ABOUT THE PROGRAM

To the fearful, non-swimmer, to those that once learned how to swim and then suffered a traumatic experience, to those that have tried fruitlessly to learn to swim by taking “swim lessons” –

Are you ready to learn to swim well? Are you tired of sitting on the side at social gatherings, your lack of swimming skill becoming a social handicap? Are you longing to splash around with the kids and grandkids in your neighborhood pool or at the beach? Do you want to finally feel “water safe?” Have you experienced an injury and your doctor has “prescribed” water exercise but you do not know how to swim?

The Adult Swim Only Program is the place where you can, as an adult, learn to swim and swim well! Through a holistic approach, you will be empowered to confront and overcome the oppressive, psychological monster of fear, learn to love the water and change your life forever.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

Body Awareness, Body Balance, Stroke Mechanics, and Aqua Exercise

BODY AWARENESS

Body awareness is the ability to understand where our bodies are in space and how our bodies move. During this phase of training, you will learn how your body moves in the water versus on land. The body and brain requires time and repetition to learn how to work together in coordination and memorize repeated patterns.

RELAX AND BREATHE IN WATER

Relaxation and breath are interdependent components of swimming. The Inhalation and exhalation process must continue in order to promote relaxation. Relaxation allows the body to stretch out and elongate.

You will learn how to breathe in (inhale) above the water through the mouth or nose and breathe out(exhale) underneath the water through the nose only.

RESETTING THE BRAIN WHILE LEARNING

The brain learns new behavior through repetition. However, too much information will overload the brain and cause any new information to be forgotten.

You will learn how to maximize your training time and rest the brain during training by challenging and then resting the brain in intervals.

POSTURE, LINE AND BALANCE

You will learn how to see the body as a linked chain. Each body impacted by each others strengths and weaknesses.

You will learn how to use your arms and shoulders to balance the body, how to swim from the torso (chest, abdomen and pelvis), and correct body position for efficient propulsion and power.

FUNDAMENTALS OF SWIMMING & AQUA EXERCISE

Good technique is the basis of becoming a good swimmer. Beginners, especially will benefit from short workouts which place emphasis on creating flexibility, balance and strength throughout the body.  A gradual development of core and back strength leads to being more balanced and efficient in the water.

COMPONENTS OF FREESTYLE

You will learn the difference between the pull and catch phases, timing of the arms and legs, and transitions to and from full freestyle to streamline and vice versa.

Previous body awareness will have led the groundwork for ease in learning freestyle. You will also learn how to do rotary (one side) and rhythmic (two-side) breathing.

CALISTHENICS & STRETCHES

You will build muscle tone through in-water bodyweight exercises that target specific swimming muscles.

Calisthenics & stretches supple the body and encourage flexibility, steady muscle development, improve overall body tone. We will do exercises for the abs, arms, back, chest, shoulders, and legs.

NOODLE WORK

Do the buoyant nature of a pool noodle, they are excellent tools to teach beginners how to front float, back float, and develop balance and stability in the water.

They are also used in exercises that progressively develop abdominal and back strength prior to learning the components of freestyle.

TIME TO PROFICIENCY

Training time from non-swimmer to proficient freestyle swimmer

On average training can take 3-4 months if working with an instructor 1-2 days a week.  Like anything, the more you practice the sooner the brain and body can collectively coordinate new movements. It typically takes 20-40 (30) thirty minute sessions for an adult non-swimmer to learn to swim well. Put into hours that is between 10 and 20 hours.

Month 1:  Development of Body Awareness and Body Balance

Month 2: Stroke Mechanics

Month 3: Recreational Yardage
