Welcome to

Mary Essert, B.A., Hendrix College, Aging and Human Services, College of DuPage, IL

I specialize in creation and delivery of water fitness and post rehab aquatic programs for individuals with disabilities and conditions such as Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Breast Cancer, Lymphedema, Post Polio Syndrome, and Chronic Pain issues. Since 2007, I have emphasized work in cancer and upper extremity issues.

My educational materials are available in state of the art systems. Current in-home/online education offerings set the standard for online CEC education in a variety of file formats for multiple portable devices and lifestyles.

I traveled to Spain for the Aquatic Management of Fibromyalgia Workshop. Read about my adventure and pictures of the event.

I am a certified Cancer Wel Fit instructor, and I hold current certification from Aquatic Exercise Association and am a trainer for the Aquatic Therapy and Rehab Institute. I have been honored by AEA, ATRI and twice by the International Swimming Hall of Fame and the State of Arkansas for Senior Fitness Leadership. My professional experience in the wellness field includes my company “Move It or Lose It”® which served Seniors in land and water exercise in Chicago and my return to the disability field in CA in 1994 where I was employed by two physical therapy firms and taught in the Albany School District adult education program.

Currently I am employed as a Water Fitness Instructor at Conway Regional Health and Fitness Center. I may be reached at
