If you never learned to swim as a child or just don’t feel confident in the water, you’re far from alone.
But the good news is that it’s far from too late to learn. Every year, thousands in the UK learn to swim in adulthood.
Swimming has numerous physical and psychological benefits, and is an excellent way of meeting the government’s target for adults of exercising for at least 30 minutes five times weekly. Swimming burns up to 350 calories in half an hour, while numerous studies have pointed to this activity’s positive impact on well-being.
Equally, with some 400 people drowning in the UK every year, learning to swim could save your life. If you have children, there are numerous benefits to swimming with them as well, and you could share your newly acquired knowledge with your family.
It needn’t take long to become competent in the water as an adult. With just a couple of lessons a week for a few months, you can master the basics.
But, of course, it’s vital that you find a class that works for you, and that’s where The Hub at Riverside comes in.
