Section 10 | Video Submission Instructions

In an effort for Aqua Body Strong™ to ensure the quality of ABS™ programs for participants, instructors, and facilities, we require that all students who take our online certification program submit a 25 minute choreographed video of themselves demonstrating their ability to teach a safe and effective workout on the Aqua Body Strong™ board. This assessment video is due six weeks after the purchase of your online certification course.


As you know, once you are a certified Aqua Body Strong™ instructor you will be able to teach the four basic ABS™ formats: ABS™Flow, ABS™ Strength, ABS™ Kids and ABS™ Active.  When creating your 20-25 minute choreographed video, please include four 5-minute segments featuring each format using regressions and progressions. Feel free to utilize resistance bands for ABS™ Strength, Team Building Games for ABS™ Kids and Gentle stretch and strengthen moves for ABS™ Active. We have also included a table below of the top ABS™ movements to help you with your video. Please also include, an introduction and safety briefing before getting onto the board. 

Aqua Body Strong™ Assessment Criteria Example


First and foremost, you will be assessed on your ability to teach a safe workout, smoothly executing the movements, exercises and transitions technically and effectively, using both regressions and progressions in your video. You will need to show exercises that flow smoothly from one sequence to another, using the board both in lateral and horizontal directions.
