Are you an adult who wants to learn to swim? Maybe you are looking to spend more time with your family in the pool. Or, you might want to learn to swim in order to get in better shape. Whatever your reason, learning to swim is an exciting adventure HPSC can guide you in.
“Swimming or taking classes with Gerrie feels more of having fun and learning at the same time. I personally enjoyed every class, and many more to come.” Mila – Participant HPSC Adult Swimming Classes
However, it does take time and effort, so you need to prepare yourself to embark on swimming lessons as an adult.
When you watch other people gliding gracefully through the water, it may seem like swimming is easy. But it is harder than it looks. You need to have the right expectations before you start learning to swim. Otherwise, you might give up when the going gets tough.
People who are not prepared to invest the time and energy into learning to swim often get discouraged and give up. Having the right expectations helps you to work through the tough parts to achieve your goal.
“I joined HPSC at the end of November 2015 with limited swimming skills under the coaching of Gerrie van Beek. HPSC’s strive for excellence, clear vision and alignment with my goals lead to a successful completion of half Ironman swim just two months from the start of my program. As a result of my lessons with HPSC I am now a confident swimmer taking part in multiple races as well as swimming for leisure.” Anastasia – Participant HPSC Adult Swimming Classes
A good example is our adult swimming class participant Anastasia, she had a clear goal in mind and together with her coach Gerrie a plan was created to reach this. Communication with your coach is vital to make sure your expectations are aligned with the coach’s vision. We are very proud of Anastasia’s progress and happy we could be part of her journey.
Investing in the right equipment at the beginning is helpful and can spare you a lot of frustration.
A great instructor is critical to your success. Make sure you communicate with your instructor frequently about your progress and how to improve. At the High Performance Swimming Club, we have experienced instructors that can help you to learn to swim quickly.
With HPSC’s professional guidance and coaching skills I overcame my fear of water and step by step I managed to come out of my comfort zone and swim in to the deep side of the pool. Mila– Participant HPSC Adult Swimming Classes
