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

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-in-1 Movement Breaks.

What people are 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.
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.
After just 5 days, against all odds I’m regaining range of motion after a shoulder fracture. I’m making great progress, getting better balance and I can put my hand behind my back (which seemed impossible).

Best Warmup Exercises to do Before a Walk

 
(12-minutes) At a time when you’re doing more walking, make sure you do more of this.
