Our programmes are individually tailored, we understand each person is different. We start with an initial assessment lesson. This is a chance for the teacher and client to meet, discuss goals and set targets.
Here’s a few examples of different programmes and what’s involved.
Designed specifically for adults who are nervous and have some level of fear. The aim is to improve relaxation and build water confidence, through exercises like floating, breathing and treading water.
Water phobia usually comes from:
Water phobia can have an impact on holidays and interfere with trips to the beach and pool.
The first lessons are spent building water confidence. We understand that each person develops at different speeds, so we adjust the exercises accordingly and aim to progress step by step.
Many people simply want to float around in the swimming pool without worry. We teach the basics of floating, treading water and swimming comfortably, gliding through the water with a slow relaxed style is a great feeling. We can advance the programme in preperation for activities such as snorkelling, jet-skiing, scuba diving, jumping off boats into deep water and more.
Do you dream of being a confident swimmer? If you’re thinking, “I do, but I’m not sure If I could” believe us, it’s possible! Once you’re in the water you’ll wonder what all the fuss was about.
We cover a wide range of skills including floating and treading water. We focus on correct body and head position through specific practices. By the end of the course we aim for confident swimming on both front and back. Once you can swim comfortably we can help you develop your technique further.
Can you swim a bit, but get exhausted after 1 or 2 lengths? Do you feel that your stroke is inefficient? It’s probably due to poor technique.
We start with stroke analysis (we see what you can or can’t do). We break the stroke down into its individual elements and correct technique in each area. Then we put all the pieces back together again and have you swimming like a fish.
Choosing an activity to keep you fit and healthy all year round can be tricky. Running is tough on your joints and cycling on the road can often be weather permitting.
Swimming is the ultimate exercise for health and vitality, it helps improve blood flow and lowers blood pressure. It essentially keeps you healthier and happier for longer, just a few reasons why more people choose swimming as their go-to hobby.
During swimming the muscles become very warm, the water offers buoyancy and reduces impact on the bones and joints. Swimming involves a full range of motion which stretches the muscles and improves overall flexibility. This alone can reduce the risk of injury and prevent muscle and joint problems.
Back problems are becoming more frequent, especially later in life. Swimming encourages correct posture, strengthens the core muscles and reduces pain from back injuries.
Are you’re thinking about a triathlon or maybe an open water challenge? It helps to have an experienced coach in your corner to prepare well.
The aim is efficency, minimising resistance and maximising propulsion. We strike a between technique drills and fitness training, with the aim of building a well-balanced, highly efficient stroke. We use video analysis to give feedback.
