ONE OF THE nicest things about summers is being able to dip in that pool full of refreshing blue waters. While the swimming season begins in April in most places, it’s still not too late to join and learn this crucial life skill. Many clubs and associations in the city are admitting batches for children and adults alike which will take you through a planned process that will help you pick up this valuable exercise.
Learn to float, paddle and eventually swim and overcome your phobia of going to the deep end, so that you can finally make use of your hotel pool during vacations. You needn’t be a swimming novice to join such a class. In this temperature, a 45-minute swimming class can be the perfect form of exercise that doesn’t involve sweating and boring repetitive hours in a gym. In maximum cases, it is also cheaper than most gyms or annual club memberships that give one access to the pool.
Most clubs and associations conduct classes keeping in mind professional and school timings. Batches begin as early 6 a.m. and go on till as late as 8p.m. at Anderson Club. Many clubs also keep afternoon slots open for women and children. While classes are generally held over weekdays, many clubs also offer season or flexible memberships where you can practice over the weekends.
