The finale classes at the International Aquatic Fitness Conference (IAFC) feature a final curtain call of aquatic fitness fun led by select presenters from the event. Most presenters just teach a short, spontaneous routine. Spontaneity is NOT my strong suit. Therefore I taught a segment I teach in my classes called "Match the Number." As we close out another successful IAFC, I decided to share the entire 8-minute segment.

Match the Number is a super combo that features 8 moves.  The challenge is that you have to match the number of moves to the corresponding number.   Therefore your 8 moves have to be in the following order: single, double, triple, quadruple, quintuple, sextuple, septuple, octuple. Check out a sample of the full routine that was taught in the IAFC finale class.

Coming soon!   I do plan on filming the Chair-Fit class I taught at IAFC.  The Sit & Fit classes at the Sarasota YMCA are one of my absolute favorite classes to teach.   Thanks go to to AEA's Arthritis Exercise Program because I borrow many of my moves from the Arthritis Manual.   And then of course I choreograph the living hell out of those moves.  Fun is had by all!

IAFC 2019 was extra magical this year thanks to a new location in Daytona Beach and five days of glorious weather.  Thanks to all who supported this years conference!
