The benefits of cardiovascular activity and aerobic exercise are immense. According to the American Heart Association, physical activity will improve your overall quality of life. This notion is shared among most health institutions. Though learning how to swim is considered as a safety precaution for preventing a series of accidents when in or around water, swimming has been scientifically tested to improve one’s well-being because it is part of a complete exercise regimen. It is considered to have the least amount of stress on joints with benefits like improved flexibility, strength, coordination, and aerobic prowess. Studies also show that the body becomes naturally inclined to consume more oxygen during high-intensity phases of exercise, which strengthens the lungs and allows swimmers to breathe at greater ease during rest. Aerobic exercise also decreases resting heart rate and blood pressure. The health benefits resulting of two to three 30 minute swim sessions each week can ultimately transform your lifestyle and drastically improve your overall well-being. You don’t need to become an Olympic swimmer in order to enjoy the maximum benefits of aerobic exercises. However, you do need to challenge yourself. Here at Splash Fit Swimming, we encourage swimming to be used as a tool for great mental and physical health!
Our skill levels are designed to help you progress in becoming the best swimmer you can be. Each class is assigned an instructor for the appropriate skill levels to be achieved. Instructors range from experienced WSI for Parent & Child Aquatics and Learn to Swim classes to USS badged coaches who refine stroke techniques for competitive swimming. Skill levels are not locked in. As the participant progresses and achieves the skill assessments, all assumed by the instructor, the swimmer moves on to the next level. There aren’t any strict checklists or manuals to follow, objectives and distances change as the participant learns and shows improvement. Please be sure to review each course’s skill level prerequisites. Knowing where you or your child’s skill level is leads to the best overall experience.
At the end of each session, expect your progress to be acknowledged! Swimmers who complete each course earn a certificate signed by their instructor either praising achievement in participation or advancement to the next level. Here at Splash Fit Swimming, we are all about progress!
