The weather is getting warmer and warmer, and it is a good time to learn how to swim. As a grown-up female, sometimes you feel you want to learn swimming, but need to be reminded of WHY you want to learn and take swimming lessons.
We always ask our students in the women’s swimming lesson, “why do you want to learn how to swim’. The reasons why women might choose to learn swimming are listed below:
1. Fitness and Health
Awareness of fitness and health is the No. 1 reason why women are learning to swim. Living in a city like Hong Kong where people are always busy with something, chances of actively doing exercises are rare.
One day, you woke up thinking you need some form of exercise to keep being healthy. The first form of exercise that comes to mind: Swimming!
Swimming is a low-impact form of exercise that can improve cardiovascular health and provide a full-body workout. If you do not know how to swim, learn it!
It would be a way to improve your fitness level and achieve your health and fitness goals.
2. Acquiring a safety skill
It’s never too late to acquire a skill that keeps you safe. Knowing how to swim can help you increase safety when engaging in water sports and activities, such as boating, fishing, snorkelling, diving or kayaking.
3. Stress relief and relaxation
Our women’s swimming lessons are not about competing in swimming galas or being faster than others. Competitive swimming, we know, has no place in an adult swimming class.
Swimming can be a relaxing and stress-relieving activity that helps to reduce anxiety and improve mental health. Living in a fast-paced city like Hong Kong, swimming can help you find your peace.
4. Learn Swimming to Boost Confidence
It’s not about Girl Power, feminism or anything like that. It’s solely about feeling better about yourself.
If you are previously feeling uncomfortable or intimidated in the water, learning to swim can help you overcome such feelings, and help build confidence and self-esteem.
5. Swimming as a Family Activity
Women who have children or other family members who swim may choose to learn swimming to participate in water-based activities with their loved ones.
6. Social Opportunities
Swimming lessons can provide social opportunities for women, as they can interact with other students and instructors in a supportive environment.
In summary, learning to swim can provide women with a range of benefits in physical, mental, and social aspects. If you are also looking to improve your overall well-being, you should come and take lessons with us.
