercising in because it allows the effects of gravity to be diminished and allows movements to occur that would be painful and difficult on land. For the injured runner it allows them to maintain their aerobic function while not causing further damage. Deep water running has proven very successful to many world class athletes who have overuse injuries. The usage of water exercise equipment (eg: soft foam dumbbells, aqua gloves, ankle cuffs and resistant paddles) allows clients to build muscle without using weights.
Our philosophy of health and patient-care is aligned with a sports rehab/physical therapy approach focused on long-term, preventative wellness – advocating active care and lifetime wellness.
