Excellent review to renew and good price too. Just disagree with Question # 8 definition of study of muscles is kinesiology. Never heard of myology. Also, #14 is primary risk factors? Posted by Diane from Aurora, IL

I love the ease of the certification process. With this certification, I was able to get a great job at the In-Shape Gym in Hanford, Calif and have enjoyed 2 years of great aqua fun. Thank you Posted by Sandra St.John from Hanford, CA

I love Aqua Classes

The course book is informative and has good pictures. It is easy to understand the material. I have great fun teaching Aqua classes.

Good Material

Aqua Aerobics is such a wonderful certification. I enjoyed the material and therefore was able to complete the test fairly quickly and with a good score.

Posted 1/24/14 by Heide Cutler from Saline, MI

Good info & great examples. Carol Ann was amazing.

The information given was very detailed and the examples well executed. Over all it's a great program for the price. I only have one concern...on one of the test questions dealing with anatomy the question was "What muscle was in line one". When you click on the page for the picture there is no line one, it just shows the muscles with three numbers like 86, 43, 76 ( not exact numbers) pointing to different muscles, it was very confusing, I had to guess what it meant.

good comprehensive test

Best Certification Ever

I have been Fitour Water Fitness Trainer for a long time. I just loved the material and the DVDs. They have details for making you the Best in your Area. I get a job anywhere I go. I love you guys! THANK YOU SO MUCH. Dione

Very good and detailed

I enjoyed the Aqua certification. Lots of interesting facts and good hands-on exercises explained and shown.

Posted 3/4/12 by Heide from Saline, MI

Quick and easy.

Lecture part was great! Recording during the exercise demonstrations could have been better. There were a lot of background noises, a lot of background pounding and other people splashing in the water, and walking about the pool area. A bit distracting, if you ask me. But other than that, I still give you 5 stars for the great overall presentation! :)

Posted 2/12/12 by JEANETH GLENN from JEROME, ID

The on-line instructions are easy to follow. Thank you.

Posted 2/10/12 by Martha from Ridgeland, MS

As an exercise physiologist who has been in the health and fitness industry for more than 20 years I felt that FiTOUR provided correct information in an easy to learn text/format for the Aqua certification. I enjoyed the on-line option because I am unable to travel due to a hectic schedule with my children.

Easy to use and navigate

I am yet again impressed at how easy home education can be for instructors. While taking my first class was imperative to understanding concepts the follow-up with renewals through Fitour's online program is one of the best in the industry. Very focused questions and easy to do in under an hour!

Posted 8/8/10 by Karen Cowden from Orlando, FL

Aqua Aerobic

I feel this was much better than Ace or AFFA, as the follow along CD makes it more interesting and easier to follow for home study. Plus the CD gives you many great ideas for putting a Class together...great surport!

Complete and detailed verbal and written instructions

Posted 2/21/10 by Debbie from Florissant, MO

Straight and to the point instruction

I watched the DVD/CD. Wrote in the accompanying book and reviewed all the info before I took the test. I got a high score and felt like I had a good understanding of the material. Thank you Fitour.

Posted 2/5/10 by Cynthia Mascott from Sherman Oaks, CA

I enjoyed the flexibility of studying at home.

It was great having the manual with pictures and DVD to help me become more knowledgeable about aquatic exercise, and to sufficiently prepare for the on-line exam.

Posted 2/5/10 by Tonia Mitchell from Tallahassee, FL

Comprehensive & practical for an at-home exam!

I was pleasantly surprised that this at-home course was so comprehensive & practical. As an experienced instructor wanting to branch out, this course (especially the video but the manual as well) covered all the basics, not just the terminology & the facts, but the practical exercises as well. A great surprise!

Posted 6/26/09 by Jackie from Fair Lawn, NJ

I really have enjoyed all the courses I have taken

Thank you for your quick reply to my testing issue. It is a pleasure to deal with this company. I really have enjoyed all the courses I have taken with you guys it has enhanced my ability to teach a wide variety of fitness programs to my High School Physical Education classes and has affected the fitness levels of my young and old individuals. Thanks again and I look forward to taking more courses with you. I also think carol ann does a great job of teaching these courses she makes it very enjoyable!!!

Specific and professional presentation!

I was nervous about my first online certification experience, but I came away very impressed. I have been a water fitness instructor for several years, having trained with others. Now I have a better understanding of the "why and how"...Thanks so much!

good study manual

Posted 2/13/12 by gayla smith from dothan, AL

I have previously taken another aquatic certification and I found the Fitour materials to be excellent by comparison. I have also take other Fitour classes and liked them very much!

Posted 7/26/10 by Pat Pierson from Tucson, AZ

Informative of fitness components as well as exercises.

The manual and video were informative both for fitness components and knowledge as well as exercise examples. I found it to be helpful and benficial in preparing to teach aqua.

Practical to use

I like that I was able to watch and rewatch the dvd as many times as I needed. In case that you are not a dvd-friendly;, the dvd-information is printed in the handbook manual.
