For more than 15 years, I designed and instructed countless water aerobics, water resistance, and water therapy classes that are functional and effective for optimal physical health outcomes. And today, I'm here to help you along your journey with AquaViva Fitness!

Keep consistent and you'll see initial results in as little as two weeks: noticeable improvements in strength, stamina, and mobility!

increasE mobility

Active movement in the water has been shown to be an effective way to increase joint range-of-motion and muscle flexibility. 

Build strength

The natural properties of water provide exercise resistance, similar to the gym. The resistance such as downward movements against buoyancy strengthen muscle and bone.

Build stamina

Water aerobics exercises build your stamina. By increasing your aerobic output in the water, you'll help strengthen your heart and lungs for everyday living.

manage pain

The water provides a natural cushioning for your joints and helps to reduce physical pain while you workout.

improve balance

Moving through water requires more effort, engaging your stabilizing muscles such as your abdominals and spine-supporting back muscles necessary for good balance.

Low impact on joints

The buoyancy and cushioning properties of water is the best place for your joints during exercise. It's low impact without sacrificing a good workout!

What Makes My Program Different

I understand how the human body needs to keep moving. Movement is paramount for a healthy body and as we age, movement becomes increasingly precious.
Our joints work hard for us and as the years pass, movement can become challenged, often leading us to a more sedentary life.
Water-based exercise helps eliminate the tradeoff between the demand on our joints and functional fitness. My program is designed with both in mind: a safe and easy environment on your joints without sacrificing a great workout!

Frequently asked questions

I'm not a good swimmer - can I still do the program?

Yes you can. My program is for mid-waste depth and not in the deep end of the pool. You can also choose to wear a buoyancy aid like a belt for added safety.

Why the water versus on land?

The water is a cushioning workout environment that reduces impact on bones and joints. Water-based workouts are effective and help eliminate the risk of joint injury.

When will your course be available?

I'm currently building interest in my program. My program is aimed to launch by Spring 2025.

How long have you been teaching water aerobics and water therapy courses?

I have taught aqua fitness and aqua therapy programs for more than 15 years. My experience ranges from class instruction to 1-on-1 personal training sessions. 

Chlorinated water makes my skin dry. Do you have any tips to help with dry skin afterwards?

Some pools use salt water which tends to be better on your skin. You may consider looking for local pool facilities that are salt water. Special moisturizing soap when you shower afterwards is also a good idea, followed by a thick body moisturizer. Water-based exercises can also be done in natural bodies of water as well as natural pools.

What if I have specific questions about the exercises? How can I contact you?

You are welcome to email me anytime with any questions you might have. Feel free to email me at Justin@aquavivafit.com

Is your program doable for all fitness levels? 

It sure is! You can increase or decrease your workout intensity by simply lowering the speed of movement in the water. In the water, the faster you move, the more resistance you'll encounter and that can be dialed down to a more manageable pace. 

I don't have a pool at home. Where can I do your program?

That's not a problem. You likely have a community pool in your local area. Find out what times are available for public leisure swims (note: it might be a good idea to call and find out what times are available to do exercises on your own).

I have a knee replacement (or hip replacement). Are there precautions to take?

It's always a good idea to first check with your doctor and make sure you are cleared for any exercise program. The water is in fact the best place to workout if you have any artificial joints as the environment will be low-impact. 

I have a heart condition. Are there precautions I should take?

Be sure to first check with your doctor before starting any workout program. Community pools have lifeguards on duty who are trained in first aid, CPR, and defibrillation. Typically, the water is a cooler workout environment that helps to keep heart rate lower as you workout too!
