Any adults out there none swimmers or none confident in water?
I was a none swimmer til a while ago....Im 46 and never swam a stroke in my life!!!!
It has always put a damper on holiday activities and leisure not swimming. Dont get me wrong, im not afraid of water, quite confident. I will go in the pool all day or even into the sea as long as i can touch the bottom. Not a problem for me most of the time as im 6` 2" tall and the last pool holiday it was 4` deep max!!
Still dont swim tho and had to walk round. I can happily do my martial arts excercises in the pool etc!
I always promised AFTER
every holiday to take lessons but felt a little embarassed to do....46 and cant swim!!
After the last hols I took the plunge and signed up at Ginea Gap Baths in New Brighton (Seacombe/Wallasey??)
I go there because they have the lessons on a Sunday afternoon which is great for me working all week.
The instructors are great, understanding and very encouraging. No pressures and you move at your own pace. I just follow exactly as they ask and I have improved leaps and bounds. I cannot beleive I have been missing out on this all my life. I have done well because of my confidence in water I think.
We have a private pool, seperate and behind closed doors from the public, which I think has also helped me because of my embarassment!
Well, I am 46, today I swam 34 widths unaided in an hour, and its only my 4th lesson!!!!
Anyone interested should give it a go. Great excersise, my body aches to hell and I feel GREAT!!!!
