CAN BE A WEE BIT CHILLY IN THE WINTER ... BRRRRR!...

Swimming *****My History of Water***** My lasting memory of early reading experiences is that I would read the pictures rather than the words. I would be quite happy creating my own little stories from the illustrations, instead of depending on what the author had actually written on the page. I...

“SWIMMING!!”

published 01/04/2007

Great way to keep fit. Great fun

Early starts for training, Alot of hard Work

I spent a lot of my time swimming either training or competing. I have been training since I was about 8 or 9 and I am still doing it today which means I have been training for about 5 or 6 years. Throughout this time I have achieved so much and have had so much fun. I love the sport even though...

I started swimming when I was 4 months. Ever since then I have been swimming at least once a week, recently more like 3 or 4 times a week. This Saturday I have my first proper regional race, and next year I hope to get through to the county championships. ***Why is it important to learn to swim...

Water safety, confidence, fun

make sure pool is supervised

About October time last year we thought that it would be a good idea for our 4 year old son, Adam, to start swimming lessons. (he is now 5) Now, I myself am a qualified swimming instructor, but there is no way that I would want to teach Adam myself. You know what kids are like in these situations...

Keeps you fit, you may save a life

None

Swimming is a sport that can be done by anyone, old, young, thin, fat, and people with health problems – it can help your breathing, make your body less stiff and help to keep you in condition. I know when my Nan had her heart attack that she was encouraged to start gentle swimming. I...

Mine’s breaststroke!!!!!! (hahahahaha) Swimming is a life skill, it is something that ever child should have to learn to do, in fact lots of schools actually enforce an hour a week swimming practice a week on juniors, but once you have learnt to swim very few of you do it for fun! So come...

Swimming! What a great way to keep those muscles in reasonable shape and have some fun at the same time. In spite of what some people think just about everyone can swim or at least float, although there are a few people with negative buoyancy and they sink like a stone. Those unfortunate souls...

To all you natural "fish" types out there I write this as basically a non-swimmer and a registered disabled person. Despite those facts I love swimming! Huh? I hear you say, they doesn't make sense! Well to go "swimming" you don't necessarily have to actually swim or swim unaided of course. I...

“Get Aquafit!”

published 11/08/2000

Non-impact, gentle introduction to exercise

Not really for experienced gym-goers, although it ...

I took my first Aquafit class a couple of nights ago at a local leisure centre and thoroughly enjoyed myself, as well as getting some much needed exercise!! Aquafit is like gentle aerobics, but in the water - so it is totally non-impact, and is especially good for people with weak bones or...

“Life saving in Pajamas?”

Life saving

PJs

So, what on earth is the point of jumping into a pool in your pyjamas, swimming 200 meters front-crawl, inflating your pyjama bottoms, then having to dive down 6 ft to retrieve a brick, and then having to swim another 200m breast stroke? This was called the 'Bronze Survival', a right of passage...

I have worked as a lifeguard for 10 months this year and during that period of time I have been in the best shape of my life. Swimming is a dream sport in my honest opinion because it combines a full body workout with little or no risk of harm to the vast majority of able bodied people. I...

Swimming is one of the best exercises for the seriously overweight, or unfit. It is gentle and stress-free on the joints. By starting slowly, you can gradually build up the time and effort you put into it. I started out with a couple of widths a week, gradually building up to 100 lengths at a...

“MAD AT SWIMMING”

published 27/07/2000

Fitness, suit any ages and just great fun

Be careful or you could drown

I would tell anyone to go swimming because its not only fun for yourself but you also gain excercise from it. It doesnt cost much you can spend ages there, and you get to look at some incredible bodies. I go swimming once a week and am thinking of taking up more lessons, I enjoy back stroke the...
