WHY ADULT SWIMMING IS GOOD FOR YOU!
Swimming is an activity that improves all-round fitness and can enhances stamina, strength and suppleness. Unlike other activities this is achieved all at the same time. If performed properly, with good technique, an adult swimmer will benefit from cardiovascular improvement, muscle strength and gracefulness.
Adults should consider the benefits of being able to perform backstroke, breastroke and freestyle correctly where the entire main muscle groups; abdominals biceps, triceps, gluteals, hamstrings, and quadriceps are engaged. Imagine being able to exercise your whole body at the same time including; the muscles in your face, neck, shoulders, hips and groin with little fear of injury because of the weight bearing support gained from the water. A whole range of people can benefit from being able to swim properly even with minimal restrictions caused by arthritis, pregnancy, weight issues and asthma e.g. Swimming also does not discriminate on the grounds of age.
We may call ourselves a nation of swimmers but if you care to visit a public swimming pool you will find that the majority of participants are not swimming as such but are merely travelling through the water. SwimEasy can assist in the long term improvement of the adult swimming community by providing the following classes.
Unfit Adults and Adult Improvers
This group includes a large number of adults who can actually swim but who find their progression through the water restricted due to lack of fitness, poor technique or the inability to perform more than one swimming stroke.
Triathlon swimmers, known as triathletes
Triathlete swimmers are concerned mainly with ensuring that their swimming fitness is sufficient enough to enable them to finish the swimming phase of their discipline quickly enough to enable them to proceed to the cycling phase of the event with an advantage over their fellow competitors. Many triathletes find swimming to be their weakest discipline and this can be attributed to their lack of technical ability in the freestyle stroke. At SwimEasy we help to improve the freestyle technique by providing our specialist one-to-one stroke technique classes. Our specialist coach for this group already coaches competitive swimmers and has the expertise and knowledge to improve technical areas which may not have been explored in their normal training routine. Coaching can be booked as a set of one hour Adult sessions, over 8 consecutive weeks.
