It’s never too late to learn to swim, or to improve your technique and fitness!
We all know that taking regular exercise like swimming will improve health. It is good for your heart, can boost your metabolism, and reduce body fat. Swimming can reduce the risk of conditions such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease as well as reduce the risk of stroke. Swimming can also positively affect your mental health, by improving mood, and may even reduce stress and anxiety.
Not only is it good for you, but learning to swim can open many opportunities, to have fun, swimming with family, when you are on holiday, or as a healthy hobby. It is also a life skill which could save your life.
The learn to swim programme offers a range of lessons for adults at all levels of ability and with different aspirations.
These lessons are great for adults who have never had the opportunity to learn to swim, have limited swimming ability, or are afraid of the water. The focus is on building confidence in the water and moving on to improving stroke technique.
We also have a specific water confidence group for those wishing to overcome a fear of the water, or have never had any experience in the water.
These lessons are aimed at those wishing to improve their swimming technique, fitness and stamina.
