Teachers, coaches, and fitness professionals will want to attend. Participants will use Polar heart rate monitors during the session to determine their own heart rate during different phases of water exercise. Using an RPE Scale, participants will determine exercise intensity and compare it to heart rate measurements obtained from the heart rate monitors. RPE and heart rate will be recorded so participants will be able to see their results and discuss applications of these tools. **Attendance is limited to 35 participants; children under 16 not admitted**
