The CYQ Aqua is a course that will enable you to teach safe and effective water fitness classes, also giving you the essential theory knowledge and practical experience on how the body responds to training in water. Increasingly, aqua exercise classes are a popular part of a facility's fitness programme and the ability to teach them is highly valued. Here in the Middle East aqua fitness is being recognised as a very popular workout with both residents and visitors.

In addition to the traditional aqua class you will also focus on the increasingly popular Aqua Circuit training, a mode of exercise favoured by sportsmen and those wishing to get some serious cross-training into their clients programmes, also for those rehabilitating sports injury.
