increasE mobility

Active movement in the water has been shown to be effective for improving overall joint and muscle mobility.  

Build strength

Moving in the water is more challenging and allows you to build strength against the water's resistance just like weight-bearing exercises on land. And its intensity-adaptable!

Build stamina

Increase your heart-rate during my workout in a safe and low impact environment to build your aerobic and functional stamina so you can keep up with the kids!

manage pain

Water is the perfect place for a workout. The cushioning properties and buoyancy is better for your joints as you move.

improve balance

Water provides a more challenging environment to move in which engages your stabilizing muscles & strengthens your joints for physical activity outside the water.

Low impact on joints

The buoyancy and cushioning properties of water is the best place for your joints during exercise. It's low impact at all levels of intensity.

What Makes My Program Different

I have taught many aqua fitness and aqua therapy courses over the last 15+ years. I obtained my BSc in Human Kinetics (the study of human movement) from the University of Ottawa in 2009. 
My passion for exercise training ranges from one-on-one focused fitness and therapy to large class instruction.
I can say with confidence that my clients see results and keep coming back because my program simply works!

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?

Water provides the perfect environment to do a low-to-high intensity workout that's easy on your joints. The resistance of the water also helps improve strength and stamina during exercise. 

When will your course be available?

My course will be available by January 2024. When you sign up, you'll be the first to know about it.

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

I have taught aqua fitness and aqua therapy programs for nearly 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. 

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.
