Teaching Aqua Combat
The ABS™Aqua Combat class structure is modeled after MMA, boxing and UFC Pro Fighting. A 55-minute class, for example, is broken up into twelve intervals called "rounds". Each round, with the exception of the warmup (round 1) and the cool down (round 12), consists of 3 minutes of "work" followed by a 1-minute teaching transition.
