Adults achieve significant improvement very quickly...
"Many adults are surprised how few lessons are required, the reasons are simple ... adult pupils listen carefully, get the idea then give their best ... they are focused because they have objectives. Once they have the idea it’s then just a matter of practice. Ironically, it’s those that are most unsure if they’ll ever be able to swim that make the greatest progress in the shortest time frame. Having a dedicated teacher for each adult makes such a difference - it’s so effective. Give us a call to discuss how we can help." Anne Scanlon - Founder and Principal Teacher
Swimming lessons for adults at The Swim Centre are...
- 1 on 1 ... one pupil to one teacher making lessons very specific and effective
- private ... there’s no spectators
- same gender teachers (if required) ... female pupil with a female teacher
- convenient times to suit work schedules
- warm 34C water ... 1-1.8m depth
- confident and mature teachers ... adults assisting adults to learn
When adults contact us they say they have decided to have swimming lessons because they want to...
- “overcome a fear of water”
- “improve how to breathe while swimming” ... particularly free style
- “meet employment criteria” ... police, services, aircrew - to prove they can swim a distance, they have a level of fitness etc
- “correct poor style” ... so they can swim further and faster to take part in summer activities like ocean swims, triathlons or simply feel confident in a friends pool or at the beach
- “overcome a health problem” that requires low impact activities like arthritis, heart conditions, joint injury ... water provides buoyancy so the impact on the muscles and joints of exercise is significantly reduced. In fact often exercising in water allows movement that would otherwise not be possible, such is the reduction in pain from one's body weight being supported. This is why many adults swim - it’s a low impact exercise/activity
- “be more confident” so they can play with their children in the water
- “to enjoy an overseas holiday”
- “to reduce anxiety” created by ‘deep’ water
- “learn a new skill” ... swimming
- “to take up a water sport” – snorkeling, diving etc
- “to learn how to manage stress and panic” if the unexpected occurs when they are in water ... lifesaving techniques like how to tread water, how to conserve energy etc
Swimming is an essential life skill .. invest in enjoying each and every water experience
