Important Considerations Regarding Hiring a Personal Trainer:

  • Understand that there is a big difference between land and water exercise. Only Nationally Certified Water Fitness Instructors should be teaching water exercise.

  • Remember, teaching land and water exercise is like comparing grapes to watermelons. They are very different.

  • Check for Credentials When teaching water fitness personal training, each instructor should definitely have the following two (2) National Certifications:
    1. National Certification for Water Fitness Instructors.
    2. National Certification for Aquatic Fitness Personal Trainers.

  • Water Temperature Considerations
    The average indoor multipurpose pool temperature is 84 to 86 degrees. Some pools are colder or hotter. There is no way to keep everybody happy regarding pool temperatures.

The USWFA Motto is:

"The Health and Safety of our Participants (including our Instructors) is our 
Top Priority!
