To become a swimmer, you must begin the journey by becoming comfortable and confident in the water. More than half of all adults report real discomfort about being in the deep end of a pool with nothing to hang on to. Trying to learn freestyle without first being comfortable in the water takes a very long time and isn’t the fun and enjoyable experience it should be.
Here you will find complete details on a variety of swim classes designed specifically for adults who have a fear of water, limited or no swimming skills, or simply need a 90-minute evaluation to determine what swim level is best for you.
DAM offers a swimming program designed to improve the two most important areas in performance: stroke mechanics and high performance conditioning. The flume swimming tank provides a variable speed current of water, so you are swimming against the current! Flume Training is an advanced training tool for simulated open-water swimming, increasing cardiovascular conditioning and more. Read more about Flume Training.
