BARBARA R. WOLFROM (Certified)
Aquatics Fitness Instructor/Trainer
Licensed Hydro-Fit Specialist

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

My Aquatic Physical Fitness Programs include; Aquatic Strength Training & Toning (which includes Martial Arts), Senior~Aerobics, Aquatic Theme classes, Deep Water, Sports Conditioning (i.e. golf, tennis, etc.) and Circuit Training. All my Aquatic workouts, develop mind & body connection, cardiovascular, muscle strength, toning and endurance without the stress on the joints and most of all to have fun. These programs may use wave webs, handbouys, and floatation belts and/or Buoyancy/Resistant cuffs and sports equipment to bring a new experience and to enhance the total aquatic workout. All the programs begin by warming up the muscles, gain control of the body and introduce different levels of intensities & variations throughout the workout. Beginners and non-swimmers feel comfortable with this workout because they work at their own pace & level. The waters natural resistance will also challenge the intermediate and advanced student; it is equivalent to working with weights on land, but without the pain & stress on the body. The Athlete will find that the water will add more to his/her training program by conditioning all of the muscles, both the supporting and opposing all in one workout. These programs are designed for all ages; young & old, Men & Women, who are physically fit or just beginning a physical fitness program. People who have physical limitations due to sport injuries, disabilities, etc. It is an excellent way for women who are experiencing the exciting "handi-cap" of pregnancy to keep in shape!
