The hydro-cise sessions are led by a qualified instructor and use a range of different equipment such as weights and specialised floats to reach your personal fitness goals. With a mixture of group tasks and individual work-outs dur...

Posted by david on June 21, 2018 at 4:20 AM

So the first question to always ask is “do they ne...

What you need to know on your first lesson

Posted by david on September 8, 2017 at 12:30 AM

We get asked alot what do I need to bring or how do we need to prepare for our first lessons. I therefore thought I would write my thoughts and feelings on the matter.

First thing is to find out some information from your swimming lessons provider. The obvious things such as days, times and where they will be swimming.

You also need to know some more specific information such as the name of the teacher, where they will be swimming in the pool and what they should do when you arri...
