CALA BPM Recommendations


Create a well balanced 4 phase class


  • LAPS
  • SA
  • ROM
  • SOM

It is important to have a Balance choreography to ensure the participants experience the full benefits of your excises.

Sample class

Charlene and Sheila conference

CALA Instructors teach from a Holistic Perspective

Each Phase address Holism:

  • Mind
  • Body
  • Spirit

Each movement affects the body in a specific way that may vary from participant to participant (same below - sample affects).

Have you considered offering either a full Aqua Kickbox class or introducing some Kickbox movements into your generic Aquafit classes. Kickbox classes include Upper and Lower Body movements which are combined to a series of choreographed blocks.
