Aqua Fitness In-Class
We offer in-class Aqua Fitness courses once or twice per year in Victoria, BC. If you can make it to Victoria, the in class course is a fast, efficient, fun, and educational way to receive your Aqua Fitness certification. It is a very practical course, so be prepared to get moving!
If you do not see any dates for an in class course right now, send us an email to get on the list to be informed when our next class will be.
Aqua Fitness is a wonderful way for people to get a workout without the impact. This makes it great for people with injuries, seniors, and in pregnancy. Aqua Fitness is also taught at resorts in countries around the world, so it's a great certification to have under your belt if you like to travel for work (or often stay in resorts for free!).
The In Class Group Fitness course usually runs over 2 days only, on a Saturday and Sunday at a central location in Victoria, BC. If the dates don't work for you, we have private options as well. This course is also always available online.
The Body Blueprint Aqua Fitness Instructor course teaches you all the elements of being a great water-fitness instructor. Within the course, we will review Anatomy and Physiology and what it is to be a fitness leader. We will dive into lesson planning, teaching in the water, use of music, cardio choreography, cueing, strength and endurance, stretching, and safety.
Once you have your Aqua Fitness certificate from Body Blueprint, if you wish to gain BCRPA certification, you are required to teach an 8-hour practicum. To do this, it's important to get to know Aqua Fitness Instructors now so you can find mentors who will allow you to teach parts of their classes with them to gradually work up to your 8 hours. Once you've finished this, you can complete your Instructor Competency Evaluation (ICE), which we can evaluate for you.
If you wish to become an Older Adult Instructor, you can take the Older Adult course once you have a specialty module ICE approved by BCRPA.
