Aquatic Tether Training Course in Calgary

May 20, 2015

Learn about Aquatic Tethering on November 28th!

It is designed to complement the AFLCA Aquatic Exercise Specialty certification. Tethering is an aquatic program that allows participants to hitch onto a stable object, such as a lane rope, to create a form of dynamic resistance offering an environment where intensity meets simplicity. This course will be dedicated to all tethering formats, including both a general and a deep water running approach. Leaders will be introduced to tethering movements and concepts that will appeal to a variety of aquatic exercise groups. This training will educate, inspire and reveal an easy to follow formula that will leave your participants feeling challenged and invigorated (a manual is included with the course). (Please note this is not a certification course)

Location: Killarney Aquatic & Recreation Centre
