Water Exercise Coach helps aquatic fitness professionals and enthusiasts keep on moving during COVID-19.

Let’s do this together.

Like many of you, I miss working with my clients. I put together this resource page to help keep people moving while at home, to share tips on maintaining pools while they’re closed and make a plan that keeps everyone safe when we get back in the pool together again.

To help keep people moving, I reached out to my fellow Wavemakers®, a community dedicated to providing life-enhancing water exercise. At a time when most people have no pool access, we need new ways to stay fit and active. Using our pool workout philosophies, we put together gentle whole-body mobility and strengthening routines for land called 6-in1 Movement Breaks.

Here’s what people are saying:
Shortly after I released the 6-in1 Movement Breaks, I got a message from Nancy from Belgium saying: I just did your video before going for a walk. I’ve had back pain for a long time and miss my pool workouts, but this routine brought relief. I will definitely continue to do the exercises.

An instructor in Florida heard from her participant: I can’t tell you how much my husband and I enjoy the movement breaks. We do one daily on our patio. Thank you for sharing.
