Prof. Charo Belenguer

Personal Trainer

Hydro Therapists TEAM


Charo, along with Lourdes is the design genius behind the bespoke pool facilities at High Hopes, where she has also implemented the highly coveted MITAF Waterfit programme. Co-ordinating hydrotherapy sessions between teachers, parents, care-givers and on-site professional therapists enables the team to tailor sessions to each student’s specific needs, capabilities and objectives. The programme has seen several success stories, not only with mobility, but also with behaviour and heightened self-esteem among kids.

With more than 20 years’ experience, Charo is a qualified lifeguard and Rescue and Lifesaving instructor and since 2005 has been a Personal Trainer for people with a disability (MITAF Programme).
