aquaBelly® was founded in 2010 by Samantha Bense and Kristy Wexler. The concept of the program was born with the experience Samantha and Kristy had while working with families teaching swimming lessons to young children. They noticed the expectant mothers had a had time keeping up with their toddle-aged children poolside. This observation when coupled with Kristy's personal experience with high-risk pregnancies yet being permitted to work in the water by her Perinatologist because of the buoyancy and forgiving environment, created the foundation of aquaBelly®.
Once partnered with AFPA to garner their Pre/Postnatal exercise credentials, the exercise library was built upon ACOG guidelines and was soon offered to Moms and Moms-To-Be in Boynton Beach, FL. Now, aquaBelly® is a National fitness and healthy living brand that focuses on Moms, Moms-To-Be, and Active Adult Women. The aquaBelly® brand of water fitness classes are offered in California, Florida, Georgia and Kentucky.
Fitness, nutrition, and healthy living are the core values that drive aquaBelly®. In 2012 aquaBely® expanded its brand to offer water fitness classes to a larger demographic, aquaBooty™, aquaBelly Baby™ and aquaGrand™ classes are now available.
In addition to classes, we offer fitness evaluations, coaching, nutrition and meal planning, breast feeding coaching, as well as instructor trainings. The aquaBelly® fitness program is safe and effective for women during all stages of their adult lives.
