WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

WHY SHOULD I DO THE COURSE?

Aqua fitness is a small but significant component of the fitness industry, offering a training modality that is crucial for the health and fitness for some individuals, particularly those who are unable to train on land. 

As a result, the demand for aqua instructors is high, while job prospects are considered to be positive.
