Water-based fitness instructors are currently in great demand. If you're considering becoming an aqua fitness instructor, there's never been a better time than now because the demand for your knowledge, skills and services are at a record high.
Aquatic fitness is very different from land-based exercise and is an incredibly popular and in-demand mode of group exercise. If you want to learn how to teach aqua-based exercise then this aqua instructor course could be just what you are looking for.
Group exercise continues to grow in popularity and taking this activity away from the studio provides an exciting change of pace for those you teach. Our level 2 aqua instructor course teaches you everything you need to know about planning and teaching effective exercise in water. You’ll also discover how water affects the body and how you can use this to your advantage to teach exciting, engaging and effective water-based classes.
Our aqua qualification is very flexible and is especially popular with exercise to music teachers and personal trainers looking to expand on their repertoire and increase the number of classes, sessions or services that they can offer. It also makes for a great piece of continuing professional development (CPD) evidence for those looking to learn new skills or to accrue some extra CIMSPA points.
The on-demand structure of this aqua instructor course ensures that you can learn and progress at your own pace. If you want to take a more intensive approach, you can qualify in a matter of weeks. If you want to take your time and master the content before you complete your assessments, then this is also fine because you’ll have up to 6 months to finish your assessments.
Our aqua instructor course (Award) has been designed and priced for qualified fitness instructors looking to add more skills to their profession. Therefore, if you don’t already have a recognised level 2 fitness instructor qualification, you will need to select and complete the Certificate version of the course, which includes anatomy and physiology, health, fitness and professionalism. These additional modules would incur an additional fee of £220.00. Once complete, you'll receive a full Level 2 Certificate in Water-Based Exercise.
You will also need some practical experience of participating in water-based exercise sessions, so if you don't have this experience, we strongly advise that you start attending sessions as soon as you enrol and that you give yourself longer to complete the programme.
This Level 2 Award in Teaching Aqua Fitness is certified by YMCA Awards and is fully endorsed by CIMSPA. Before we can certificate you, we will need evidence of your Level 2/3 fitness instructor qualification.
With the backing of YMCA Awards and CIMSPA, you can rest assured that your achievements will be recognised around the world by all health, fitness and leisure operators.
This programme includes a range of online eLearning style content to guide you through all the essential knowledge and skills. We also provide within this eLearning, a range of short video lectures filmed on a live course to guide you through the essential knowledge and skill development content.
We'll provide you with a practical class demonstration so that you can see how the theory content that you have learned applied to the practical environment. We strongly advise that you watch this more than once and that you take notes to consolidate your learning.
On completion of this level 2 aqua instructor course, you'll be eligible to deliver aqua fitness classes around the world as this qualification is internationally recognised.
If you're thinking of adding new skills and qualifications to your CV, then you might want to consider our Pilates instructor courses, or our yoga teacher training courses.
This qualification is fully mapped to CIMSPAs professional standards and is worth 10 CIMSPA CPD Points.
Join the thousands of HFE graduates, including those that have qualified as aqua fitness instructors, who are now working with some of the world's leading gyms and health clubs.
This water-based fitness instructor qualification includes a range of both theory and practical assessments to ensure you have the necessary knowledge and skills to practice in a live fitness environment. Throughout your studies you'll complete all of the knowledge assessments (coursework) online, whereas your practical teaching skills will be assessed on poolside where you'll need to deliver a full water-based fitness session. As this is an online programme, you'll simply need to record yourself delivering your aqua session and submit this to us for marking. Our support team will help you prepare for this assessment.
