Hidden Vitality in the Water

by Rudyard Mortada

It’s often difficult to fathom the brilliance of inspirational individuals in our community. Sara Kooperman happens to be just one of those key figures whose undertakings have shaped the fitness industry into what it is today. It’s safe to say that she has had a stellar career up to this point and does not look to be showing any signs of slowing down. But what do I mean by that?

Sara Kooperman’s ideas have come into blossom over the years, which have meant more opportunities for like-minded fitness enthusiasts, business professionals, students, teachers, and podcast listeners throughout the world. She is the consummate leader who has dedicated her life into developing the way we see fitness and how we can go about living our lives in the pursuit of happiness. Therefore, it’s a tad easier listing the things she hasn’t done rather than listing all her achievements and accolades!

One of Sara’s most notable projects is WATERinMOTION®, the premier aquatic exercise program which took the country by storm. This groundbreaking yet daring concept stemmed from the notion of combining a pre-choreographed program (quarterly rejuvenated) with a sprinkle of music and a dash of fun in the pool.

To all you aqua-phobes out there (I was one as well), I assure you that the water is shallow in most cases, and you will be looked after by some of the most remarkable, astute, and experienced instructors in the industry. You must promise one thing… make sure you come with your dance shoes on, figuratively speaking of course!

No matter your age, fitness goals, current health condition, and injury history there is a program that caters to your needs.

WATERinMOTION® Original: Tailored towards all ages, especially to anyone who has been given the green light to begin working out after suffering from an injury. What you should expect is a calorie-burning workout that is easy on the joints, plus your knees and back will not experience any wear and tear either.

WATERinMOTION® Platinum: Ideal for active aging adults (55-65) and seniors (65-90), deconditioned individuals and individuals with orthopedic concerns. This program primarily focuses on stimulating the mind as well as the body. Fast twitch muscle fibers are targeted since they tend to deteriorate at a much faster rate than slow twitch muscle fibers. The ultimate goal is to assist the participants in making their daily activities easier.

WATERinMOTION® Strength: Those who are new to strength training, as well as individuals who are looking to add another dimension of high intensity training to their workout regimen will find that this program suits them the most. Participants have reported in their testimonials that they have noticed increased muscle strength, power, and endurance after committing to this program.

Once you attend a class, you will surely notice how much camaraderie there is between one another. Everyone wants to galvanize the person next to them. This is the type of environment everyone should experience. WATERinMOTION® is not just a fad. Created over a decade ago, it has stood the test of time and is also the only aqua program endorsed by SilverSneakers®, the nation’s top and most prominent active aging organization in the nation.  WATERinMOTION® continues to evolve thanks to your unwavering support and trust. Do yourself a favor and invigorate your mind and body with one of these inspiring, motivating, and rejuvenating programs.

About the Author, Rudyard Mortada

I never once thought I’d be a writer. In fact, I don’t think the idea was that appealing to me in the first place. But as I practiced over the years and honed my skills, writing became second nature to me, and I fell in love with the craft. I’ve also dabbled in SEO and PR and might happen to know a thing or two. Do you want another juicy tidbit? I’m obsessed with the health, wellness, and fitness industries (maybe too much for my wife’s liking). In all seriousness, this is what I’ve specialized in and have dedicated my life to. Today, I’m an established copywriter, a creative storyteller, and a content writer whose main goal is to help companies optimize their revenue and scale their business through the art of the written word.
