A life-long dream of mine recently came true when
I had the opportunity to film several water fitness
videos for Fitmotivation, an online streaming company
founded by Mark Grevelding who is an AEA training specialist, consultant, and continuing education provider for AEA, ACE and AFAA.
The first video, Fribata, debuted today at www.fitmotivation.com and is an aqua Frisbee Tabata/HIIT workout. Only Fitmotivation subscribers can access the full workout, but you can checkout the preview below.
After a weekend of filming, I have a new appreciation and respect for film makers. Hours and hours of prep work are involved to make a short video, including script writing and rewriting, memorizing lines, gathering props and equipment, traveling to location, setting up shots, filming segments (so that when something is flubbed, the entire shoot thus far doesn't have to be scrapped), and then doing any required voice-over work in a sound studio, and finally, editing to create a whole out of individual parts. Our shoot involved several cameras including an underwater camera! I enjoyed learning the process of making a short video and was overjoyed to get to share my passion for creative, yet effective, aquatic exercise.
I highly recommend a Fitmotivation subscription if you're a water fitness instructor! So many awesome workouts to choose from. Visit the website (www.fitmotivation.com) for subscription rates and services. You won't be disappointed. And Fitmotivation is also perfect for water fitness enthusiasts who travel but want a guaranteed great water workout or who want to work out in their home pool. You can prop your laptop or tablet poolside and follow along with the video, or watch the video and then use the audio version in the pool with waterproof earbuds.
Stay tuned for more of my water workout videos forthcoming over the next two months from Fitmotivation!
Lover of dance, dance-fitness and aquatic fitness.
