Helping to build confidence in the water, our swimming lesson programmes offer progressive levels of achievement, where skills and abilities are developed.

Available for all ages, one-to-one or group, beginners to competitive level, the lesson content and stages are based on the ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) National Plan for Teaching Swimming standard which allows for each individual to progress at their own rate. Our friendly and compassionate team of instructors understand the importance of learning to swim, and are there to motivate and educate the pupil to enjoy the pleasures of swimming and to help build confidence in and around the water in a relaxed atmosphere, whatever your age.

SWIMFIT ACTIVATE+

A Swimfit Activate+ session is an exciting new social experience in the pool delivered by a fully qualified Swimfit instructor. You’ll discuss your individual goals before getting started on your very own pool workout programme to follow, including various strokes to try and tips to get more from your swim. You’ll feel supported by your fellow swimmers and motivated to go to greater lengths every time you swim.

Swimfit Activate session cards are available from the Swimfit poolside unit or from Reception. This means that you can still get the most out of your swim during general lane swimming and casual pool sessions.

There are 30 Swimfit Activate session cards ranging from 10 lengths to 120 lengths. So if you’re aiming to swim 20 lengths, simply pick up the 20 length Swimfit Activate session card and get swimming! Why not aim for 22 lengths next time? Once out of the pool, head over to swimfit.com to log your session and discover much more from the world of Swimfit.
